Description:
Through guided meditations, talks about the Buddha’s teachings and Q&A periods, this workshop will explore the practice of upekkha, usually translated from the Pali as equanimity. Equanimity can be described as balance: a spacious stillness that allows us to accept things as they are. The power of this balance is that it allows us to avoid both apathy and indifference on the one hand, and acute reactivity on the other. Sharon Salzberg offers practical and empowering tools to cultivate equanimity when it is most needed. Learn how to cultivate clarity and compassion through different mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation techniques.

This program will be video and audio recorded for an online audience. By attending, you consent to being videotaped and included in the program recording.
