Here is the second in a series of audio posts. Thanks for listening.
This is the first of a series of audio links I’m going to upload on youtube. I’m starting with texts that are already posted under My Writing. Hope you enjoy.
Start the Way You Intend to Finish: Writing Your Intention with Heather Marshall
Setting an intention offers a path or practice — a lens that colors each moment. Unlike setting a goal, intention is not oriented towards a specific, future outcome; rather intentions are set based on what matters most. They are an opportunity to align worldly actions with inner values, moment by moment.
Start the Way You Intend to Finish is a meditation and writing workshop for setting intention to guide your life offers participants tools for setting intentions that allow them to rest in each moment, being less reactive and more aligned with their core values. Participants will explore what matters most to them, what thwarts their best intentions and how to re-engage intention on a daily basis.

“Gratitude is an emotion expressing appreciation for what one has—as opposed to, say, a consumer-oriented emphasis on what one wants or needs—and is currently receiving a great deal of attention as a facet ofpositive psychology. Gratitude is what gets poured into the glass to make it half full. Studies show that gratitude not only can be deliberately cultivated but can increase levels of well-being and happiness among those who do cultivate it. In addition, grateful thinking—and especially expression of it to others—is associated with increased levels of energy, optimism, and empathy.” (Psychology Today. http://www.psychologytoday.com/basics/gratitude)
Gratitude: A Writing and Meditation Workshop uses meditation, gentle yoga poses and writing to guide participants to a deeper sense of gratitude in their daily lives. Participants will also learn tools for an ongoing gratitude practice that opens pathways to deeper appreciation for who and where they are in each moment.
