The I Can Centre is "A Kinder Society" initiative promoting respect care & compassion
The I Can Centre is A Kinder Society initiative. We are the co- founders of A Kinder Society vision - a diverse group of very awesome people committed to achieving a kinder and better society by carrying out at least one DAILY act of kindness at a time (DAKtivism™). That daily act of kindness begins with selfcare because we cant give what we dont have. It then extends to our families, organisations and whole communities. More DAKtivists are needed. Do join us and help make a difference.
Kindness means being sensitive to suffering in ourselves and others. It includes a deep commitment to prevent / manage that suffering and nurture well-being (Gilbert, 2015). It involves respect, care and compassion for all. At least one daily act of kindness potentially can change lives and even whole communities. Lets test this out?
From little acorns, many mighty oaks grow.
We have seen a lot of really great achievements over the last 100 years or so with much to celebrate:
Alongside the achievements above however are real challenges e.g.
We need a different way - kindness. Particularly given the common denominator of people i.e. how we relate to ourselves and each other.
A kind person:
How might things change if we were kinder to ourselves? Each other?
An activist is a person who campaigns with others to bring about a particular cause. As DAKtivists, our cause is - daily acts of kindness.
DAKtivists are people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures actively committed to one or more Daily Acts of Kindness. This can include:
In essence it starts with ourselves but can be as wide and as collaborative as our imaginations allow. Anyone who believes in kindness every day is a DAKtivist, but becoming a formal one just helps build a peer community of support, e.g. to test and share ideas; make new friends; find encouragement, and also contribute to real change for individuals and whole communities.
