hoUSton grateful
November 01, 2017 - November 30, 2017

We know that Houston is strong! Our collective response to Hurricane Harvey proved it, yet again. The holiday season can be a big whirlwind of stress and emotion and consumption. They can also become what they were originally intended to be: holy days, a time of reflection and intentional living. By taking the time each day to take stock of all that we are grateful for, large and small, even during trying times, we imbue our days with a sense of the sacred. When we adopt an attitude of gratitude as our baseline, love, compassion, kindness and service easily follow as a way of being in the world.

Join your YogaOne community in 5 weeks of mindfully and intentionally cultivating gratitude, kindness, acknowledgment and service. Let us invest in the strength that comes from knowing that we have so much to be thankful for, so much richness and beauty in our lives. Let us stand for mindfulness and intentional living in this season. Together, let’s cultivate our beautifully diverse and resilient city as #HoUStonGrateful.

Each week we will focus on a particular aspect of gratitude and appreciative living, inviting ourselves to be in the looking for what’s beautiful here, now. By month’s end, we’ll have a newfound appreciation for what we already have and will open up to new ways of seeing the world with open, wondrous eyes and being in the world from a place of appreciation and service.
