"Kindness is Contagious" documentary - Friday, May 26 at 6:00 - Free screening of the 75 minute documentary followed by a brief discussion. The documentary began with an article about James Fowler and his research concerning the viral nature of kindness. Fowler demonstrated that if you are kind to one person, they will be kind to four other people, and that each of those four people will be kind to four more people, and so on and so on... With this in mind, the general consensus amongst researchers in this arena is that we are hardwired to cooperate with one another. In short, to be kind. This is our fundamental strength as a species and the reason why we are the most successful organism on the planet. "Kindness Is Contagious" profiles cutting-edge scientists and best-selling authors from Berkeley to Harvard and everywhere in between as well as real life people from all walks of life whose lives illustrate their incredible discovery: Nice guys and gals finish first! Learn how a little generosity can help us live a happier, healthier, wealthier, longer and more fulfilling life.
