Each day we, at A Network for Grateful Living, directly experience the transformative power of grateful living. Through our personal orientations toward living gratefully, reading current scientific research, learning from the wisdom traditions, as well as through the bountiful stories and testimonials we receive and see on this site, we understand that cultivating gratitude and gratefulness can transform lives, heal relationships and…change our world. As such, we are committed to sharing this way of being as fully and effectively as we can.

Most of our eCourses are now on-demand so that materials can be reviewed at your leisure and all our eCourses are priced to be accessible to all.

We are delighted to more fully acquaint you with Learn with Gratefulness. Our learning platform allows us to connect you with wise guides to help deepen, expand, and support your practice of grateful living. Most eCourses are now on-demand so that materials can be reviewed at your leisure and all of our eCourses are priced to be accessible to all.

If you and/or someone you know, would welcome understanding more about the transformative power of sufficiencywhat it means to live wholeheartedly, or how poetry supports us in good times and bad, then please explore our offerings below.

And, if you are an educator, we recognize that these are tense and challenging times. The safety of our kids and a classroom culture that uplifts and strengthens what is going right is essential. Gratitude has a role to play in building resilience and reducing stress. Our upcoming eCourse, Gratitude: A Way of Teaching, offers a unique opportunity to bring gratitude into the classroom to benefit students and teachers alike.

We currently have the following eCourses available with more in the works for the coming year. We hope you can join us…

A Fierce & Enduring Gratitude: How Poetry Supports Us in Good Times & Bad with Dale Biron
We’ve all experienced difficulties and losses in our lives and of course, no one would ever wish for these challenges, yet we can be genuinely grateful for our capacity to gather the courage and strength needed to carry on with skill and dignity. In this eight-part eCourse, we explore poems as wise and timeless tools that can help us at every stage of our life’s journey, especially those times of difficulty and loss, on our path back to gratitude, happiness and yes, even joy. *$20, on-demand course

Awakening to Gratefulness with Br. David Steindl-Rast
“What is gratitude?”, “How do we do gratefulness?”, and “Why?” — Using poetry, stories and clear descriptions, Br. David Steindl-Rast, takes us on a deep and joyous dive into the practice of grateful living. These inspired teachings were recorded on video in 2011 when Br. David offered a series of talks to a group of 85 people who cruised with him through Alaska’s Inside Passage. Each of the 8 sessions includes a video (or two!) along with questions for contemplation and journaling. *$10, on-demand course

Gratefulness: Life As A Wholehearted Journey with David Whyte, with appearances by Br. David Steindl-Rast
In this six-part eCourse, we will traverse the subtle terrain of “wholeheartedness” as both “antidote to exhaustion” and as what becomes available when we live with immediacy. We will explore what it means to move through life as a “pilgrim” — letting go of what no longer serves us, taking nothing for granted, and being willing to show our gratefulness for our particular gifts by allowing them full expression in the world. *$20, on-demand course

The Transformative Power of Sufficiency & Gratefulness with Lynne Twist & Br. David Steindl-Rast
In this on-demand program, we will explore the power of focusing awareness on the gifts, opportunities, and commitments in our lives. Sufficiency and gratefulness help us recognize that we may not need new goals or big changes in order to be deeply happy. Instead, re-orienting to the “currencies” and currents of our lives may hold the key. Learn with two of the world’s great thought-leaders as they share their wisdom. *$20, on-demand course
