Our collective life is changing at a pace that is was unimaginable even a few weeks ago.  The forces of greed, hatred and ignorance are manifesting with a vengeance that is leaving many reeling, hopeless and terrified.  
The teachings of the Buddha provide a refuge and vehicle for calming the heart and opening to wisdom, love and compassion. They also provide skills for listening deeply for the guidance that will guide us how to act skillfully, powerfully and effectively in the world.
