Have you ever heard the phrase, “where your attention goes, energy flows”? It’s true. Your attention is a powerful currency, after all you pay attention. Unfortunately, most people don’t recognize the enormous power their attention offers and its ability to effect and transform all areas of their life.

The Power of Attention retreat will take you on a journey to increase your understanding of the value of this currency, one that Sarah calls your superpower: the most important ingredient for living a powerful, purposeful, love-filled life. You’ll develop a whole new appreciation for your attention. You’ll:

  • Explore how to manage the currency of your attention. Learn to reclaim it so you can avert the distractions that abound in our fast-paced, device-laden culture. You will deliberately determine where, how, to whom, and on what you want to pay it.
  • Wisely use the power of your attention to connect with and enliven what really matters to you such as your relationships, your passions, your projects, your health, your career, and your environment. Discover why your attention is a “currency of love.”
  • Enhance your ability to be more present, self-aware, and focused with mindfulness practices.
  • Learn to use self-inquiry and meditation techniques to cultivate the direct experience of the source of your attention.
  • Tune in to the love that lives through you as you and the love that calls you forth to live an extraordinary life.

Each one of us has the ability to take advantage of this superpower and reclaim the ability to pay attention on purpose. When you do, you can turn your attention inward and wake up to the source of it: love.
