During this half day retreat in Portland with Gen Khedrub, we will focus on developing the experience of equanimity, a warm and friendly feeling towards all living beings. Equanimity frees our mind from unbalanced attitudes such as anger, jealousy and fear — states of mind that disturb our inner peace. At present our mind is like a pendulum that swings back and forth between feeling close to some out of attachment and distant from others out of aversion; many times, this can be with the same person.
Equanimity is gold because it cannot be disturbed by the appearances and actions of others. Join us for these special Buddhist teachings and guided meditations to find greater inner peace and to bring more harmony to our relationships.
In person or online. This class will be delivered in-person at the Portland New Church at 302 Stevens Avenue, and it will be delivered online via Zoom. After registering you will receive instructions on how to join in the session online.
