Rather than setting a New Year’s resolution, I prefer to set the tone for the coming year with a sigil. This shifts the focus away from a single goal or task to a larger theme or perspective to consider to help bring about change.
For over half a decade, at the end of each year, I’ve collaborated with my Patreon supporters to craft a sigil for the coming year. They provide a few words or phrases that they’d like to see as a theme for the new year. I go through all of the input and create a list of elements for us to work with.
This year and last year, I’ve done it live via our weekly Zoom session so folks can join in on the process. There’s a link to the video included in this blog post after the image of the actual sigil.
Here is the virtual whiteboard from the workshop:
