“On a beautiful sunlit evening two longtime friends met up to continue a conversation that has spanned decades,” says Kate Olson in the beginning of the inspiring new film, “The Practice of Grateful Living.” The conversation between Br. David Steindl-Rast and Jack Kornfield focuses on grateful living practice and how we can incorporate it into our daily lives via a simple “Stop! Look! Go!” process. This intimate conversation was filmed by a topnotch crew (a 60 Minutes favorite) before a small audience in June 2013.
