Take a Compassion Break Wednesdays, 7:30 pm – 8:00 pm on Zoom.
Please join Judy Clarke and Jill Goldsmith for a short (free) Zoom session offering mindfulness tools to work with the fear and anxiety many of us are experiencing.

If you sign up for the class through the goldsmithclarke email, we will send you an audio recording of the talk and practice after class for you to use if you find it helpful. You can read more about Judy and Jill at www.goldsmithclarke.com. You can download a free version of Zoom video conferencing here.
The format will be a short discussion of the topic, followed by a meditation practice on the topic. Last week we discussed about the anxiety and fear change can cause us to experience, followed by a short mindfulness meditation on working with anxiety we may feel about the changes going on right now in our lives. This week we will talk about working with difficult emotions and share a short mindfulness meditation practice exploring how to work with our difficult emotions skillfully.
