Hosting a Gratefulness Gathering may be a good fit for you if you answer yes to the following:

  • I am interested in exploring grateful living as an orientation to life and am committed to rich conversations that open minds and hearts to the power of gratefulness.
  • I am aligned with A Network for Grateful Living’s mission, vision, and values.
  • I am able to host one Gratefulness Gathering per month. Generally, hosts can expect to spend between two and four hours each month coordinating, in addition to the time each meeting will take. We encourage prospective hosts to clearly and realistically consider whether they have space for this commitment in a way that will allow them to show up fully and with joy.
  • I am willing to fulfill the role of a host, which includes planning (scheduling a venue, promoting the Gratefulness Gathering, collecting resources), facilitating meetings, and managing communication between meetings with participants and A Network for Grateful Living.
  • I understand that showing up authentically with my personal experience of grateful living is my primary role as host. You do not need to be an expert in grateful living or an expert facilitator. Your role as host is not to actively present or teach, but rather to be present, thoughtful, and self-aware; to listen actively; and to hold space for your experience and those of others.
  • I understand that I’m joining a community of people with diverse backgrounds and diverse experiences of gratefulness. I understand that it is part of my responsibility as host to support safe, inclusive space for all as outlined in A Network for Grateful Living’s Community Engagement Guidelines.
