Gratitude: a spiritual practice available to everyone!
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity...it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." ~Melody Beattie
The practice of gratitude is very much a spiritual practice. In short, it is a paradigm shift and offers us a new way of living that can help free us from feeling captive by repetitive thought patterns and past evens. Combined with mindfulness and the physical practice of yoga, gratitude can help release unconscious holding patterns in the body. Drawing on my many years of having a dedicated gratitude practice, and sharing that with others, I incorporate gratitude into most everything I do, including yoga therapy and teaching yoga.
Gratitude coaching sessions
This practice is for anyone looking to develop or deepen a spiritual practice with gratitude as a foundation. I incorporate tools and skills I have learned and developed through a 15+ years gratitude practice. Gratitude, as a practice, has the ability to fundamentally reorient our perspective on life and shift how we show up in the world. It is a broad-based spiritual practice that can truly become embodied and transformative. This beautiful practice can both help soften your day-to-day experience in the world while simultaneously strengthening your ability to be a positive force in the world.
Gratitude coaching sessions are 50 minutes long and can be done in person or via Skype. These sessions are designed to support you wherever you are in your life and provide practices that will sustain your efforts and provide meaningful impacts in various aspects of your life. As appropriate (and with your interest), I also incorporate various yogic philosophies and practices to integrate with our gratitude-focused work. This work is deeply healing; and it can change how you relate to both yourself and others. I encourage you to give it a try!
Join the Gratitude Community!
In the spirit of sharing gratitude with as many people as possible and based on the expressed desires of people connected online wanting to have a safe place to practice gratitude, I established a private gratitude Facebook group entitled 365 Days of Gratitude (please contact me if you’d like to be added to this group – all are welcome!). In this group people from around the country and beyond share gratitudes and inspire others with their practice and subsequent insights.
