Updated Practices for Resilience for Right Now…and For the Long Haul
When I began posting practices for Resilience for Right Now…and For the Long Haul at the beginning of the pandemic (March 2020), I had no idea, none of us had any idea, how long, how longer than long, this pandemic would be impacting our lives, our resilience, our well-being.
I last updated the website page in April 2021 as hopes were beginning to emerge that we could emerge from the worst of the pandemic in the next few weeks or months. All of those offerings of practical wisdom are still relevant and useful today.
Karuna is the Sanskrit word for compassion. Weekly postings of stories of everyday heroism and kindness from around the world.
“In such times, love must rise again.”
An example: After musician Yoko Sen fell and spent weeks in the hospital, decided to create soothing nature and human sounds to replace hospital machine sounds and give patients a sense of interconnectedness with the rest of the world. Learn more in The Sounds of Healing.
Weekly postings of simple practices that, repeated over time, bring more joy, more fulfilling relationships, more peace of mind.
An example of just one thing that could change your life: Forgive Yourself.
Daily postings of news that inspires.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.

Enjoy the renewal of exploration and learning; enjoy the recovering of your resilience.
