Can gratitude be more than just a platitude? Our guest today argues: yes.

DaRa Williams is a longtime practitioner and teacher of meditation. She is one of the guiding teachers at Insight Meditation Society, a graduate of the Spirit Rock Insight Meditation Society Teacher Training Program, and also has a clinical mental health private practice in Manhattan. DaRa also says, only semi-facetiously, that she believes gratitude can be considered the fifth Brahma Vihara.

In this conversation we talk about:

  • How to start knitting gratitude into your everyday life
  • Whether gratitude is possible when everything sucks
  • How to avoid spiritual bypass
  • The opportunity that suffering brings for happiness
  • How to take our suffering less personally
  • The power of reminding yourself that you are nature
  • And our unconscious fascination with creating difficulty
