Welcome! 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 group that’s open to anyone interested, you’ve come to the right place. We hope that you’ll be inspired by the information below, and we look forward to answering any questions you may have about hosting — and to helping you get started.

What Are Grateful Gatherings?
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 gratefulness. Today, there are Grateful Gatherings across the United States and in ten countries. When you host a Grateful Gathering, you become part of a growing, global constellation 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.
