To celebrate World Kindness Day in 2021 we will create 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.
Watch last year's livestream with Sharon Salzberg and Shelly Tygielski:
Last 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.
