WHY TAKE A WORKSHOP ON KINDNESS?
To meet like-minded people who believe in “the power of kindness.”
To cultivate your inner kindness and allow it to shine more brightly.
To learn how to be more kind to yourself.
To learn how to bring kindness to politics, social media, etc.
To learn how to help someone you know who might be struggling and needs kindness.
Included in our workshops will be exploration of methods to:
Set boundaries kindly.
Tell friends hard truths kindly.
Live a kind and courageous life!
Our kindness workshops are highly interactive and include both group activities and individual exercises. We’ll share ideas on what it means to be kind in today’s world. We’ll explore how to remove the barriers that keep our natural kindness from emerging. We’ll develop personal “kindness practices” and explore how to support each other in those practices. We’ll investigate the deeper layers of kindness that go beyond giving cookies and being polite, including ideas for “radical acts of kindness.”
And for those who are interested, we'll explore the creation of ongoing community kindness clubs, kindness action teams, and kindness flash mobs!
