Quarantine Communication and Contemplation with Brigitte Jia


Brigitte Jia hosts a meditative hour that includes research on the neuroscience behind staying connected during the lockdown of the corona virus. Forced isolation studies conducted on animal species that have definitive social orders have returned results that evidence a hugely negative impact on subjects’ brains, cognition and physiological conditions that is replicable in human cohorts. Brigitte discusses long distance planning using Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, etc. If you’re looking for activities to engage in with long-distance friends and family during the quarantine period, you can try some of the following:

  • • Watching movies together via Netflix Party

  • • Hosting weekly remote “book clubs” as you both read from the same novel

  • • Holding weekly art sessions via Zoom

  • • Cooking or baking together in a video call

  • • Group Zoom study sessions for high school and college students

  • • “Ordering” dinner together - getting the same items from restaurants with similar offerings - and eating over video call

  • • If you’re a musician, playing duets and ensemble pieces over video

Excerpts from Richard Wagamese's Embers, a collection of calming prose meditations, is read to help ease stress during these trying times. Connect, communicate, celebrate.

Stay calm. Stay home. Stay safe.

“Life isn’t something you leave home to do. It’s what you accomplish within the walls of your haven. That’s what allows you to greet the world with an open heart and reach out and embrace living in all its richness, variety and staggering wonder.” - Richard Wagamese, Embers
