Equanimity is a quality of both love and wisdom, strength and awareness. It arises naturally through meditation practice, but is also sometimes misunderstood. Far from passivity, deep equanimity is an open steadfast heart, free from self-concern, enabling compassion to flow effortlessly.
In this day of practice, we invite equanimity as an experience and an attitude. Tuning into its value and flavour, can motivate our meditation practice, but also change our relationship with life. For it becomes embodied precisely through meeting the challenges and ups and downs we inevitably encounter.
The day includes periods of sitting, walking and standing meditation (or lying if your body needs to), and is suitable for all levels of experience.
