Event description

Description

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted".

Kindness is one of the great universal values. And yet, the lack of it can also be clearly seen in our communities, environment and world. Can kindness be learned? Can it be taught? Or is it all some kind of innate capacity?

Research indicates that kindness allied with compassion may lead to greater happiness and contentment levels, and thus to a greater quality of life. This begs the question, can kindness help us also when adversity strikes, especially serious illness, and the dying process. Can we die well, as well as live well?

The evening will be lead by Trinity's Spiritual Lead, Michael Savage, and Alan Hughes, a teacher of mindfulness and meditation with the Mindfulness Association.

Alan became interested in Buddhism, and started meditating, in his late teens. In 2010, he gave up his job as a marine biologist to deepen his interest in Buddhism and meditation, and for five years he volunteered full-time at the Tibetan Buddhist centre in London.

He now focuses his time on teaching mindfulness and meditation.
