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 can we deepen understanding and compassion in the midst of it all?
This talk offers reflections on possibilities that are available to us, including practices that we can engage with, lean into, and cultivate.
