Why This Day Matters with France Roy – Thursdays 7 – 8:15pm

It’s been almost a year since we put on our masks, separated from each other, and said goodbye to our relatively free existence. Without our rituals of going to work, spending time with friends and family, and co-existing in shared spaces, most of us have had to adapt to a new, shrunken existence. A year into this, the emotional toll is mounting. Everyday is starting to look the same and ‘Covid burnout’ has become a very real thing. How can we feel expansive, connected, and live from a place of possibility and optimism when there’s a sense of mass depletion and bleakness?

Buddha shared specific teachings on how to respond to such challenging circumstances so that instead of taking us into a downward spiral they become the source of deep personal growth. By practicing these methods, our mental attitudes will shift and we will find that our difficult circumstances energize us and ultimately unlock our potential for real happiness, emotional freedom, love, wisdom and more.
