MEETINGS START WITH:

The Healing Intention - “There are no perfect processes or perfect people, so we come together to listen, to share, to learn, and to heal.”

MEETINGS END WITH:

The Contentment Intention - “Self, grant me the contentment to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the understanding to know the difference.”


Please note, The Contentment Intention is based upon The Serenity Prayer, originally written by Reinhold Niebuhr in 1932. Consistent with our 4-steps, it has been adapted to remove all religious references, including the directing of the intention to ourselves instead of God.
