Equanimity: The Balance Born of Wisdom with Sharon Salzberg

The Hivery is honored to welcome Sharon Salzberg, world-renowned teacher and NY Times bestselling author, to The Hivery stage, in a conversation about Equanimity. 

Equanimity is a spacious stillness of mind that allows us to be with things as they simply are. It does not imply indifference, however. Rather, when equanimity is present, it is the ground out of which sustained transformation can occur. It is also the foundation for the boundless arising of other qualities of the mind and heart, such as lovingkindness and compassion.

Through guided meditations, talks about the Buddha's teachings and Q&A periods, this workshop will explore the practice of upekkha, usually translated from the Pali as equanimity. Suitable for beginning and advanced meditation students and everyone in between.

Please note that this event is SOLD OUT, and door tickets will not be available. 

As seats are limited, advance online registration is required. $30 for members, $36 for non-members. The Hivery doors will open at 6:45pm and Sharon's talk will begin promptly at 7pm, so please plan your arrival accordingly!
