The Science of Gratitude
September 10–12, 2021
Discover the life-changing practice of cultivating gratitude. Scientific research is proving that a daily gratitude practice can benefit our health, relationships, work, and sleep. A consistent gratitude practice releases stress and boosts our immune system, while also connecting us to a deeper part of ourselves. During this retreat, the study of gratitude will be rooted in ancient wisdom and cutting edge science. Through meditation, discussion, writing, practices of “Being Thankful,” and gentle movement and exercise, you will have an opportunity to apply this wisdom and knowledge for emotional and spiritual growth. You will leave this weekend with the gift of gratitude, which will support, deepen, and expand all areas of your life, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
