Begin with our book
Creating Delight: Connecting Gratitude, Humor, and Play for All Ages is a mildly subversive, highly practical and entertaining alternative to the gaggle of gratitude promoters who seem a bit too serious about adding joy to your life. While the authors are in absolute agreement with the inspiring experts who tout the importance of gratitude, this book builds on their work by connecting it with humor and play. It broadens the possibilities, offers a lighthearted attitude, and provides dozens of specific ideas for sharing the pleasures of being alive.
Whether you serve students/children, older adults, or your family and friends, use this book as a guide to illustrate concrete ways you can help them find delight.
Delight has connotations of not only happiness, but unexpected pleasure.

Are you interested in a workshop?
All three of us offer workshops and webinars on a variety of topics. Kathy and Bron are the presenters for Creating Delight by Connecting Gratitude, Humor, and Play. Here’s some basic information:
We see a clear difference between environment and atmosphere. When someone walks into your classroom, residential care community, or home, the environment may not say
“Wow!” and getting to wow may require a big budget. But a beautiful physical environment doesn’t guarantee a welcoming atmosphere, and fortunately, creating an atmospheric wow requires only an abundant attitude budget.

In this inter-active 3.5 hour workshop, we will:
- Provide research-based evidence of the positive physical and mental effects of gratitude, humor and play and illustrate how they are intertwined;
- Teach participants how to give and receive compliments to set the stage for expressing gratitude, and creating an inviting atmosphere;
- Give examples of at least 10 ways to incorporate gratitude, humor, and play rituals into daily life; and
- Give participants hands-on experience in making three variations of a gratitude “tree.”
They will return to their communities with easy and practical ways to change and recharge the atmosphere in their environments and with it, the lives of those they serve.
