In this time of COVID19 crisis, with attendant anxiety, stress, uncertainty, and isolation, we need ways to connect, heal and grow. Self compassion and compassion cultivation are critical at this time. Self-compassion boosts resilience, prevents burnout, and reduces depression and anxiety. Compassion, among other benefits, boosts the immune system and helps us build better relationships with ourselves and others during difficulty.

In this Zoom session, Dr. Ravi Chandra will introduce some specific self-compassion skills for this time of crisis. We'll also break out into pairs and connect with a prompt to discuss. Depending on the size of the group, we'll have opportunities for large group discussion and question and answer.

This session is open for all who think they might benefit. In the checkout process, you'll be able to say whether you're a health care provider, other care provider, or person of color (some groups to which I have particular connection.) There will also be a waitlist.

If this session is oversubscribed, I will offer another session. Also, if there is a need, I will have future sessions for health care workers, caregivers/teachers, and people of color.
