2021-12-01 The Seven Factors of Awakening 2: Cultivating Mindfulness and Equanimity in Formal Meditation and in Daily Life 69:14
Donald Rothberg
Our practice aims at awakening (and awakened beings help others awaken). We review briefly the nature of awakening for the Buddha and later Buddhist traditions, and the centrality of the teaching of the Seven Factors of Awakening. We then explore the two foundational factors--mindfulness and equanimity--identifying their core qualities, as well as how to practice to cultivate each of these factors, both in formal meditation and in the movement of daily life. There is a talk and then discussion.

Gulwinder Singh
on the last night of the retreat we reflected on the path of practice, the fruits that spontaneously emerge from practice, how are actions of body speech and mind, the Buddha called karma, influences everything. the talk ends with some reflections on equanimity and the skillful work we can do to balance our practice with where we are in terms of the three marks of existence.

Dawn Mauricio
The state of the world is getting more intense, more extreme, more divided. It is undeniable that we need to do things differently, including thinking we can do it all on our own.
