January is often a time to ‘set intentions’ for the coming year. What are intentions? Is there a difference between intentions and expectations? And how can we live our intentions, in the present moment, with kindness and compassion?
We’ll explore what the Buddha said about intentions, and how we can tune into our heart’s wishes for ourselves in the year ahead, and in our meditation practice.
