Real Change: Pandemic of Love

With Shelly Tygielski

Real Change: Pandemic of Love

In this episode, Tricycle’s Editor and Publisher James Shaheen sits down with Sharon Salzberg and Shelly Tygielski, mindfulness teacher and creator of the mutual aid fund Pandemic of Love, to discuss how Shelly turned grief into action. They also talk about the retreats the two of them have held for victims of mass shootings. 

Their conversation is the second in the five-part Real Change podcast series featuring Sharon’s new book, Real Change: Mindfulness to Heal Ourselves and the World, and the people in it who are creating change in their communities. Tricycle Talks will be releasing the other episodes throughout the month. Stay tuned to hear conversations with Michael Kink, Daisy Hernández, and Arian Moayed.
