A Gift of Gratitude

Originally created as an ‘alchemical wisdom” montage featuring the Godfather of the Gratitude Movement, Brother David Steindl-Rast speaking over a customized musical soundtrack, in a blend created by Wisdom of the World Founder, Composer/Producer Gary Malkin. This touching audio track was given to world class cinematographer, Louie Schwartzberg to set to his astonishingly beautiful visual artistry.

Presented unassumingly during a SF TEDX talk. This short film became a viral internet sensation. Reaching more than 7 million people worldwide, and still growing. This genre was first explored in the globally acclaimed palliative care resource, Graceful Passages, with music composed by Malkin and produced by Malkin with Michael Stillwater.

Many people experience this short film as a morning alignment tool. Others as a reminder of what matters most during life challenges. However you use it, it’s great to remember that the greatest state of consciousness we humans can ever be in is a state of gratitude. When that happens, we are overflowing with compassion and a willingness to serve the greater good.
