We’re delighted that you’re interested in starting your own Grateful Gathering! Whether you envision convening a group of friends and family, organizing something where you work, or creating a public group that’s open to anyone interested, you’ve come to the right place. We look forward to answering any questions you may have about hosting and to helping you get started.

What Are Grateful Gatherings?

Over twenty years ago, our founder Br. David Steindl-Rast articulated a compelling vision of groups of people around the globe coming together to discover, practice, and share how to live gratefully. He imagined a network of individuals and communities connected by the shared hope to transform themselves, their communities, and the world through the practice of gratefulness. Grateful Gatherings are the manifestation of that vision.

Today, Grateful Gatherings around the globe foster rich and meaningful conversations exploring the transformative practice of grateful living. They take place in people’s homes, online, and in public spaces, providing community and connection, and empowering people to live meaningful lives of joy and belonging. When you join or host a Grateful Gathering, you become part of a growing, global community of grateful seekers and practitioners.

We Provide Inspirational Monthly Resources for Your Gathering

As a new host, you will receive a special 3-session collection of resources & suggested agendas that help orient and ground your group in the foundational principles and practices of Grateful Living. Once you’ve completed your first three monthly Grateful Gatherings, you will begin receiving the ongoing, themed resources that we provide to all Gatherings hosts. The ongoing monthly resources explore a wide range of Grateful Living topics such as Cultivating the SacredTrusting & Expressing CreativityHolding the Heart of Grief & LossGenerating Joy, and Awakening to Awe.
