A Life Well Spent – Gratitude, Joy and Kindness

Grateful people are happy people!  We can often be so focused on what we don’t have, we forget to appreciate and feel grateful for what we already have and the enormous amount of benefit we receive from others.

Discover for yourself the uplifting experience of contentment, joy and positive energy that comes from meditating on gratitude. Through simple meditations we can reflect on the truth of our situation, take the time to fully appreciate our life and wish to use it to its full potential.

By living with an awareness of the kindness of others, we can maintain a warm heart and a feeling of being close to everyone.  This special way of looking at the world brings joy and creates the foundation for stable and loving relationships.

In this way through making gratitude part of each day we can live a life of genuine happiness, fulfilment and inner purpose.


Steve Cansdale has been studying and teaching Buddhist meditation for many years and presents the teachings in a very practical way.

Kelsang Drolkar is a joyful and dedicated student. She combines her diverse personal experience with practical insight and a warm heart in all the classes she teaches.
