Intention Catcher Workshop

Sunday January 8th was a great day to set intentions for 2017. The Gallery was filled with good vibes from the start. Dante and his mother Kasey helped Rachel Stokes C.P.C. charge our work area with positive energy.

Fourteen participants got to watch as Negative Nancy tried to make and keep her New Year’s resolutions. They soon learned that Negative Nancy was going about it wrong. Rachel explained that resolutions are based on actions and intentions are based on feelings. Nancy made resolutions for the year that did not align with her most important priorities in her life. She was also too focused on the reward or the big grand prize that she didn’t enjoy the journey along the way.

In this active workshop we learned the proper steps to take when setting intentions based on how we want to feel in 2017. Each participant took what they learned and made a colorful intention catcher to take home with them. At the end of the workshop balloons that had been filled with negative energy were popped and confetti and success flew through the air…a great time was had by all!
