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.
