After successfully building up and accompanying the European Network “Dankbar leben” in the coordination team between July 2012 and December 2014, Brigitte Kwizda-Gredler has decided to dedicate most of her support during 2015 to finalizing projects within the network, e.g. the documentary movie about witnesses of grateful living and the booklet about mindfulness and gratefulness in schools.
Mirjam Luthe-Alves and Christiane Ströh de Martínez will continue to be on the coordination team during 2015 and are currently looking for new team members interested in joining. Already so many friends have been sharing their contributions in a silent way – thank you so much! Without you, we would not stand where we are now.
We send a heartfelt “Thank you!” to Brigitte for her overwhelming dedication to the network and all coordination efforts – the fruits of her work and her heartfulness are visible and will continue to ripen. And we trust she will always be a networker in many networks from her whole heart…
We are profoundly grateful to share with you the accomplishments of the last two years, to which so many dear friends have contributed in an amazing variety of ways:
This amazing film was screened for the first time during the „Day of gratitude“ on May, 30th, 2015 at the Austrian Gut Aich Monastery. The monastery invited guests to Brother David’s 60th anniversary as a Benedictine monk. Almost 200 guests enjoyed a beautiful day with many events related to grateful living from music and arts to mindfulness practices and the film screening preceeded by Rilke poems recited by Brother David. The Holy Mass was celebrated at the end of the day, surprising Brother David with this creative gift. Pope Francis sent his blessings and congratulations. Thank you to all for such a joyful day!
Mirjam Luthe-Alves is a mother of three children. Her family currently lives in Southern California, Germany and Spain. Since 2012, she and many others have dedicated much love to creating a supportive environment for Dankbar leben. Mirjam has been working in development cooperation for years and is currently introducing the use of Mindfulness and Contemplative Practice in schools for young children.
