We’ve all experienced difficulty and loss in our lives. While no one wishes for these kinds of challenges, we can be genuinely grateful for our capacity to gather the courage and resilience to carry on. Perhaps our most heroic act in the face of hardship is simply allowing our hearts to break and then transforming that pain into compassion, healing, and service. Poems are wise and timeless tools that can help us at every stage of our life’s journey, especially times of difficulty and loss, on our path back to gratitude, happiness and yes, even joy.
Please join the Board and Staff of A Network for Grateful Living, as well as new and old friends, at a warm and uplifting celebration of the power of poetry and gratefulness, with Emeritus Board member, Dale Biron. This afternoon presentation, with time for questions, is offered in honor of Br David Steindl-Rast and his lifetime of work to bring grateful living to the world. A light reception at 3 pm will precede the event, which starts promptly at 3:30 pm and will be filmed. We very much hope you can join us. Seating is limited - please register early.
