The Power of Intention

There’s a lot of noise out there, and it can be tough to focus on the things that matter most to us, and to give energy to the changes we feel called to make in our own lives. Join guest expert and author Scott Stabile for a deep dive into the extraordinary power of intention.

What changes do you know you need to make? What is your heart calling you to do that you’ve been putting off? It could be fear that’s kept you from taking the next step. Or resistance. Or maybe you feel overwhelmed. Scott can help you look honestly at these blocks and take steps to transcend them. With intention as your guiding force, discover just how committed, resilient, and powerful you can be.

Thursday – LETTING GO
To move ahead in an intentional way, we first need to let go of whatever is blocking us. In this fireside session, you’ll write down the obstacles and doubts you no longer need and throw them all in the roaring fire.
In two powerful sessions, Scott leads a discussion about the power of each baby step for reaching major goals, followed by a conversation about creating a friendlier relationship with fear – letting it fuel you, not rule you.
Scott leads a morning stroll with the intention of seeking beauty – in the many natural wonders at Woodside and in aspects of life we take for granted. The afternoon session is about listening to your heart to write truths about your life.
There’s nothing more important than choosing to love yourself, because it affects your relationship with everyone and everything in life. Discover ways to create self-love, and take home tools to be your own greatest cheerleader.
