“In a pandemic, self-isolation is called quarantine. In Buddhism, it is called retreat. From the cave of our home, like the meditators of ancient times, we can consciously kindle the lamp of compassion and connection.”
~ Lama Willa Miller
I will post erratically, each time I stumble upon a picture or a quote that warms my heart. So we can share the positives vibes and elevate our consciousness together ❤️
If you feel like sharing your positive sayings/pictures, this place is your as well!
Stay safe my friends !

And you stay safe, too, Estelea!
I absolutely love this quote, Estelea. Thank you for sharing! Reframing this time as a time of retreat rather than a time of panic has really helped me as I adjust to this normal.
I so hope you and your family are staying safe in Vietnam!
Hello dear Britta ! We are ok in Hanoi, getting used to the e-learning and limitation of movement. We are now locked in the country as flights are grounded, so we take it a day at a time .. Masks are now compulsory in shops and all public places (hence everywhere ) and everyone is playing by the rules.
I am much more worried about Europe. As long as it was an Asian business I felt that we could always “fly back home”. Very challenging times where the practice of kindness (self)compassion and empathy is essential 💖
Hope you are all fine! Take good care and a big virtual hug
