Equanimity is a balanced heart in the midst of change. The Buddha 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 makes it possible to respond to these experiences with less reactivity and with greater wisdom and compassion.
Engaging the teachings and practices of the Buddha, we will find ways to embrace the ups and downs of life with equanimity and touch into the deep joy, peace, and happiness within our own hearts that exist beyond mere circumstances.
During our time on this theme, we will explore different ways to know equanimity within, and for, ourselves. Sessions will include sitting and walking meditation, talks, discussion, Q&A, and small group/dyad practice. Meditative homework will be assigned each week and discussed as a vital aspect of each session.
Full and partial scholarships are available up to 72 hours before the start of the program. This program will not be recorded.
Note: The program will not meet on November 19th.
