SCIENCE of Kindness


Below you will find a list of resources describing the drivers behind the experiments of KindSpring. This includes the latest research within each topic area, from the subjects of the challenges themselves (eg, why kindness?) to the structure of the challenge (eg, why 21 days?). It also includes links to beautiful stories that speak to what kind of ripples can happen inside ourselves and in our communities through these practices. We look forward to practicing with you!
