10 WAYS TO CULTIVATE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

This is the season of Thanksgiving and of giving thanks for the bountiful gifts and vast array of life’s blessings we receive throughout the year. This important practice of giving thanks is a practice that could reap much greater benefit by being extended out over the year. This gift of gratitude is a free gift that we can share with ourselves and others.

    GRANDMOTHER MAPLE Honor the Grandmother Maple with this meditative, arboreal ceremony. Named for its age and wisdom, it transmits the forest’s knowledge to newly sprouted saplings and vibrates with the essences that bind our ecosystem. Dayla Robinson’s fireside experience explores the loving and peaceful connections between people and trees. Recline to Dayla’s music with a mug of maple syrup-infused tea and make intentions and prayer ties to grace the branches of this maternal, magnificent maple. $

    Greylock Photography Excursion Join our Miraval photography specialist, Greg Cherin, for a scenic drive to the highest elevation in Massachusetts: the peak of Mt. Greylock. From the summit, sweeping panoramic views that extend into New York, Vermont, and the eastern part of Massachusetts presents limitless photo opportunities. Slow down, take in the sights and let Greg offer tips and tricks for capturing beautiful photos.

    THE WISDOM OF OWLS Ancient symbols of stillness, focus, and inner knowing, owls have much to teach us. In October, days are shorter and colder. Nature goes within, to the quiet internal time of the year. Owls are with us through this time. They do not migrate; they adapt to the season, hunting alone in the stillness of the night. Owl teaches us that if we are willing to look inside and brave our “flight” through the darkness, we will emerge with rewards from our deepest selves.

    FORGE A FIRE Learn how to light a fire without matches as we reach back to our roots and honor the role that fire has played in sustaining life and sparking joy. This centuries-old skill reconnects us to nature and the land around us. Work together to prepare and ignite a fire using traditional methods. From the flicker of kindling to a crackling fire, you can enjoy the results of your collective effort with a fireside beverage from The Roost. Create a circle of camaraderie and cooperation as we practice this ancient act of creation. $

Reward yourself with breathtaking views of the Berkshire foliage and a gourmet picnic lunch. $ Seasonally offered

    Gratitude Hike in Bullard WoodsThis time of year encourages us to stop and reflect upon the changes around and within us. Nature displays a graceful transition towards winter when we slow down enough to notice it. Experience a light hike through Bullard Woods, with a pause to offer gratitude through the practice of Yoga and Intention setting.
