With her background in cultural anthropology and comparative religion, Angeles Arrien is a teacher with a wide-ranging knowledge of many traditions and how they approach the subject of gratitude. But as Sounds True producer Mitchell Clute says, “The most important thing about Angeles is her own deep commitment to the practice of gratitude. Her kindness, patience, and generosity mark her as a teacher who walks her talk.” In this selection from her audio program Gratitude, Angeles shares how we can identify the states of ingratitude—including envy, comparison, and narcissism—that keep us from being present to the blessings in our lives, and what simple practices can help overcome them.
