‘Kindness is having the ability to speak with love,

listen with patience, and act with compassion.”

-Random Acts of Kindness Foundation

 Join the Healing Story Alliance for a monthly gathering to share and explore stories of kindness in its many faces and forms. Through folk tales and personal stories, we will dive deeply into multiple experiences of kindness. What is it? How does it impact us and our relationships to ourselves, to each other, to the world? Come and listen to “kind stories” shared by both professional tellers and community members and see what memories of kindness emerge for you.

Cost: FREE!

Date: March 7, 2021

Time: 7:00 pm- 8:30 pm EST

(Open Mic Story Share and Reflection: 8:00 PM-8:30 PM)

Format: The story session opens with a concert of seasoned tellers sharing stories with themes of kindness. During the second half of the gathering, audience members are invited to share a story, moment, or reflection about kindness that emerged for them as listeners.

Purpose: We all need a little more kindness in our lives. Perhaps a story can take us there.
