Group Sitting and Conversation - "Equanimity"

  • Spaces - Wiehle Metro 1900 Reston Station Blvd Reston, VA 20190 USA (map)

This meeting is all about equanimity. It's a word that a lot of folks in the meditation and yoga community hear a lot about, and for good reason. Working toward goals or achievements requires a little bit (or a lot!) of struggle, and these activities can be challenging. It's easy to judge ourselves and beat ourselves up for not doing as well as we thought we would, which can further deflate our sense of worth. How do you weather through the storms that we encounter along the way? We're frequently told to "grin and bear it," persevere, and grit it out. I would offer that a kinder approach to achieving this is to work on your sense of equanimity. At this event, we'll talk a little bit about equanimity and how it can be applied to the challenges we face in our Northern Virginia community, and we'll get an opportunity to practice it with a quiet, semi-guided sitting.

We would love to see you there! As always, our events are entirely supported by donations from our community, and we graciously and thankfully accept donations of what you can offer ($5 suggested). The nearest free parking is in the commuter lot at the intersection of Sunrise Valley and Wiehle. There is paid parking in the garage below the building for $4.95.
