“The greatest thing is to give thanks for everything. He who has learned this knows what it means to live. He has penetrated the whole mystery of life: giving thanks for everything.” ~Sir Albert Schweitzer
Diana Butler Bass is a teacher and writer who has made it her business to help usher in the interspiritual age – a time of increased awareness of the relatedness of all life and how we are indeed called to build a beloved community together. In this new book, Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks, she teaches us that gratitude is a spiritual practice that can indeed be transformative for our personal lives, our work and our communities. With honest stories and heartrending examples from history and her own life, Bass reclaims gratitude as a path to greater connection with God, with others, with the world and with our own souls.
Please join Executive Director, Patty Speier as she leads us through a discussion of the essential practice of gratitude and what it can mean for our lives and for the healing of our institutions.
