I want to get on your radar an upcoming event with Dr. Ravi Chandra at the West Orange Avenue South San Francisco library, Monday June 18, 2018 at 6pm. It’s very timely to talk about mindfulness and how social networks effects our mental health.
Here is a description of the book and discussion that will take place at the author talk:

We are who happens to us, and what we make of the happening. Who do we become when we relate online? What happens to our minds and hearts? Ravi Chandra is a psychiatrist and Buddhist who values conversation, relationship, and their ultimate goals: love and the feeling of society. And he thinks we are in danger. Facebuddha: Transcendence in the Age of Social Networks, is a rich modern memoir of relationship online and off, a state-of-the-art exploration of psychological research about social media, and an engaging introduction to Buddhism.

Ravi Chandra, M.D. is a psychiatrist and writer in San Francisco, and a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. Facebuddha: Transcendence in the Age of Social Networks is his full-length nonfiction debut, and is the winner of the 2018 Nautilus Books Silver Award Winner for Religion/Spirituality of Eastern Thought category.
