The Idea of the Week
Whether we perform an act of kindness, receive, or even witness it, doing something kind for someone can give us a warm, glowing feeling on the inside. This 5-minute read discusses the research about how one act of kindness can create a ripple effect.
In a 22-minute TEDx Talk, Orly Wahba describes her journey from dreaming as a young child to changing the world through the power of kindness. She mentions the obstacles she faced along her journey, including battling depression, and the life lessons she learned. Kindness is a perspective and contagious (in a good way!). As a teacher, Orly explains the many projects she did in the classroom with her students, including “Catching Kindness” cards to pass along to someone you’ve witness performing an act of kindness.
The Practice of the Week
When our loved ones are feeling down or at a low point in life, we want to support them and be there for them. Although, sometimes it’s hard to know how we can be of help—how we can support them. This Verywell Mind article (a 7-minute read), breaks down How to Support and Show Up for the People You Care About.
There is an endless amount of ways we can show our loved ones we care—most of which do not have to be a big or profound project. Instead, they can be small actions or a few words. Here are 21 simple ways to show someone you love them to get you started:
- Perform an act of service
- Gift something meaningful
- Plan a surprise
- Spend quality time with them
- Take them out to eat
- Make a promise jar
- Offer a warm hug
- Make a list of what you love and appreciate about them
- Write a poem
- Express your gratitude
- Fill out a card
- Put together a video
- Write a song
- Just say it: “I love you.”
- Call or video chat them and stay in touch
- Send snail mail
- Check in over email
- Send flowers
- When separated by long distance, gift them a meal by using a food delivery service or getting them a gift card
- Send a care package
- Make a surprise visit

Family Constellations is a type of therapeutic approach that focuses on exploring the dynamics within a person’s family system, including their relationships with parents, siblings, grandparents, and other family members, even ancestors. This approach can be used to address a variety of issues, such as relationship difficulties, emotional blocks, and unresolved traumas.
This workshop involves a group of participants who come together to explore their own family dynamics through a series of exercises and discussions led by our facilitator, Tatian Davila, a psychotherapist, healer, and seeker of ancestral knowledge. Tati will offer 2 workshops as well as individual healings. The workshops will be held at Breathing Space Studio in Erieville, NY.
