Like Mindfulness and Yoga, Gratitude can be a practice that guides, deepens, and directs our attention. Thich Nhat Hanh said, “When we live in the spirit of Gratitude, there will be much happiness in our life.” And Eckhart Tolle, said that, “Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”
It is true, Gratitude is powerful. It is also underrated and seldom practiced.
Research shows that Gratitude contributes positively to wellbeing and improves mental health by reducing stress, anxiety, and depression. On a social level, it leads to healthier relationships as people become more generous, compassionate, and happier. Health benefits include stronger immune systems, lower blood pressure and improved sleep. People who practice Gratitude have a greater capacity for joy and positive emotions.
“It is impossible to feel depressed and grateful at the same moment”
How does it work?
We are hosting this Online Gratitude Circle as a safe place to come together. You can pause, reflect and share your Gratitude with others. The format is simple, we will begin with an introduction to the process, followed by a short grounding exercise. Then each person will get the opportunity to share their Gratitude. You will be encouraged to speak from your heart when speaking, and to listen from your heart when listening.
Each person will get the opportunity to speak once, and if there is time, we may go around the circle a second or third time.
This Circle is limited to a maximum of 20 persons, will be held on Zoom, and participation is free. You are also welcome to make financial contribution via PayPal – details will be forwarded along with the joining instruction. Registration on this page is essential to confirming your place.
“Enjoy the little things. For one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
