Neighbors Together is a soup kitchen and social service center committed to ending hunger and poverty in Brooklyn. In response to COVID-19, Neighbors Together switched to a grab-and-go model, and on Wednesday they were able to distribute 200 meals in just two hours. As the crisis continues, more people will be in need of the emergency services offered by Neighbors Together and they need donations now more than ever. Please consider giving at https://neighborstogether.org/help/.


Freaking out? You're not alone—and you're not malfunctioning. We're in a moment of uncertainty and anxiety. Hence our new experiment: Ten Percent Happier LIVE.    

Every weekday, we'll offer a free live sanity break, featuring our host, Dan Harris, and some of the world's best meditation teachers, streaming from their homes to yours. We'll start with a five minute meditation, and then take questions from the audience.
