Throughout cultures and traditions, gratitude plays an important role in ritual, mindset and outlook. In the face of grief, this concept can seem incomprehensible. Gratitude is more than a feeling though - it is made up of actions that can transform our mindset and bring light into the darkest days of our grief.
Presented by the TAPS Institute for Hope and Healing®, this TAPS Talk with Erin Jacobson, explores the importance of gratitude and methods to incorporate it within our daily lives.
