UNBALANCED WORLD, BALANCED MIND: Meditation for Difficult Times*
A Half-Day Retreat with Chris Crotty
Saturday, February 16, 1-4:30pm ~ The world is often not as we want it to be, and on a personal level, each of us faces the continuous challenge of sustaining well-being within a constantly changing set of conditions in our work, family, health, and relationships. The Buddha's teachings propose that through meditation practice, we can achieve equanimity, a mind that remains balanced when the world is out of balance. Is this a real possibility for us? If so, how? This half-day retreat will explore the Buddha's teachings on equanimity through meditation practices that are relevant to our personal lives today. Open to all levels of experience preregister here
