About this Event

In this session, we will invite tools that can help anchor our state of mind as we navigate volatility and uncertainty. We will start with grounding breathing techniques drawn from the yogic tradition and will follow with a compassion meditation inspired by Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT). CCT is a program designed to strengthen resilience, increase connection with others, and provide a general sense of well-being.
