By Steven Libowitz   |   April 2, 2020

With COVID-19 concessions confining almost everyone to their homes, Santa Barbara meditation teacher Radhule Weininger, Ph.D., just keeps expanding her ongoing offerings to the community to gather, connect, and share silence and guided meditations together. The weekly schedule produced by the clinical psychologist and teacher of Buddhist meditation and Buddhist psychology now includes events on every day of the week, save for Saturday, and features no fewer than 11 different practitioners with various approaches as guides. On Mondays from 12-12:30 pm it’s Anahita Holden and Hattie Bluestone “Mindful Self-compassion,” while 7-8:15 pm Weininger offers “Mindfulness and Compassion.” Tuesdays at 7 pm is Stacy Zumbroigel “Meditation and Trauma,” and Weininger teams with Danjo San for “Mindfulness, Compassion, and Zen” at 7 pm on Wednesdays. Thursdays brings Juliet Rhode-Brown’s “Gentle Mindfulness” at 2 pm and Renee Golan’s “Mindfulness and Compassion” at 7 pm. Fridays at 9-10 am is Alexis Slutzky’s “Being with Grief and Uncertainty” and Weininger teams with her husband Michael Kearney for “Mindfulness, Compassion, and Nature-Connection” on Sundays 10 am.

There are also new offerings for children and their caregivers, including Vivian Valentin and her kids presenting “Mindful Activities for Kids and Parents” on Tuesdays at 3 pm, and Ann-Marie Charest’s “Mindfulness for Parents & Children” on Thursdays 9 am. Just click on Weininger’s Zoom room ( to access any of the sessions, and admission continues to be free.
