The Art of Gratefulness

Dec 19 - 21 Begins in 3 weeks
with Patricia Carlson

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.



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


Make a difference and leave a legacy by becoming a Friend of Esalen.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
