Mindfulness teacher and grassroots community organizer Shelly Tygielski joins Sharon Salzberg for a conversation around supporting one another through community and integrating mindfulness into social activism. Shelly Tygielski focuses much of her work supporting under-served communities, community organizations, non-profits, and schools. She is deeply involved in offering trauma-informed healing practices to communities affected by gun violence and mass shootings. In March of 2020, Shelly created the Pandemic of Love, a mutual aid organization intended to help those adversely affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic in her local community in Florida, which has grown monumentally to become a global movement with over 6 million dollars in transactions, over 50,000 matches, and hundreds of full-time volunteers worldwide.
