Among many ways of raising an awareness of kindness—and the importance of acts of kindness—I have begun offering seminars and programs based on Walk in My Shoes. They show us that we can be resourceful and become happier as we take care of ourselves and others.
In 2020, I presented two interactive Walk in My Shoes seminars to middle schoolers at the International School of Boston (ISB). My program augmented the ISB kindness program, “Kids Unselfie.” During our work together, the students drew their favorite shoes and discussed two questions: What does it feel like (literally and figuratively) to walk in your own shoes? When have you walked in the shoes of another? Students learned that kindness is not only a strength but is the result of a conscious choice we make.
One step, then another, toward kindness.
My programs and seminars are an expression of my concern and hope for greater kindness in the world. Each can be tailored to your needs and wishes. At the core of each one will be reminders that practicing kindness is a conscious choice we make and a way of living to strive for, so that all may thrive. As I learn from others, I will continue to share inspiring stories and update programs that contribute to our wellbeing.
