On Campus Program

Gratitude Music, Poetry, and Spirituality from Ireland


Gratitude is a state of being—a physical, emotional, and spiritual invitation to inhabit a foundational ground of healing and empathy. Real gratitude acknowledges the seasonal conversation with reality, knowing that all things must pass and that holding onto a certain state of being is impossible. 

Join acclaimed Irish musicians and brothers, Mícheál and Owen Ó Súilleabháin for a special weekend event on the Kripalu campus over Thanksgiving weekend. Along with their mother, Nóirín Ní Riain—who will join virtually—they will immerse you in the inherited wisdom, insightful poetry, and astounding song of their unique family. Through traditional Irish traditional song, poetry, and spiritual practices, you will:

  • Embrace gratitude and let go of old visions you hold for yourself.
  • Release unrealistic promises of entitlement and insecurity. 
  • Appreciate what you already have and come to terms with your soul's stories.

A crossroads between our past, present, and future, gratitude is fierce yet merciful—and a  virtuosic doorway through which we can love each other more deeply.
