Fall gives us an opportunity to go inside, to reflect, to harvest the light of the summer. It is also a perfect time to take stock of how we practice gratitude. A look at the Huichols, an indigenous people of Mexico, is a good place to start.
The Huichols give great emphasis to gratitude. In fact, they center their existence on it. They are thankful, first and foremost, for just being alive. Likewise, happiness is their starting point, not their end game.
