Event Details

Finding Balance in Challenging Times

with Sharon Salzberg

Friday Evening is SOLD OUT – No Walk-ins

Registration is still open for Saturday only.

Equanimity is about meeting life, no matter what arises, with an open and responsive heart. It is a steadiness of mind and a calm understanding that allows us to be with the constantly changing and shifting landscape of our world. Equanimity does not mean indifference or apathy, rather it is a spaciousness of mind that empowers lovingkindness and compassion and supports them in action.

This is a practice for difficult times like ours—one of conflict, frustration, and uncertainty. Suitable for both new and experienced meditators, this workshop includes guided meditations, talks and time for questions and answers.


Friday: 7-9pm

Saturday: 10am-5pm
