In this daylong, we will explore and cultivate upekkha, or equanimity, one of the Brahma Viharas, four beautiful expressions of the heart. True equanimity comes from a deep and profound acceptance of things as they are, but it is not cold or apathetic detachment from experience. It can support us being engaged in the world without reactivity and causing harm, and is also a deep meditative state. We begin to understand and accept ourselves and the world, and from that place of acceptance, we can be truly engaged and authentic. The day will include guided meditations, dharma talks and reflections on the practice of equanimity.

Dana for the teacher and rent. Marin Sangha charges no fee for events. Since the time of the Buddha, there has been an interdependence between those who offer the teachings and those who receive them. Your generosity (Dana) is deeply appreciated.

Please bring a lunch. Chairs will be provided, but bring cushions and other sitting equipment if you need them.

There are no pre-requisites for this retreat, so please bring a friend!

Dear Marin Sangha Members

Our beloved teacher Shahara Godfrey is in need of financial and loving support. Her Multiple Myeloma has returned, and she is, once again, undergoing treatment. We would like to send a donation from all of Marin Sangha. We will leave a box or basket at the back table on April 15, 22, and 29. At the end of the three weeks the money will be sent on to Shahara.

If you would prefer to donate privately here are links to her gofundme and caringbridge accounts:

Thank you for your support
