Insight and the Art of Equanimity

In insight meditation, we practice moment-to-moment observation of our experiences through an open, precise and accepting awareness. In the practice of equanimity, we develop a non-reactive and engaged mind. Together, these two practices provide a stable foundation for investigating attitudes that condition understanding. Momentum in insight practice and the art of equanimity foster clarity and confidence from which we can live with wisdom and compassion. This course is suitable for beginners and experienced meditators; a warm welcome is extended to all.
