Equanimity in Difficult Times (Live Webcast)

Monday Night at Spirit Rock: Meditation and Dharma Talk

How can we find the strength to face difficult times and the balance to respond wisely? Equanimity is balance born of wisdom; it’s our heart and mind’s capacity to roll with the inevitable challenges and changes of life without taking it personally, without falling into despair or hopeless. Rather than a bland state of neutrality, or a cold state of indifference, equanimity gives us a wide space to feel the whole range of human experience, and the poise to act with wisdom and care rather than reactivity.

Whether it’s personal loss and difficulty, challenges in relationship, or the immense pain our world is facing, equanimity is the indispensable quality that allows us to meet life with grace and balance, and at times to keep going in the face of extraordinary hardship.

Join Oren for an evening of meditation and Dharma teaching at Spirit Rock's weekly Monday Night sitting group. The program will include a 30-40 guided meditation, followed by a 15-minute break, a Dharma talk and time for Q &A.
