2020-03-16 Well-being in the time of Coronavirus - COVID-19 35:24
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.

How to practice in daily life, or whenever there is more going on than on the beneficial fabrication of a silent meditation retreat. Primarily we'll develop vibrant tranquility (samatha) via getting to know body-heart-mind, cultivating gratitude and mettā, and nourishing a spacious breath and body awareness.
