Living with uncertainty asks us to experience a level of vulnerability that can often feel disconcerting. When we invite ourselves to surrender to, rather than control, life, we can cultivate greater ease and trust in all that we cannot know. Grateful Living calls us to actively cultivate courageous trust in life as we open ourselves to the mystery and possibility held in every moment, allowing us to expand our capacity to feel more at home in the world.

May this curated collection of videos, practices, essays, poetry, and more deepen your curiosity and reveal a pathway towards surprise.
