Equanimity (upekkhā) is a remarkable strength. We can all benefit from inner calmness of mind, level-headedness, an unprejudiced attitude and the serenity that goes with these – especially in challenging times.
Buddhist traditions see equanimity not merely as a stoic imperturbability, but as the brightest note of a composed, sensitive and yet fearless heart. This weekend explores some of its facets and is dedicated to practising the upekkhā state of the heart.
Both days will include guided and silent meditation in sitting, standing and walking. Short presentations, inspirational references, practical guidance, exchanges and group discussion.
