Details

What would happen if you made gratitude your focal point for one full year? With Living in Gratitude, Angeles Arrien invites you to find out. Integrating the latest teachings from social science with stories, prayers, and practices from cultures and traditions spanning the globe, she presents a 12-month plan for making gratitude your foundation for daily living.

Opening with themes such as “Beginning Anew” and “The Power of Equanimity” and progressing to “Letting Be and Letting Go,” “The Mystic Heart,” and more, readers will steep themselves in “the parent of all virtues,” exploring:

  • How to overcome habitual tendencies toward envy, comparison, and narcissism
  • Blessings, learnings, mercies, and protections—the four portals to the grateful heart, and how to cultivate these key entryways in our work, relationships, health, finances, and personal growth
  • Journaling and reflection exercises, perennial and indigenous wisdoms, and universal practices for every season and situation

“The practice of gratitude bestows many benefits,” writes Angeles Arrien. “Anger, arrogance, and jealousy melt in its embrace. Fear and defensiveness dissolve. Gratitude diminishes barriers to love and evokes happiness, keeping alive what has meaning for us.” Living in Gratitude is a dependable resource for making this cherished virtue your guiding light along life’s journey.

Angeles Arrien, (deceased April 24, 2014) is a unique advocate for the healing of the planet. She will be missed by tens of thousands. She has bridged spiritual with cross-cultural (perennial) wisdom. I was captivated by her audio tapes, especially The Second Half of Life. Living in Gratitude exemplifies her rigorous application of this most essential spiritual quality (Posted on July 10, 2014)

Review for Living in Gratitude Review by sharon Crump

Rating

Living with Gratitude is a book that has changed my life. I have Lou Gehrig Disease and living in Gratitude is the way I keep myself focused on the good things of life. I want to be grateful for simple things like being able to walk a little, being able to speak a little, being able to eat a little...rather than be bitter about losing these simple gifts of life that so many take for granted. I am living in the present moment joyfully through gratitude! (Posted on December 10, 2011)
