Eveline Brandt sits alone at the kitchen table, because Joost van den Heuvel Rijnders could not sit 1,5 meters away from her. Unfortunately, but the topic of this podcast may cheer you up: Joy in times of Corona. With a wink, or rather a deep bow to Gabriel Garcia Marquez and his beautiful book Love in the Time of Cholera.
How do we continue to experience joy in this difficult time? There are all kinds of ways described in Buddhism! So although this is undeniably a difficult, sometimes sad period for all of us, there are still plenty of opportunities to develop joy (from within). Think of experiencing gratitude, practicing mindfulness, practicing loving-kindness and even more possibilities that Eveline Brandt discusses in this episode. And – very interestingly – what Buddhism provided in terms of insights centuries ago has also been confirmed in scientific research in our time: we can significantly boost our own well-being! So listen and dance along with Eveline at the end of this podcast.
