WHEN: November 9-11, 2018
WHERE: Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, Stockbridge, MA
Please join us for an extraordinary opportunity to learn about and deepen the practice of living gratefully – in person! We are delighted to announce a weekend workshop/retreat at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in the beautiful Berkshire hills of Massachusetts with Kristi Nelson and others from A Network for Grateful Living. The workshop will help you embrace and treasure the existing “great fullness” of your life, and enhance your capacity to live with a greater sense of presence, perspective, and possibility.
Based on the teachings of Br. David Steindl-Rast, Kristi will lead a weekend filled with inspiring presentations, self-reflective exercises, meditation, experiential practices, and discussion. The program will offer gratefulness as a proactive approach to every moment – even in challenging circumstances – that allows us to access a more unconditional experience of trust, joy, and belonging. Working alone and in small groups we will explore how to bring a grateful orientation to the terrain of our bodies, habits of mind, relationships, and the ways we inhabit our lives and the larger world.
Br. David says that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy. Please join us for this nourishing weekend of learning, connection, and self-care intended to leave you with a deeper reservoir of both.
