Equanimity: Finding Balance in Difficult Times 

Equanimity, or upekkha, is a highly valued quality in Buddhist teachings. It is a Divine Abode, a Factor of Enlightenment, and the precursor to the experience of awakening. But what is equanimity? How can we cultivate and access it in our daily life, especially in times of uncertainty, fear, and sadness for the suffering in the world? Explore these contemplations during this daylong retreat, which will include meditation instructions, periods of silent sitting and walking meditation, and Dharma talks.
