Description

Do What you Mean and Mean What You Say. Doing things with intention makes all the difference in our lives. That’s what kavannah (intention) is all about. We’re going to create meaning and discover intention through music, games, writing, and prayer. We’ll find holiness in our actions and explore ways to develop it further. Over the course of three weeks, we’ll begin to discover our place in the world, and figure out how to make the best of any situation that comes our way.

  • Week 1: Who we are, talk about meaningful and challenging moments in our lives, find music and words that match these moments.
  • Week 2: Build intentionality through individual and communal writing and a review of selected prayers.
  • Week 3: Taking your intention with you – build a plan for a meaningful future.
