2012 Intentions
A Radical Approach to Setting Intentions for a Transformative Year

"Energy is our most precious resource, for it is the means by which we transform our creative potential into meaningful action." Tarthang Tulku

The new year is upon us. Join us for a powerful process for aligning your energy with your deepest intentions for 2012. This is a radically fresh approach to New Year's "resolutions" that offers a process and tools to help you manifest your dreams for yourself and your community.

The evening will consist of various writing exercises, meditations, and conversations.

This workshop is offered by mindfulness/meditation teacher and sustainability consultant Deborah Eden Tull and D Miller, director of Project Butterfly, who will help you make a personal plan for 2012 and give you the tools to actualize this on a daily basis. The workshop will begin with an introduction by our host Midori Takata

Project Butterfly has hosted this workshop since 2009 and it provides invaluable resources and a solid foundation for starting off the new year.

Testimonials ::

In hindsight, what I did in the workshop last January was construct the engine that drove my year. It motivated my decisions--not necessarily easy ones, but ones that always resulted in positive change. I read more, I camped, I saved money, I cooked more, and I made two of the biggest professional and personal choices of the past couple years. This sounds like an infomercial but it's true.

"It profoundly influenced the course of my year to take the time in a sacred communal manner to really examine the narrative that was the previous 365+ days of my life. This workshop had my full attention as the exceptionally grounded facilitators provided the tools and generated the space for me to creatively focus on setting my core intention for the coming cycle of seasons. I would recommend it to anyone who could benefit from the support of community in pushing the boundaries of their potential reality.” Baza

“Ever since 2009 when I first took this workshop with my years have been solidified with intentions that have manifested to my liking. I traveled to Kathmandu alone, I have lost weight, I have a new partner in my life...just to name a few. Because of the simple questions and suggestions offered I have been able to visit tenderly the dark places of non-manifestation (from the previous year) and crack light onto it for the new year with Eden's guidance, candor, and love. She is specific, inviting, and she gets it done! I know I have. Thank you!" Lynn
