Speaker(s): Julia Jarvis, Wellness Advisor
This event is recommended for: Summer Interns; Postbacs; Graduate Students; Postdocs/Fellows; NIH Staff Scientist/Staff Clinician.

Loving-kindness meditation (or Metta Bhavana) is one of the oldest forms of Buddhist practice, but it can be adapted and done by anyone, regardless of religious, spiritual or secular orientation.  This practice helps us actively cultivate positive emotional states (care, goodwill, warm-hearted feeling) towards ourselves and others, so that we become more accepting, patient, and compassionate.  The world feels like it really could use all of this right now.  Hope you can join us.
