The Gratitude Workshop
Gratitude is the key to happiness, faith, peace of mind, and successful relationships. This practical, interactive 3 ½ hour workshop uses role-playing and innovative exercises so that you actually acquire the skill of gratitude.
The first half of the workshop trains you to notice and be grateful for EVERYTHING—from your eyelids to the drop-down table in an airplane, from the garbage collectors to the teacher who first taught you how to read. As you learn to fill your day with gratitude, the joy level in the room zooms up.
The second half of the workshop teaches a four-step method for responding to tribulations with gratitude instead of complaints. Whether confronted with a minor irritation or a major cataclysm, complaining only exacerbates our problems, while gratitude opens the way to happiness—and often divine deliverance!
“I had the zechus to take your workshop last Wednesday morning. Your workshop made an incredible impression on me. It was quite frankly, the best workshop I have ever been to. You were clear, stayed focused and gave us practical tools for implementation. I am very grateful.”

Imagine being offered more hours of sleep, increased motivation to exercise, higher levels of optimism, fewer reports of depression and stress, more progress toward personal goals, and fewer physical symptoms such as pain—all for the price of as little as 10-15 minutes each day. Too good to be true?
Not so, say a growing number of professionals and researchers in the field of Positive Psychology… . The results of numerous studies are in and point to one conclusion, say Positive Psychology gurus across the country: The simple act of gratitude, if practiced daily, can produce numerous positive health and emotional benefits.
Religion and philosophers have long praised the virtue and benefits of gratitude, but now psychology has lent it scientific credence. In several control group studies involving subjects as diverse as college students, heart attack survivors, people dealing with postpolio syndrome, middle school students, and 9/11 survivors, results all point to the conclusion that the regular practice of gratitude produces numerous positive health and emotional benefits.
