Life has its moments… joy, suffering, tenderness, uncertainty, and more.  Pandemics, economic hardships, deeper recognition of racial and gender inequities, and political strife have all collided recently to generate a unique era.  How can we hold this moment, adapt to it, even learn from it? 

Is there an antidote for the stress of the current moment?

Join authors Sue Patton Thoele and Dr. Greg Sazima in conversation on a practical, mindful approach to managing this challenging time. Sue and Greg, both veteran psychotherapists and teachers, will offer wisdom on their own approaches to applying mindfulness and meditation as an all-natural remedy for the uncertainties and difficulties of now.  They will offer insights on why mindfulness practices work, how to cultivate them, and what we can gain in inward calm and outward compassion.
