This Sunday, guest speaker Walt Opie will join us. He plans to talk about how the quality of equanimity supports our mindfulness by helping us stay non-reactive and balanced in the face of seeing what's difficult. If we had no equanimity at all, it would be very difficult to stay mindful for any length of time.
Sharon Salzberg refers to equanimity as the "secret ingredient of mindfulness" which allows for more spaciousness. What does she mean by this at a practical level? How can we cultivate greater equanimity and therefore greater moment-to-moment awareness which leads to freedom?
Come join the sangha to explore this topic with Walt, and practice together.
