Wisdom in Time of Challenge: Support Resources


This page offers a gathering of Wisdom resources ― videos, events and writings ― being shared specifically as a response to the current global situation. We have gathered content from Teachers we have hosted, as well as others we find deeply valuable.

In addition, Open Circle offers an extended choice of mostly donation-based online events intended to be of best support during this time of transition.

If you’d like to suggest a profound, relevant resource not listed below, please write to sara@opencirclecenter.org.
