Blog: Take Care of Yourself & Each Other

March 2020

Under normal circumstances, it's of individual and societal value to take care of both oneself and others wherever and whenever it's humanly possible to so. During these uncertain times with the COVID-19 outbreak, it's evermore important to care for ourselves and one another with unwavering compassion.

Even more important than the warmth and affection we receive, is the warmth and affection we give. It is by giving warmth and affection, by having a genuine sense of concern for others, in other words through compassion, that we gain the conditions for genuine happiness. — Dalai Lama


This specific time in history—in our immediate and greater world—brings with it a mixture of emotions and challenges at both the individual and community levels, and rightfully so. I've put together some resources, some are specific to the Nevada (USA) region, but I anticipate that similar resources have already begun to sprung up in other communities across the country and world.
