Online daylong with James

Equanimity or Upekkha is a highly valued quality in Buddhist teachings. It is one of the Four Divine Abodes (along with loving-kindness, compassion and joy), one of the Seven Factors of Enlightenment, one of the Ten Paramitas. When highly developed it is the precursor to the experience of awakening. But what is equanimity? How can we cultivate it in our meditation practice? Even more, how can we access it in our daily life, especially in times like these with so much uncertainty, fear and sadness over the suffering in the world?

Our theme for this daylong, which will include silent periods of sitting and walking, will be on developing equanimity in our formal practice. In addition, we will explore various aspects of equanimity that can be pragmatically applied to our life off the cushion. Suitable for new and experienced practitioners.

This event is freely offered. There will be an opportunity to contribute dana (offer donations) to James at the end of the retreat.
