A Day of Gratitude at beautiful St. Mary-on-the-Lake's
Peace and Spirituality Center
What if each morning we could put on a set of glasses to help us view the details of our day more often through a lens of wonder?
Science is now revealing that practicing gratitude is a skill that can have positive effects on our health, moods and relationships. Put simply, it offers us the opportunity to approach life with new eyes.
Please join us for a day of immersion in mindfulness practices, discussion, poetry and teachings which will invite the door of gratefulness in our hearts and minds to open wide.
Location: St. Mary-on-the-Lake's Peace & Spirituality Center,
