Developing the Strong and Gentle Heart: Spacious Equanimity (Online talk only)

Friday, January 15, 2021 - 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

With Rebecca Bradshaw

Prerequisite: Beginner

The Friday evening program (7-8:30pm) will feature a sitting, dharma talk, and Q & A on the theme below.  The Saturday retreat (9am-12:30pm) will delve deeper into this theme.

Continuing our exploration of the Brahmaviharas, we come to the relaxed and spacious heart of equanimity. Equanimity is the great balancer to the heartwarming practices of loving kindness, compassion, and appreciative joy. This practice explores letting go of any contraction or demands that the heart has accumulated during the strengthening of our connections with others. By releasing our expectations and efforts to control, we encounter our easeful heart, and find ourselves opening more fully to others and to life itself. Together we will explore what equanimity is, what it isn’t, and how to strengthen it.
