The Healing Potential of Gratitude
9:00 AM – 12:00 PM on Nov 17, 2012
Where: Ted Russell Hall, Room 151
Is it really more blessed to give than to receive? Or, does our well-being consist mainly of receiving? The accumulation of things (both material and non-material) seems to be innate to human nature, but is there a limit? Can too much “stuff” actually detract from a healthy sense of security, happiness, and well-being? A number of recent studies indicate that this is indeed true. The research shows that gratitude can nurture better health, improve mood, enhance relationships, strengthen life purpose, and boost overall life satisfaction. This seminar will teach participants how to develop gratitude as a life-style as well as an attitude.
