Contributions of Intent : Contributions of intent are among the most powerful ways to contribute to the general well-being of our planet and its inhabitants. With regard to Sweet Springs Institute, an example of a contribution of intent is visualizing this organization and others like it gathering energy and offering space for those who wish to experience the delightful sense of well-being that comes from the awareness of how even the most inconsequential of our acts has an impact on the whole and all of its parts. Or visualizing SSI as a place where humans may come to experience the buoyancy of being suspended in a balanced eco-system - a paradise where all needs are met. If you feel inspired to make a Contribution of Intent, let your imagination and creativity take over!

Contributions of intent may take unlimited shapes and forms from intending circles to occasional castings of a net of intent, the expression of a heartfelt link, a drawing, a song, a poem? To let us know about your Contribution of Intent, please send an email to: contributions@sweetspringsintitute.org.
