The School of Modern Meditation has at the very core of its mission the creation of more presence in people's lives. Often we start the new year overcomplicating this fresh start with resolutions and aspirations far too lofty to achieve and end up feeling a little lost and disappointed.

Sometimes all it can take is a special 'word' to bring with you throughout the year. Something to weave into every day, something to have at the forefront of your consciousness. With this workshop we hope that we can give you an opportunity to do just that.

Set your INTENTION for the year with SOMM and VANIA - an originating SOMM community member, Awareness Insight Meditator and the mind/heart/breath behind local jewellery label VANIA, for a workshop to remember.

Over three hours, you will create your own Vania 'Intención’ bracelet, a string of literal touchstones, and possibly your 'WORD' for 2023 to wear as a daily reminder whenever you need to be present to your core intentions and as a COMPASS for the year ahead.

Vania’s effortless, timeless designs are inspired by nature and its gems; by music and the way it makes us feel, as well as by the seasons and their varying colours. You’ll be free to explore the treasure trove that is Vania’s collection of semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, Murano glass, and special beads collected on her travels.

The workshop will start with words and an intention setting invitation from SOMM Founder Claire Robbie and then Vania will guide you through creating your special piece.

  • All bracelet materials
