Introductions with Gratitude 

from chapter 6 of Coming Back to Life by Joanna Macy and Molly Brown; second edition, published 2014. Please acknowledge the source when you use any of these practices.


Time: 1-2 minutes per person


Group introductions are a good place to bring in gratitude. Perhaps writing the list up where everyone can see it, invite people to briefly share the following:

  1. Their name and where they are from
  2. One thing they want us to know about them
  3. One thing they love about being alive in Earth (of the many things they love, choose just one)
