We are in a post-pandemic era for the time being. Yet, we constantly live in aa world wit other kinds of challenge, especially those that illuminate the social, racial and health disparities in our communities not to mention the climate crisis that will affect generations to come. In response to these challenges, there is an abundance of tools once you look for them. My list is but a fraction of what is available.

While we practice emotional courage to turn toward what is difficult, horrific and uncomfortable, we must also turn toward each other and truly cultivate what is good in humankind. Be sure to check out my 21 Days of Kindness, too, for daily inspiration.
