Steadying the Mind, Opening the Heart
2011-11-17 Steadying the Mind, Opening the Heart 50:20
Winnie Nazarko
Equanimity - that quality of mind which is balanced, steady, and non-reactive - is developed by learning to open skillfully to the full range of our experience. It is equanimity which allows the heart to feel safe enough to open to our own difficult states, and the difficult states of others. Deep equanimity is " the peace that passes understanding", a wisdom and equipoise which can hold it all.
