Who Can Turn Down A Kindness Roadtrip? :)
Posted by Amy Michelson on Jul 7, 2019
Last weekend, a carload of us drove up from SoCal to serve and spread smiles at the After Mindfulness-themed conference at UC Berkeley.
Here's 1-minute photo slideshow from our days together:
Throughout the weekend, we were grateful to serve the conference's Festival of Sharing with an Encouragement Booth ("Tell us your highest aspiration. We will listen devoutly and encourage abundantly"), and a color-in tablecloth that became a real-time community mandala. We also made bookmarks with inspiring messages to gift out -- and were delighted when a monk came by and asked if he could gift them to people he works with in prisons! In between, we met others from the local ecosystem, and deepened in conversation (and more songs!) at Banyan Grove.
Thank you all for filling my heart with happiness. You inspire me to live kindfully and give me hope.
