Does kindness matter? Can it really that make much of a difference in your life? What about the lives of others? What does it even mean to be kind? His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, for example, speaks of kindness & compassion in conjunction with happiness; he also includes in his definition responsibility and accountability. This beautifully arranged & tear-jerking clip leans heavily on these notions and makes a highly emotional and compelling case worth considering. (Bring your tissues!)

Our 2023 philosophy symposia series looked at what it means to be at the interface of loss and legacy. In Spring, we examined the question “How do we think about grief?” during our symposium (held at the Helena Avenue Theater) and considered the business of death by way of a film & community conversation (conducted in Reeder’s Alley). Access resources & watch the audio-video recording here!
