COVID-19. Protests. Presidential Election. 2020 has been an insane year. After all the craziness of a very contentious election, take some time to take a deep breath, stop for a moment, and get back to reality. Dr. Ravi Chandra, founder of the SF Love Dojo, https://www.sflovedojo.org/, will walk us through a session to calm our minds and release the stress and tension that has built up over the past few days, weeks, and months.
Ravi Chandra, M.D. is a psychiatrist and writer in San Francisco, and a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. Facebuddha: Transcendence in the Age of Social Networks is his full-length nonfiction debut, and is the winner of the 2017 Nautilus Silver Book Award for Religion/Spirituality of Eastern Thought. Dr. Chandra is a graduate of Brown University, Stanford University School of Medicine, and UCSF’s Psychiatry residency program.
