Menla Mountain Retreat CenterJoin Sharon Salzberg and Robert Thurman and others for this New Year’s retreat. Through guided meditations, talks about the Buddha’s teachings, and Q&A periods, we will explore the practice of upekkha, usually translated from the Pali as equanimity. 

Additional retreat offerings include expert Iyengar yoga instruction each morning with Carolyn Christie and Brooke Myers, chanting (kirtan) with Lily Cushman, qi gong instruction with Paul Bloom, and astrology classes with master astrologer and astronomer Alexander Mallon.

Equanimity can be described as balance: a spacious stillness that allows us to accept things as they are. The power of this balance is that it allows us to avoid both apathy and indifference on the one hand, and acute reactivity on the other. This can be most helpful when we are facing challenging times in our lives, especially the challenges that we are deeply invested in. Often though, such moments in life also tend to be the ones where equanimity is most out of reach. When true equanimity is present, it is the ground out of which resilience is strengthened so that sustained transformation can occur.
