Grateful Living (aka A Network for Grateful Living) is a U.S.-based, global nonprofit organization serving a growing movement of individuals and communities who want to engage with life more gratefully. Through a wide range of offerings, our mission includes supporting people to see the wonder and opportunity in every moment and to act boldly with love, generosity, and respect towards ourselves, one another, and the Earth. Our commitment is for the gifts of Grateful Living to be available to people from all walks of life, and we strive to keep all that we do welcoming, inclusive, and accessible to diverse communities. We believe in the exponential impact of Grateful Living, so we create opportunities for people to gather and learn together, both online and in person whenever possible. The world needs gratefulness now more than ever—and we are here to support the groundswell.
Grateful Living is a global nonprofit organization offering online and community-based educational programs and practices. Our offerings guide a commitment to the practice of Grateful Living and catalyze the transformative power of personal and societal responsibility.
We hold Grateful Living as an engaged mindfulness practice, grounded in both wisdom and science, which supports our ability to see the wonder and opportunity in every moment, and motivates us to act boldly with love, generosity, and respect towards one another, ourselves, and the Earth.

A peaceful, thriving, and sustainable world — held as sacred by all, for all.
