That moment, when your heart swells in open with thanks.
When a stranger sends you a smile and a whisper.
The unexpected brush of a hand against yours.
The warmth of the subway air after a walk through frozen city streets. A free coffee from the barista. When a taxi driver waves you forward and lets you ride for free. Waking up a few minutes before your alarm and snuggling under the covers for those unexpected moments while you watch the sun rise. Peeling back the curtains. Holding the door for an eighty-year old woman. Letting someone else take the elevator first. Pausing.
What does it mean to cultivate gratitude?
Realizing that the world around us is far larger than the space of our thoughts. Noticing how much there is to be thankful for. Finding thanks even within the darkest, hardest times. Holding yourself and your community to the highest integrity. Bringing warm soup to strangers. Baking bread for the homeless. Giving your birthday away. Being gentle with yourself.
What does it mean to open to grace?
Grace and gratitude are paramount to building a soft heart, an open mind, and a willing vulnerability.
In the midst of a hard world and in between the demands of your daily life, it can be easy to forget. To forget how important it is to remember the bigger picture. What it’s all about. Why you’re here. What we’re really doing.
It’s a whisper inside of your soul, a reminder.
This winter, during the holiday season, we’re opening a two-week micro workshop focused on cultivating gratitude and opening to grace.
It begins December 1.
Two weeks of joy-delivered bundles and stunning exercises (with pages for your own reflection) delivered to your mailbox.
A breath of fresh air.
A sigh of thanks, of gratitude for being here. Being you. Right now. Where you are. Exactly as you are.
PS: It’s a micro-course. Only 2 weeks. And only $75. And only $100 if you buy want two spots. My winter gift.
You’ll get to learn specific exercises and tools that some of my favorite people use to cultivate a sense of wonder, awe, and joy within their every day lives.
Give yourself the gift of practicing joy. Of building gratitude.Of stepping into small reasons to remember what the holidays are really all about.
What it’s really all about.
And in the spirit of gratitude: buy one, give one.
In the spirit of gratitude, you can sign up for the workshop for yourself, or you can buy one for you and gift one to a friend. If you want to buy an extra spot as a gift forward anonymously, write “GIFT SPACE” in the email line and I’ll save the spots for people who might be struggling this winter but would love to take the course.
Looking forward to sharing this with you.
With gratitude and thanks for you, exactly as you are.
