Patricia Campbell Carlson
has worked closely with Br. David Steindl-Rast, OSB, since 2001. She was executive director of A Network for Grateful Living (ANG*L) from 2005-2013, and before that, she helped develop Gratefulness.org.
What does it mean to be grateful through the ups and downs of life? How can we appreciate the gift of each day without minimizing the challenges that face us personally and as a global community? This workshop, rooted in the teachings of Brother David Steindl-Rast, a Benedictine monk who has taught at Esalen for decades, addresses these questions. Through the mediums of music, movement, poetry, conversation, and collage, we discover together how gratefulness applies to our losses, everyday lives, and relationships.
