How Kindness Can Change A Life

Sep 02, 2015, 2 comments, 5 smiles We recently have heard so much publicity around someone paying for an anonymous persons coffee at Starbucks, or even the one-minute circles where 2 people just look into each others eyes for 1 minute, without speaking. What do these acts do for our minds and our bodies: building connections with strangers, paying for someone’s coffee or receiving a coffee? Summit Shah possibly wondered a similar thing, is it possible to pay forward a smile? In 2007 or 2008, while Summit was still in college, he came across the concept of Smile Cards at a conference in Los Angeles, CA where he heard Nipun Mehta speak on his journey with kindness and the development of smile cards.” Summit reflects, “he talked about how kindness had impacted his life”, which left Shah “completely inspired”. He took those Smile Cards back to his hometown of Columbus, OH; they were itching to cause a stir. The ... Read Full Story

Carter Phipps: Evolutionaries Bridging Creative

Aug 17, 2015, 1 comments, 2 smiles As I walk down the street, the same street that I do on many days, I can't help but to think today about the purpose of my walk. One foot in front of the other. Moving forwards, not backwards. Why is that? When I raise my thought-gaze from my walking feet to the bustling city around me, I cant help but to think about what this place must have looked like 50 years ago.

What is in this life for me? What is in this life for my community? These thoughts dance in my mind, as the wind dances with ... Read Full Story

Gwen Austin: Deepening Our Understanding Of The

Jul 06, 2015, 2 comments, 5 smiles What does homeless mean? One without a home? In our present culture, do we tend to reach out to these people to help them, or do we stay out of their path in our un-centered response of flight, fight or freeze? In a recent Awakin Call with Gwen Austin, these issues were brought to the foreground. Gwen Austin is a community builder and social justice advocate with Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency (BOSS), an organization in Berkeley, California that helps homeless and disabled people achieve health and self-sufficiency, as well as fights the root causes of poverty and homelessness. One example, Gwen spent thirty minutes speaking with a group of homeless people, forfeiting the negative impulses to take flight (or run away) from them, to fight them, or to freeze and not know what to do, she was able to look deeply into each persons eyes, losing the adjective of “homeless” or “homefull”, ...
