Elections can be stressful during the best of times, and this year’s presidential race is like no other in recent memory, compounded by Covid-19, increased awareness of racial tensions, natural disasters, and a shaky economy. As November 3 fast approaches, we at IMS felt we could all likely benefit from taking a moment to pause, breathe, and find our balance as we experience fear and uncertainty.
On November 2, the day before election Tuesday, renowned meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg will offer an hour-long program including two short, guided meditations. The first will focus on mindfulness of the breath to cultivate calm and stability. The second, on lovingkindness, will aim to help restore our connection to ourselves and to one another. In this one-hour event, Sharon will also offer words of wisdom and encouragement as we navigate this difficult time.
Cost: free of charge, with a suggested donation of $5 or more if possible. Please note that this event is being held virtually due to the COVID pandemic restrictions.
