Our Mission Statement
We empower people to live meaningful lives through the transformative practice of grateful living.
Our organization was founded in 1969 by Brother David Steindl-Rast, OSB, together with a small group of friends and supporters. Brother David is known as the “grandfather of gratitude” and is one of the most important figures in the modern interfaith dialogue movement. Having Brother David at the heart of our genesis story and being stewards of his life’s work is a gift. His inclusive and transformative teachings are fundamental to what we offer the world.
