Jeannette Maré, Ben’s Bells Founder and Chief Kindness Officer, will lead an in-depth discussion on the challenges and opportunities we encounter in every interaction as we strive to create a kinder community. During the course, Jeannette will reflect on her own personal experiences with kindness in the face of devastating grief, as well as her work with Ben’s Bells Project and the power of kindness to transform people and communities. We’ll explore the ways we can implement evidence-based practices of intentional kindness as a powerful skill in daily life. You will learn about the science that helps us understand the nature of our mental experience, including why it is sometimes difficult to be kind. You will also discover that practicing kindness as a skill empowers us to respond rather than react. This informative and inspiring course will leave you ready to start your intentional kindness practice today!
