Webinar: Finding Equanimity in Challenging Times With Sharon Salzberg

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.

Renowned meditation teacher and author Sharon Salzberg will lead us in teaching and guided meditation to help us to cultivate equanimity. The webinar will include time for question & answer between Sharon and the audience.

This live webinar will be conducted on Zoom at 3:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, February 24. The webinar link will be emailed to participants within twenty-four hours of your registration. Registration for this live webinar closes at 2:00 p.m. ET on February 24. Please note that participation in the live webinar on Zoom is limited to the first 1,000 attendees.
