Siyli Practice Kindness Assets 06

To celebrate World Kindness Day in 2020 we created an intentional pause to connect with our common humanity and #PracticeKindness, together.

At the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute we are inspired by a future where everyone feels connected. When we understand ourselves and see our similarities with others, we act with a true desire to be in service to others, which further deepens our connection. Through practice, discussion and celebration of kindness and of our common humanity, we believe that we can contribute to a kinder world. It all starts by taking one step to search within.

Practice Kindness Livestream Facebook Linked In

We celebrated World Kindness Day with a special livestream with world-renowned meditation teacher, Sharon Salzberg and mindful activist and community organizer, Shelly Tygielski.

This year, we celebrated World Kindness Day with 24 hours of kindness. For 24 hours, Search Inside Yourself certified teachers from around the world hosted free live compassion practices every 30 minutes in 6 different languages, leading up to World Kindness Day on November 13th. 

As one participant shared, "May kindness extend beyond to all 365 days in the year." We hope to support you as you continue your kindness-practice. 

Here are a few ways you can continue to practice kindness: Watch the recording of the livestream with Sharon Salzberg and Shelly Tygielski, sign up for our community partnership with Pandemic of Love and enjoy the other free resources below. 

SIYLI x Pandemic of Love

As a part of our partnership with Pandemic of Love, we are excited to have our own community of mutual kindness-based aid. 

Pandemic of Love is a non-profit disruptor started by our Practice Kindness livestream speaker and SIY community member, Shelly Tygielski. They are a mutual aid community of care that was started in response to the COVID-19 epidemic. It humbly began on March 14th, 2020 by Shelly and was intended to help her own local community. But, like an epidemic, the act of love and kindness spread quickly and is now a beautiful movement helping those in need throughout the world.
