Seeking the Center Within Us

For me, meditation is a way to work through the ongoing turmoil I’ve felt throughout these opening months of my medical education, particularly in the context of the multiple life stressors that have provided background to my daily life: the pandemic, the social/political climate in our country, caring for close family members with recent hospitalizations, a battle with recurring depression and identity, to name some. In order to break these down, I look to meditation as a necessary form of relief.
