Hello Kind Living Friends!

Can you imagine peace on earth? I mean really, full-blown, no worry of war and global conflict, peace on earth?

I'm part of a team of eight people who over the next four months are going to "beta test" an activity, what we are calling a game, designed to, by the year 2030, involve 40,000,000 (that's forty million) people all over the world fully activated to make peace on earth a reality.

We are using David Gershon's "Seven Actions to Create Peace on Earth" as our guide, endeavoring to make each of the seven actions into a "game."

We met online via video chat last Tuesday and our first task is to engage others in our networks to commit to joining us in September. I'm writing to see if I can get eight people on the Kind Living email list to commit, to be part of the early adopters who help us build to forty million people in ten years.

Learn more at this website. And please respond to me privately via email so I can count you as one of my eight. 

Peace on earth is possible, folks!


FROM THE ARCHIVES - Compassion Curriculum

A few years ago, I responded to requests from several elementary school teachers to provide a curriculum designed to help them engage their students in the concept of compassion. Having worked to create something like this for the 2015 Compassion Games, it wasn't terribly challenging to adapt it for this purpose.

My friend David Spangler had seeded in me the idea of using the metaphor of a power plant for the Compassion Games that year, which I then made into five lessons for the teachers. I explain that the metaphor is to get their students thinking about what gives them energy. 

By the end of the five lessons, the hope is students have recognized how to become their own renewable power sources and are regularly passing positive energy on to others.

You can access the curriculum here.
Kind Living inspires people to both recognize
and engage in acts of ordinary kindness.
