Sunday, December 30
Practicing the Power of Our Intentions
The New Year provides an opportunity to Practice the Power of Intention. We will start with meditation to help us focus. Each individual will write down his/her intention(s). After discussing our individual intentions, the group designs one intention to hold in consciousness for 10 minutes We will express our experience with each other and journal to increase our awareness. This is based on the work of Lynne McTaggart and the book, the Power of Eight. When two or more are gathered in prayer, a powerful vibrational field is created allowing us to send intentions into the energy.
Requested Love Offering:· $15.  All proceeds go to Unity Spiritual Center of Woodstock
