Feeling stressed, anxious or disconnected in the face of the uncertainty brought about by the novel corona virus is both incredibly common and completely understandable. This invisible adversary is challenging us to think simultaneously about self-care and the greater good while our routines are being upended. The only way we can confront the problem and slow the transmission of COVID-19, however, is by practicing kindness toward self and others. Through a recognition of our common humanity and our deep interconnectedness to all people, we can summon the courage to not give into despair over the things we cannot control, while focusing on what we can do.

Humans have remarkable resiliency and a tendency in times of great difficulty to respond with cooperation, compassion and generosity.  Whether assisting those in need through medical treatment, material assistance, or simply a comforting word or thoughtful gesture, we can all make a positive contribution—and by doing so, increase our own sense of connection and wellbeing.

Although we’ve had to suspend all live CBCT® classes for the time being, we wanted to create a place where we can meet together in community to remind ourselves that “social distancing” is about creating physical space, not about disconnecting from the family, friends and communities that help us feel anchored in the midst of turmoil.  We will be offering free, live, online compassion practice and fellowship sessions. All are welcome.

Beginning Sunday at 9:00 am, June 21, 2020, the schedule will be as follows:

  • Tuesdays and Thursdays, twice daily at 7:30 am and 7:30 pm (Eastern U.S. Time Zone)
  • Sundays, once daily at 9:00 am (Eastern U.S. Time Zone)
