The Significance of Gratitude


End of Life Discussion Group: The Significance of Gratitude 

Presenter: Patrick Gibbons

Saturday, January 21 | 10am – 1pm | Online

$20 members/ $25 non-members


Research has shown that gratitude has a positive effect on how we approach the end of life . It has also shown how gratitude has a positive effect on how we live in the present moment. This presentation and discussion will focus on some of these findings.


We will explore the nature of gratitude, provide examples from patient testimonies about its importance, and provide recommendations for cultivating and nourishing gratitude in one’s life.


Feedback from participants of Patrick's previous programs:


"I was so glad to have the space created by this memorial/ remembrance service. Experiencing loss during this time of increased isolation due to the pandemic has further complicated already painful circumstances. Patrick Gibbon's skill in facilitating was evident, even in a virtual format; I felt the group was inclusive, calm, accepting, and supportive. The opportunity to grieve with others, even remotely, is something that I've been sorely missing."

"Patrick Gibbons’ “Virtual Remembrance Service” was food for the soul.  Sharing our loss/es with attendees from this pandemic was the beginning of the healing process for many of us.  I highly recommend this program along with all of Patrick’s programs.  His humility, knowledge of material, and gentle and loving demeanor is a  blessing in its own right.  Thank you, Shadybrook, for bringing Patrick to us. " -D.K.
