Spirituality of Gratitude (Virtual Retreat Day)

$20.00

Many believe that gratitude is the ultimate spiritual practice; it opens our heart to the presence of the divine within and all around us, opening to us a feeling of bliss and comfort.  Having the experience of the pandemic certainly shifted our priorities enough that we see what’s really most important and lasting.  In these trying times, I think we need gratitude more than ever so that we can name and appreciate all that’s joyful and growthful in our lives, i.e. God, family, friends, colleagues, health, etc.  Thanksgiving, as a holiday, calls us to remember there’s more to be thankful for than sad about, so, during this season, come and spend a day filled with gratitude and deepen your spirituality.

This will be done in two sessions.  The morning session will be from 10 to 11:30 AM and the afternoon session will be from 1:00 to 2:30 PM.  The Logistics:  There is a different ZOOM Link for each presentation and it will be emailed to you the day before the presentation.  If you are unfamiliar with ZOOM there are directions on the website under the Events/Retreat Tab:  https://fscaston.org/209234-2/
