When we experience our own desire for transformation, we are feeling the universe evolving through us.
~ Barbara Marx Hubbard

Do you wonder what it means to live with greater aliveness? Or how our inner wellbeing supports the wellbeing of the world around us? Can you sense the transformative power of sufficiency but would like to understand how to cultivate it in your life? Are you curious about how poetry can be a supportive and trustworthy gratefulness practice? Or are you interested in bringing greater wholeheartedness to the journey of your life?

These questions (and more) are explored in our on-demand offerings at learn.gratefulness.org. The transformative eCourses found here can be taken at your convenience and are supremely affordable! Join us in a deeper exploration of the myriad ways gratefulness supports our wellbeing, transformation, and evolution!

We currently offer the following eCourses:

Reclaiming Aliveness: How Great Fullness Can Transform Our World
featuring conversation with Br. David Steindl-Rast and Christian Plebst
Discover how our innate, inner capacities for wellbeing open us up to what it means to be fully alive. In this four-session eCourse, we explore how mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and grateful living increase our capacity for joy, love, and wholeheartedness. When we allow these qualities to emerge, we create space for individual and collective transformation at a time when the world is calling for wholeness. *$20

A Fierce and Enduring Gratitude: How Poetry Supports Us In Good Times and Bad
with Dale Biron
We’ve all experienced difficulties and losses in our lives. From health challenges to losing friends and loved ones. From career and business setbacks to divorces. Perhaps our most heroic act in the face of such loss is simply allowing our hearts to break and then transforming that pain into compassion, healing, and finally service. In this five-session eCourse, we explore poems as wise and timeless tools that can support us on our path back to gratitude, happiness, and yes, even joy. *$20

Gratefulness: Life As A Wholehearted Journey
with David Whyte, and appearances by Br. David Steindl-Rast
In this six-session eCourse, we traverse the subtle terrain of “wholeheartedness” as both “antidote to exhaustion” and as what becomes available when we live with immediacy. We 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

Gratitude: A Way of Teaching
with Owen Griffith
This five-session eCourse includes practical, research-based activities and a gratitude curriculum. Owen Griffith’s book, Gratitude: A Way of Teaching, offers structure to help guide the course as we create opportunities for educators to explore gratitude as a way to improve class culture, academic and social success for students, and resilience and satisfaction in students and educators alike. The safety of our kids as well as 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. *$20

The Transformative Power of Sufficiency & Gratefulness
with Lynne Twist & Br. David Steindl-Rast
In this six-session 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

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 eights sessions includes a video (or two!) along with questions for contemplation and journaling. *$10
