Margaret Alvarez’s The Art of Gratitude Journal class was life changing for me. I re-discovered my artistic  creativity which had been dormant in my professional life and in the day to day challenges of caring for my husband through his long Alzheimer’s journey and the subsequent grief of his death. 
Margaret Alvarez is competent, joyful, passionate and patient. I thoroughly enjoyed the ten week online “The Art of Gratitude” journal class she taught. When I look back at all of the techniques I learned and how confident I feel in continuing to experiment, I’m amazed….and grateful. I know this is a practice I will continue. I have grown in my ability to express gratitude in a fuller way and I find that the practice itself expands my gratitude. 
Offering the class via Zoom during the pandemic had its technological challenges, but Margaret maintained grace under pressure through it all. The members of our class were able to get to know one another and support our growth in gratitude and artistic expression. 
I recommend this class with enthusiasm and absolutely no reservations. ENJOY!
