“Gratefulness reminds us that we are held in the world’s wide and gracious embrace, and we should consider and appreciate the gifts of this vast web of relatedness.”Kristi Nelson, Wake Up Grateful
We exist in a constellation of human relationships that is at once complex, life giving, and beautiful. Even in times of loneliness or despair, we remain bound to one another — held, even — by the smallest of daily acts, the realities of interdependence, and the mysteries of the heart. While this constellation of human connection always illuminates our lives, we experience it most powerfully when we turn toward it with attention and care.
The past year and a half has required us to find new ways to connect with one another in order to sustain our hearts, bodies, and minds. Living gratefully, we’re invited to tend and deepen the connections in our lives by asking and exploring: How can we fully attune ourselves to the life-giving relationships on which we depend? How do we nurture and heal these connections through curiosity, tenderness, and play? And in what ways can we authentically and creatively express our care for the relationships that tether us to one another and to life itself?
We invite you to join us for a weeklong journey that offers Grateful Living practices as a way to actively appreciate our relationships. Day 1 of the practice features a recording of a live, online session with Kristi Nelson, author of Wake Up Grateful: The Transformative Practice of Taking Nothing for Granted, which will set the stage for our explorations.
