Love & Kindness

A remembering and returning to Love.

This pillar is our foundation — The root of all wave-making.

The selfless act of using one’s time to make impactful change is, within itself, a loving act of kindness.

It is leading with compassion and choosing to do the internal work so that we can always find our way back to love. It is filling up our own cup, so that we have enough overflow to share with others.

How can we make generosity and connection as present as the air we breathe?

Healing Resistance: A Radically Different Response to Harm

Nonviolence was once considered the highest form of activism and radical change. And yet its basic truth, its restorative power, has been forgotten. In Healing Resistance, leading Kingian Nonviolence trainer Kazu Haga blazingly reclaims the energy and assertiveness of nonviolent practice (utilized by the Women’s March and Black Lives Matter), and proves that nonviolent civil resistance remains the most effective strategy for social change in hostile times.

The Power of Kindness

As a veteran emergency room physician, Dr. Brian Goldman has a successful career setting broken bones, curing pneumonia, and otherwise pulling people back from the brink of medical emergency. He always believed that caring came naturally to physicians. But time, stress, errors, and heavy expectations left him wondering if he might not be the same caring doctor he thought he was at the beginning of his career. He wondered what kindness truly looks like—in himself and in others.

The War for Kindness

This book will not provide ten simple steps for how to be kinder today. It won’t promise that, despite appearances, people are essentially good after all. Humanity might naturally be 39 percent kind, or 71 percent kind, or somewhere in between. What matters is not where we begin, but where we can go.
