Gainesville meditation centers hold healing practices in new ways

When Debi and Bob Kolb started dating, their Friday dates always ended with meditations at the Gainesville Retreat Center. 

The couple planned to get married at the center in January after being engaged for two years until the COVID-19 pandemic changed their plans. 

Rather than a ceremony outdoors amid burning incense and candles, the two married at Bo Diddley Plaza. They didn’t want the elegance of fine china, but the elegance of simple clarity, Bob Kolb said.

“Let us vow to remember that all that appears, will disappear in the midst of uncertainty,” their vows read.

Despite the shifts in their circumstances, the two said Zen Buddhism offered them solace.

Through the pandemic and political strife, many have discovered sitting and existing in stillness soothes their occupied minds. Gainesville’s meditation centers Karuna Cottage, ChayVeda Integrative Ayurvedic Healing Arts and Gainesville Retreat Center have similarly seen a pique in interest.

Why I Signed Up for the AstraZeneca Vaccine Trial

I was standing outside the fence at my son’s one and only swimming meet—watching through the wrought-iron bars as the swimmers raced two at a time with an open lane between them—when I heard that University of Wisconsin Hospital was seeking volunteers to test the AstraZeneca Vaccine (AZD1222). It was a few days before school started, which would be online, and after months of social distancing, no-contact delivery, countless virtual meetings, and swabs probing into the gray matter of my lower brain to test for COVID, I was starting to feel a little desperate for anything that might facilitate a return to normal life. Even if it meant donating my body to science. I signed up as soon as I got home.

Similar to the other major vaccines in the news—most notably the Pfizer and Moderna medications—AZD1222 uses a double-injection, or two-shot, protocol. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines differ from

New Jersey “in for several hard months” in coronavirus fight, says Governor Phil Murphy

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said Tuesday, when the first coronavirus vaccinations in the state are set to be administered, will be “momentous” and “a day for hope and optimism.” But, he warned Monday during a public briefing, that shouldn’t allow residents to become complacent. 

“We are also in for several hard months, especially the next 6-8 weeks. As vaccinations move forward, we will be facing stiff headwinds into this second wave,” he said.

Murphy announced Sunday that the first doses of Pfizer’s new vaccine would go to health care workers at University Hospital in Newark on Tuesday. He said the state’s first allotment of 76,000 would be split between health care workers and long-term care facility residents and staff over the next few weeks.

As of Monday, more than 15,883 people in the state had died of COVID-19, with 4,170 new cases reported. The state has reported more than

Regina King Is Fighting to End Racial Inequities in Skin Care

Regina King: Vaseline knows how passionate I am about young, Black girls being invisible and how I want to empower them. So our conversations started as a mutual desire for a philanthropic component. Then the pandemic hit, followed by the uprisings around Breonna Taylor’s, George Floyd’s, and Ahmaud Arbery’s killings, so together we decided it was important to shift the discussion toward topics that were pressing. 

What we found was that the systemic issues that already existed in our country were being magnified as a result of the coronavirus—and the people protesting were risking their health to change the system. We wanted to do something that addresses these disparities, and that’s how our project evolved into equity in skin care.

I’m very lucky to have access to a dermatologist. And while there are a lot of people who do have access to one, either their derm isn’t Black nor are

Paloma Faith has candidly discussed why she decided to be very open about her second pregnancy, revealing she felt ‘fragile’ while carrying her first child.

The singer, 39, is expecting her second child with partner Lehman Lahcine after six rounds of IVF treatment, and spoke about her pregnancy on BBC Sounds Constantly Evolving podcast.
