Living in Gratitude Introduction (Queenstown)

During this retreat you’ll explore the deep and nourishing qualities of gratitude and joy of what is. Being happy is about acknowledging our gratitude for what we have at that moment, for what we have done, for every success we have achieved.

Our days are our life in miniature so how we spend each day determines our Lives. What, then, is more important than cultivating gratitude?

What we have today is what we once wanted before, but for some reason this never seems to be enough to find joy and contentment. We are constantly made to feel like we are lacking and always ‘wanting’ more, looking towards external factors to make us feel good within.

The good news is that gratitude is an emotion that can be cultivated, nourished and built on day by day, through focusing on things that bring us joy.

Living in Gratitude retreat will assist you in recognising that your life is a gift; each moment is given to you to be lived fully and with appreciation.

Who is this retreat for?

This retreat is great specially if you are focusing on the lack of something or you may have a feeling that you are missing something in your life believing you should be in a different place.

How often do you find the first thought at the start of your day being one around lack? As the alarm goes off, your first thought is of how tired you feel. How little energy you have for the day ahead, etc.

The programme that we developed for this retreat will help you to understand your emotions and the emotional state you live in. We will teach you how to create a state of emotion that supports the life you want to create and to shift from discontentment and lack to satisfaction and fulfilment.

Gratitude is good for your psychological well-being, your relationships, and even your physical health.
