Cultivating an Attitude of Gratitude: Moving beyond the Platitudes

Gratitude is often used as a buzzword in pop-culture, but it is more than just a cliché. A growing body of research indicates there are significant benefits to cultivating this attitude. Dr. Kabat-Zinn, a leading researcher and teacher of mindfulness, has added it to the foundations of mindfulness attitudes list. In this engaging workshop, gratitude will be explored through creative activities and participants will acquire practices that can be used in both their personal and professional lives. What does it mean to really practice gratitude? This workshop will explore this question and go beyond the platitudes to help participants find their own authentic attitude of gratitude.
