The Buddha has described the ways we are pushed around by the conditions in life as the teaching of the Eight Worldly Winds. These “winds” include praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and pain, and fame and disrepute. The cultivation of equanimity -- a balanced heart in the midst of change -- makes it possible to respond to these experiences with less reactivity and with greater wisdom and compassion.
This program is appropriate for both new and experienced meditators. Sessions will include sitting and walking meditation periods, talks, time for discussion and questions, and homework.
