livingingratitudebyangelesarrienI am excited to be highlighting Angeles Arrien’s book, Living in Gratitude a Journey That Will Change Your Life, in ‘Feature Posts’ on the Welcome Page each month of 2013.  Riane Eisler, author of The Chalice and the Blade, Sacred Pleasure, and the Real Wealth of Nations, writes “In Living in Gratitude, Angeles Arrien once again gives us a treasury of wisdom and practical tools.  Written with her trademark flair and love, this is a transformative book of month-by-month reflections and practices that effectively shows us how to integrate the healing of gratitude into every day of our lives.” The author writes there are four Universal Portals to Gratitude:  Blessings, Learnings, Mercies and Protections.  These portals will be explored as each monthly chapter presents a theme that examines universal, cross-cultural, and perennial wisdoms related to the cultivation of gratitude.  Thank you, Angeles Arrien for being such a gifted teacher.
