A Day of Gratitude

In person in Bellevue

1-day retreat

“Thank you is the best prayer that anyone could say.” – Alice Walker

Begin your new year with this rich day-long retreat focusing on gratitude. What if each morning we could put on a set of glasses to help us view the details of our day through a lens of wonder, appreciation, and joy?

Science is now revealing that practicing gratitude is a skill that can be cultivated, and one that can have positive effects on our health, moods, and relationships. Studies have shown that gratitude can reduce anxiety and depression, offering the opportunity to approach life with new eyes.

Gratitude turns what we have into enough.

Please join us for a day of immersion in mindfulness practices, discussion, poetry, and teachings. We’ll invite the door of gratefulness in our hearts and minds to open wide.

I enjoyed my Day of Gratitude with Teresa and Richard so much! They created a wonderful event with the perfect mixture of meditation, mindful movement, visualization, and reflection. I stepped away feeling refreshed with tangible skills to cultivate gratitude in the moment and in my life as a whole! Not only that, but the sense of warmth and community created over even a short period of time was remarkable.
