2020-03-19 A Powerful Lens to Meet a Pandemic 39:40
  Nathan Glyde
There is always a way of looking or way of relating to life operating when we are perceiving. When we understand that we can adjust this, we find a profound level of freedom. What is the most freeing lens to bring to how we look at this pandemic? And what does that mean (as a transferable skill) when we bring freeing ways of looking to the totality of our experience?

A guided meditation offering mettā (well-wishing) towards those working the frontlines of health care and social care, those whose bodies are affected by the virus or disease themselves, and those taking precautions (like being in isolation). Opening our hearts and minds to all those affected, and beyond to all beings everywhere, can help reduce our stress and allow us to be more available to support. Includes a brief introduction: skip first 3 mins to get to the beginning of guided meditation. May all beings be cared for and well in heart-mind and body.

This talk offers reflections on possibilities that are available to us, including practices that we can engage with, lean into, and cultivate.
