Discovering Equanimity in Turbulent Times

The focus of this week’s gathering was on Equanimity, sometimes referred to as the crown jewel of the four Bhrama Viharas. Denise drew on the insights of Christina Feldman for our discussion. In Christina’s book Boundless Heart, she states: “Like kindness, joy and compassion, equanimity is not a state but describes a relational way of being with life that rests upon a profound understanding of the intrinsic nature of change, unpredictability, and nonself that is at the heart of all events and experience.”  Clearly this is a matter deeply relevant to the rapid changes and unpredictability we are facing these days.
