“What a beautiful session this has been with so many insights opening new ways of looking at life! Br. David’s definition of hope, in its deepest spiritual sense, expanded my understanding of a word and concept that has been pretty superficial…”eCourse participant
This six-week program explores 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.
- How can experiencing sufficiency and contentment – rather than judgment and aspiration – become an impetus for transformation in our lives?
- What are are some of the ways to distinguish possibility, hope, and faith?
- How might love and gratitude help to generate needed changes in our world?
- What are the gifts and opportunities we tend to take for granted?
- How can cultivating daily practices focused on appreciating “enough” and “what already is” in our lives help to bring forth joy?
- What is real abundance, and how can we discover and nurture it?
