Cultivating Gratitude and Giving Expression to our Dreams

In this 4-week workshop, we will invite the Heart–Felt experience of appreciation and wonder into our creative process. As we invite our analytical mind to take a back seat, we will learn how the process of allowing and intending enables us to experience the flow of creativity.

RESEARCH SUPPORTS THESE 7 HEALTH BENEFITS FROM EXPERIENCING GRATITUDE:

• We become more helpful generous and compassionate

• Gratitude strengthens the immune system

• We become more forgiving

• We experience more pleasure and joy

• We sleep longer and feel refreshed upon wakening• We have more optimism

• We exercise more and take better care of our health!

Find pleasure and satisfaction in communicating what is meaningful to you

We will play, tell stories, do theater games, write stories, move our bodies to live music, speak our minds, share our passions, and support each other in our desire to live a more expressive life.
