Making Meaningful Resolutions

with Kadam Kyle Davis

Intention setting is an art. And sometimes its hard to REALLY change. We can go months or years staying in the same patterns. As a result, we feel frustrated trying to bring about healthy habits into our lives. Buddhist teachings provide ancient, timeless wisdom on how to create healthy resolutions. These are resolutions that are within our capacity and that we set in a reasonable, sustainable way. In addition, there are special techniques for joyfully shifting our intentions and by doing so, we approach the process in a light-hearted, relaxed way. This allows us to have a long-term vision for personal change and gives us the space to really grow.

Everyone welcome!
