A Fierce And Enduring Gratitude… How Poetry Supports The Happiness and Joy of Grateful Living In Good Times and Bad
February 22, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
We’ve all experienced difficulties and losses in our lives. From career and business setbacks to divorces and family breakdowns. From health challenges to losing friends and loved ones. Perhaps our most heroic act in the face of such loss is simply allowing our hearts to break and then transforming that pain into compassion, healing and finally service. Of course, no one would ever wish for these kinds of challenges, and yet we can be genuinely grateful for our capacity to gather the courage and strength needed to carry on with skill and dignity. Poems are wise and timeless tools that can help us at every stage of our life’s journey, especially those times of difficulty and loss on our path back to gratitude, happiness and yes, even joy.
