“Kindness is not just a social nicety. It has changed lives, changed history,
and is at the root of our survival.”

While the planet is heating up, human relationships seem to be cooling down, becoming speedy and impersonal. Aggression has become an accepted and even expected way to interact with others, while kindness and thoughtfulness are often perceived as weaknesses.

How we feel about this shift matters. It determines how we interact with others as well as the impact we have on them, and on society as a whole.

In this context it is worthwhile to reflect on kindness. What is it? Is it just a social nicety or something more? What difference does it make in our lives and in society in general?

Join us for an exploration of kindness. We will reflect, share stories, and perhaps rediscover the power of this human quality.

Christine Heming is a Shastri, a senior teacher, in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition. Fostering genuine communication has been a major part of her life’s work. Shastri Heming lives in the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia.
