Equanimity: Deepening Composure Amidst the Worldly Winds
4 Mondays, September 14 - October 5; 7:00-8:30pm
Suggested contribution: $32-80 registration + teacher donation
The Buddha’s teachings on equanimity offer a training path to stop resisting the way things are, to discover greater spaciousness, and to understand more clearly that suffering and joy are as natural as night and day. While we cannot stop the waves or challenges of life, we can learn to ride them with increasing grace, dignity, compassion and wisdom. This class is an invitation to stop wishing for a different life, and to embrace the one we have with both arms and a less reactive, more peaceful heart. Selected readings, live and recorded dharma talks, and class discussion will all be a vital part of this class.
