A big Thank You! to my former boss at Harborside Oakland, Andrew DeAngelo, for spotlighting the iRest meditation work I’ve been doing with the veterans of Operation EVAC, headed by another former Harborsider, my colleague and brother in wellness, Ryan Miller. ✊✨🕉️
Paul Bloom, the Brooks and Suzanne Ragen Professor of Psychology at Yale University, discusses his argument against empathy in favor of the fruits of mindfulness. “Mindfulness makes you nicer because it shuts down empathic centers of brain, so you can access compassion.” Bloom is the author of “Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion.”
We are now online three times per week! OperationEVAC’s Ryan Miller hosts a peer-led support group (also open to civilians!), followed by an iRest Meditation to help you build resilience and navigate challenging times from a place of presence and equanimity. iRest also can facilitate a good night’s sleep later, which is what we all need! Join us!
Easy meditation. Please use often and share widely. Stay. Present.
In Gratitude & Compassion, Jaene
