Mini Ep. 4 - The Power of Kindness in the World
Why should we be kinder to the world at large? That’s a question we’re exploring on today’s episode, which is the continuation of the #onekindsummer campaign on the pod. I’m on a 4-week break from posting interviews, but in the meantime I want to take a few minutes each week to think about how we can spread kindness this summer and beyond. Interviews will resume on Tuesday, July 9th.
It’s been great to see so many of you following along with this compassion series. This is the third and final week of the series. Today’s episode is inspired by Jamil Zaki’s book called “The War for Kindness.” Zaki notes that, “Plato saw mental life as a war between reason and passion – one that we often lose.” So, this war is in our minds. If you are interested in neuroscience and the research behind empathy, then you will want to get your hands on a copy of this book.
I’d love to hear if you have any other tips or practices that help you. Be sure to use the hashtag #onekindsummer to show how you are spreading kindness and to recognize those who have made your life a little bit easier or brighter.
So stay tuned if you’re interested. Interviews will resume on Tuesday, July 9th. See the full transcript HERE. This show is a labor of love for me, so I’d be grateful if you would rate or review it. Thank you!
