Grateful Heart, Joyful Heart

Nov 18 - 20, 2016 Begins in 3 weeks
with James Baraz & Jane Baraz

Research shows that those who practice gratitude increase their feelings of joyfulness, enthusiasm, interest, attentiveness, and energy. Gratitude also activates other positive emotions such as kindness, compassion, generosity, awe, delight, love, and contentment. With gratitude we tend to see what is filling and fueling our lives rather than what is missing. You don’t have to wait for moments of gratitude to descend on you. You can consciously cultivate it through practice. When we pause to notice what we usually take for granted, a new world of possibilities opens up.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
