March 23 – Dr. Jennifer Wolkin, Clinical Psychologist
In this episode, Dr. Wolkin provides a helpful distinction when thinking about anxiety: green zone anxiety and red zone anxiety. The green zone is a natural and healthy level of anxiety. Red zone anxiety is characterized by trauma. Dr. Wolkin suggested that what a lot of people are experiencing now is red zone anxiety. She offered excellent perspectives, tips, and tools to help us stay grounded. The video quality at the beginning is a little hinky, but hang in there. It improves.

March 30 – Jeff Carreira, Meditation Teacher
In this episode, Jeff discusses the following quote and then leads a beautiful guided meditation followed by Q&A.
“A challenge of the magnitude we are facing now, opens humanity to new possibilities. In these times we are faced with a choice, to recoil in fear, or open in hope. Many people are choosing to open and what they are finding is that new potentials are awakening for us, both individually and culturally. I want to explore the true opening and opportunity of this moment in history.”
