Session Date: Tuesday, February 9, 2016
In today’s hustle and bustle of our every day lives, it is too easy to move through the day disconnected from our quality and quantity as humans to be kind and caring. Let’s promote the end to Lateral violence. Being fluent in kindness is a crusade that encourages and reminds us to develop our ability for kindness. Join us for Pt. 2 of Transforming Conflict | in Lateral Kindness with Denise Findlay.
Being fluent in kindness means:
(1) being kind to others
(2) being kind to yourself
(3) being kind to the planet
We each need to continually work to practice kindness in all of these ways.
