Show Notes

Ivory Tifa, Occupational Therapist, Poet and Kindness Doula joins Lolita E. Walker on this episode and it is soooo juicy.  It challenges your thinking a bit and helps each of us say hmmmm. We are about to move a little differently after this episode here!

Question:  When you are at your lowest, do you think of kindness as that "thing" that will help you cope and heal through it all?  Hmmm. #nojudgement but worth the thought.

Ivory not only shares an original poem entitled, "Would you do anything differently?" but she also draws an intersection between therapy, healing and kindness.  

Imagine being near the World Trade Center during 9/11, in a city with no family and your dorm room in shabbles.  Would your first thought be to gift kindness?  You have to tune in.

We talk everything from walking into purpose and passion, recognizing you've been moving in your zone of genius every day, without even knowing working with children at the border to help them cope with trauma, random acts of kindness that we can do TODAY, plus so much more.
