Please see the update on Upaya Zen Center's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund: https://www.upaya.org/2015/05/nepal-earthquake-relief-fund-update-2-may-12/
Since the Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund was announced on Monday, April 27, a thousand friends and foundations have collectively contributed over $100,000. We thought it important to share with you some of the many reports from those who have received grants. Shares

A process for aid workers to develop resilience, while interacting with others: "GRACE: Tools for Building Capacity and Compassion" 

G: Gather attention on the inbreath; on the outbreath, drop into the body
R: Recall your intention; let your intention be a resource
A: Attune to yourself: body, heart, mind; attune to others: body, heart, mind
C: Consider what will serve: use your capacity for insight and intuition
E: Engage: take action; then end your interaction, reflecting on what transpired.
