Since it’s inception, The Kindness Center’s mission has been to open minds, awaken hearts, and demonstrate that kindness is not a weakness, but rather, one of humanity’s greatest strengths.

Recognizing the complexities of humankind (and the ongoing challenge to be both human and kind), we have developed a series of programs that support emotional wellness through the application of heart-focused principles. To learn more about our keynotes and workshops, please visit the appropriate pages. We are now reserving speaking dates for conferences, businesses, school assemblies, and colleges/universities.
