Seattle Insight • EQUANIMITY FOR CHALLENGING TIMES • Weekend Retreat

July 14 @ 9:00 am - July 15 @ 4:30 pm

Join Sharon Salzberg for a two day non-residential weekend retreat at the Seattle Insight Meditation Society. Through guided meditations, talks about the Buddha’s teachings and Q&A periods, this workshop will explore the practice of upekkha, usually translated from the Pali as equanimity.

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.

Sharon Salzberg offers practical and empowering tools to cultivate equanimity when it is most needed. Learn how to cultivate clarity and compassion through different mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation techniques. When true equanimity is present, it is the ground from which resilience is strengthened so that sustained transformation can occur.

This is a non-residential retreat. Each day of this retreat begins at 9:00am and ends at 4:30pm.
