Feedback form is now closed.
This session is for caregivers and healers, defined broadly as anyone who has the intention of helping others in the wellness arena and makes an effort to do so (e.g. health care workers, teachers, massage therapists, body workers, mindful movement or yoga instructors).

We invite you into an engaging concoction of sharing, listening, and experiential learning on the power of gratitude for personal wellness and for deepening connection with Self, Life, and Community. Participants are likely to come away with an enhanced awareness of the science of gratitude and an embodied understanding of how gratitude may help them reinvigorate their resiliency, love, and faith in a world that is also full of pain and suffering.

This workshop is highly participatory and may include meditation, mindful listening with a partner and gratitude writing practices.

As a Russian immigrant to the United States with Ukrainian roots, Polina is grateful for the opportunity to be in Charlottesville at this time. In this session, she will share from personal experience why she persists to cultivate lightness and optimism despite the heaviness and uncertainty that is present. And bowing deeply to the collective wisdom in the group, the session will hold space for participants to share their experiences with gratitude, what holds us back from cultivating gratitude, and how we may most seamlessly integrate this wisdom into our daily lives. As a close to the session, participants will be gifted the opportunity to write a card for their future selves as a way to capture and carry forth the blessings of the day.
