An Act of Kindfulness – Mindful New Mexico

Date grant awarded: January 23, 2019

Listening: An Act of Kindfulness is a heart-centered activity offered by Mindful New Mexico, a social impact organization founded by Sidni Lamb. When we listen with full presence and when we feel heard, certain areas in our brain are stimulated for us to be more empathetic. It’s a reciprocal action for both listener and speaker.

The Global Kindness Grant will help prepare volunteers to offer an open ear and heart with the gift of non-judgmental listening to strangers in public spaces. It will also support walks that combine awareness of self and surroundings through listening for kindness with more than just the ears.
