Caitlin: Intention-setting is a powerful part of ceremony and ritual. Intentions imbue ceremonies with meaning; they offer directionality, a means of orienting, and anchors to return to. We might think of the ceremony as what we do and the intention as why we do it. When we meditate or do any practice routinely, we can become disconnected from what brought us to practice in the first place, as well as from what keeps us returning. Practices can become more about what we do than why we do them. This meditation is all about reflecting on and refreshing our intentions as guides to our practice.
