About the Event

‘Equanimity is calamity's medicine’ – saying attributed to Publilius Syrus (85–43 BC)

Equanimity is a term that is little used in many languages, whereas there is a lot of information about this (re)balancing quality in Buddhist psychology, where it is called one of the four ’heavenly abidings’ or brahmaviharas. In the secular Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living or MBCL training, we have integrated these four relational virtues as ‘the four friends for life'.

In this webinar, we will explore in theory and practice what equanimity means, how it can express itself in different ways, and how we can develop equanimity to ourselves and to others - in the midst of all the vicissitudes we can experience as a human being.

This event was offered in collaboration with the Mindfulness Network Community Friends (MNCF) - an initiative to engage the wider mindfulness community and reach new audiences. Led by a Committee of Volunteers, supported by the Mindfulness Network, we work together to run a programme of donation-based events and inspiring content. The Committee ensures that the MNCF can best serve everyone by providing opportunities to practice and learn together.
