Gratitude: A Writing and Meditation Workshop

“Gratitude is an emotion expressing appreciation for  what one has—as opposed to, say, a consumer-oriented emphasis  on what one wants or needs—and is currently receiving a great deal of attention  as a facet ofpositive psychology. Gratitude is what gets poured into the glass to make it half full. Studies show that gratitude not only can be deliberately cultivated but can increase levels of well-being and happiness among those who  do cultivate it.  In addition, grateful thinking—and especially expression of it to others—is associated with increased levels of energy, optimism, and empathy.” (Psychology Today. http://www.psychologytoday.com/basics/gratitude)

Gratitude: A Writing and Meditation Workshop uses meditation, gentle yoga poses and writing to guide participants to a deeper sense of gratitude in their daily lives. Participants will also learn tools for an ongoing gratitude practice that opens pathways to deeper appreciation for who and where they are in each moment.

Where: North Main Yoga, 10 W. Stone Avenue, Greenville, SC 29609

When: Friday, November 29th, 2-4pm

    Thanks, Belinda. I’ve been working on a series of writing, yoga and meditation workshops. I offered one centered on cultivating forgiveness last month, which was very rewarding, and built writing in to a yoga retreat to increase mindfulness and help participants take the benefits of the retreat back to their everyday lives. Hoping this will grow!
