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 it? Even more, how can we access it in our daily life, especially in times like these with so much uncertainty, fear, and sadness for the suffering in the world?

This day retreat will include meditation instructions, periods of silent sitting and walking meditation, and talks on the theme on developing equanimity, both in our formal practice and off the cushion.

Suitable for beginners and experienced students.
