A Fierce & Enduring Gratitude: How Poetry Supports Us in Good Times & Bad with Dale Biron
We’ve all experienced difficulties and losses in our lives and of course, no one would ever wish for these challenges, yet we can be genuinely grateful for our capacity to gather the courage and strength needed to carry on with skill and dignity. In this eight-part eCourse, we explore poems as wise and timeless tools that can help us at every stage of our life’s journey, especially those times of difficulty and loss, on our path back to gratitude, happiness and yes, even joy.

Awakening to Gratefulness with Br. David Steindl-Rast
“What is gratitude?”, “How do we do gratefulness?”, and “Why?” — Using poetry, stories and clear descriptions, Br. David Steindl-Rast, takes us on a deep and joyous dive into the practice of grateful living. These inspired teachings were recorded on video in 2011 when Br. David offered a series of talks to a group of 85 people who cruised with him through Alaska’s Inside Passage. Each of the 8 sessions includes a video (or two!) along with questions for contemplation and journaling.

Gratitude: A Way of Teaching with Owen Griffith
This five-session eCourse includes practical, research-based activities and a new gratitude curriculum shared by educator and author, Owen Griffith. Owen’s book, Gratitude: A Way of Teaching, offers structure to help guide the course as we create opportunities for educators to explore gratitude as a way to improve class culture; academic and social success for students; and resilience and satisfaction in students and educators alike.
*Requires purchase of book, Gratitude: A Way of Teaching.

Gratefulness: Life As A Wholehearted Journey with David Whyte, appearances by Br. David Steindl-Rast
In this six-part eCourse, we will traverse the subtle terrain of “wholeheartedness” as both “antidote to exhaustion” and as what becomes available when we live with immediacy. We will explore what it means to move through life as a “pilgrim” — letting go of what no longer serves us, taking nothing for granted, and being willing to show our gratefulness for our particular gifts by allowing them full expression in the world.

Reclaiming Aliveness: How Great Fullness Can Transform our World with Christian Plebst & Br. David Steindl-Rast
In this four-session eCourse, discover how our innate, inner capacities for wellbeing open us up to what it means to be fully alive. Stepping into our aliveness, we honor the opportunity to listen and to notice that which might be beckoning. We will explore how  mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and grateful living increase our capacity for joy, love, compassion, and wholeheartedness. When we allow these qualities to emerge, we create space for individual and collective transformation at a time when the world is calling for wholeness. 

The Transformative Power of Sufficiency & Gratefulness with Lynne Twist & Br. David Steindl-Rast
In this on-demand program, we will explore the power of focusing awareness on the gifts, opportunities, and commitments in our lives. Sufficiency and gratefulness help us recognize that we may not need new goals or big changes in order to be deeply happy. Instead, re-orienting to the “currencies” and currents of our lives may hold the key. Learn with two of the world’s great thought-leaders as they share their wisdom.

All of our eCourses are available for free. Donations over $10/$20 enable us to continue making these eCourses, and future offerings, available at no/reduced cost for people for whom the suggested amount is prohibitive. All donations are tax-deductible and deeply appreciated.
