Description

For most of us, gratitude comes easy when things are going well. But putting it into practice when life throws you a curve ball is another story.

On Gratitude: The Essential Practice for Happiness and Fulfillment, cultural anthropologist and educator Angeles Arrien shows you how to cultivate the power of deep appreciation so that it becomes a way of life—simply and naturally.

Integrating the newest social science research with stories, prayers, insights, and practices from cultures and traditions spanning the world, Arrien gives you the time-tested wisdom to help you master the art of giving thanks, every day. Gratitude invites you to explore:

  • How to overcome habitual tendencies toward envy, comparison, and narcissism
  • The top 10 practices for remaining grateful, including keeping a gratitude journal, “remembering the bad to appreciate the good,” and regularly writing notes and letters of thanks
  • Naikan—the Japanese Buddhist practice of intensely meditating on your interconnections to develop a steady flow of gratitude in relationships
  • Indigenous teachings about using daydreams and wishes to create a spirit of healing and blessing

Recent studies have shown that a daily gratitude practice can significantly change your life, improving sleep, overall energy, and emotional well-being. With Gratitude, Angeles Arrien offers you an inspiring call to open your heart and experience the profound gifts that come when we fully embrace gratitude.

It's good. I recommend it.

However, there need to be new minds and hearts communicating, in new ways, the vitality of something like gratitude.

This is a good refresher, but, there is a tiredness to its tone and message.

In truth, gratitude is the throbbing essence of the realm beyond apirituality.

The realization of gratitude and its constant practice in our lives is capable of catapulting us into the realm of enlightened thought and behavior faster than the practice of anything else. Its dynamic nature leads the practioner to a depth of peace that is transformative.
