Set aside two hours once a month to reflect on how you could live with more intention and equanimity throughout the ebb and flow of changes in your own life, in nature, and in the world throughout the year. Participants will read poems, write creative pieces or journal entries, and reflect on various ideas sparked by each month’s theme.
