Self-compassion boosts resilience, prevents burnout, and reduces depression and anxiety. Compassion, among other benefits, boosts the immune system and helps us build better relationships with ourselves and others during times of difficulty.

In these Zoom sessions, Dr. Ravi Chandra will introduce some specific mindfulness, compassion, and self-compassion skills for this time of crisis. We’ll also break out into pairs and connect through discussion. We’ll have opportunities for a larger group discussion and a Q&A.

Ravi Chandra, M.D., is a psychiatrist and writer in San Francisco, and a distinguished fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. “Facebuddha: Transcendence in the Age of Social Networks” is his full-length nonfiction debut and is the winner of the 2017 Nautilus Silver Book Award for Religion/Spirituality of Eastern Thought. He is also the founder of SF Love Dojo, an organization teaching compassion and self-compassion.
