66: Meditation : Connection & Compassion As We All Live With Gun Violence

Welcome to the Mindful FIRE Podcast, where we explore living mindfully on the path to financial independence and beyond.

This guided meditation was recorded during our weekly community meditation on Fridays at 2:30 pm ET. We’d love for you to join us live for a short meditation and time to connect and ask questions. You can sign up at

Today’s meditation is in response to the recent horrible gun violence incidents in which so many innocent lives were cut short, because of the gun laws in this country. I am feeling sad, angry and frustrated as I imagine many others are feeling.

In this meditation I invite you to create space for you to connect with how you are feeling and how what’s going on in the world (and its so much) is feeling in your body, mind and heart.

Then we transition into some loving kindness, compassion practice.

We begin with ourselves and then offer our kindness to those in Uvalde, Buffalo, California, and Toronto.

Then we expand to all humans living in the United States, since in reality we are all affected by gun violence.

I hope you find it helpful. Subscribe for more meditations and inspiring interviews.
