Radical Kindness – The Superpower That Can Change Your Life (and the World)


with Jeff Edelstein

Calendar Current session started Mar 5, 2024 at 6 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Kindness is a superpower that every one of us has. We will explore how “intentional acts of kindness” can transform our friendships, relationships, families, workplaces, schools, and politics. We’ll look at the different forms that kindness can take and share our personal experiences with kindness. We’ll explore the creation of our own “personal kindness practices” as well as collective acts of community kindness that are fun, creative, and meaningful. Students will have the chance to experiment with their kindness practices between sessions. We’ll discuss ways to support each other in rising to our kindest selves, including introduction to a wide variety of inspiring readings, films, and talks. This program meets the first Tuesday of every month between March and August 2024. The workshop fee includes access to all monthly meetings. Attending every meeting is not mandatory; feel free to participate when you can.

Your instructor will share tips and techniques for setting up your journal as well as for finding inspiration even when you are not feeling particularly inspired. A blank notebook will be provided, please bring your own writing utensils. Can’t wait to see you there! Join your instructor, writer and author Stephanie Garrity, in taking your journaling practice to the next level.
