    Capping off 2020: Equanimity of Mind and Heart with Diana Clark, Ying Chen, Kim Allen and David Lorey

    Study and Practice Series:
    Capping off 2020: Equanimity of Mind and Heart

    Equanimity (upekkha) is a beautiful balance and steadiness of heart and mind that appears in several Buddhist lists and is a “capstone” to many practices. The year 2020 has certainly provided plentiful opportunities to cultivate this powerful quality. Join us in exploring several facets of upekkha as this unusual year draws to a close. 

    More accessible than many people realize, equanimity supports ease both on and off the cushion. In this 3-session series (Tues, Thurs, Sat), we’ll use similes to explore upekkha as a relational quality (Brahma-vihara), a factor of awakening, and a component of samadhi. Sessions will include meditation, teachings, Q&A, and small-group discussion. Note that the third (Saturday) session is extended (2.5 hours). This is a Sati Center event.

    Dates and Times:

    • Tuesday Dec 15 (8:30-10:00am PST), 
    • Thursday Dec 17 (8:30-10:00am PST), 
    • Saturday Dec 19, 2020 (8:30-11:00am PST).

    Note the longer session on Saturday Dec 19th.

    Promoting Unity: Becoming aware of and working with habits that divide us

    Promoting Unity:   Becoming aware of and working with habits that divide us

    An 8-week facilitated book group program using Deep Diversity: Overcoming Us vs. Them by Shakil Choudhury
    With Andrea Fella and IMC Dharma Leaders
    Jan 24 – March 21
    Registration Required: opens December 7th, closes January 11th(details below)

    The stress of division is very obvious in our country and world right now.  Much of this division is a result of deep habits that are conditioned in all of us.  These habits promote an “us vs. them” framework, a key root of division. Shakil Choudhury’s book provides a modern perspective on overcoming this framework. We will also explore Buddhist teachings and practices that support letting go of these divisive habits.

    The program will consist of large and small group meetings.  There will be eight weekly small group meetings (with about 8 people) facilitated by IMC Local Dharma Leaders, which will allow an intimate conversation about the material in the book.  Andrea Fella will facilitate three large group meetings that will explore Buddhist teachings that can support us in this work.

    As part of the eightfold path, the Buddha encouraged us to refrain from divisiveness and instead, promote unity and concord. By engaging in this work, we can bring our practice into the world to help heal painful divisions.  

    Program Structure

    3 Large group Zoom meetings: 
    Sunday, Jan 24th 1-3pm
    Sunday Feb 21st, 1-3pm
    Sunday March 21st, 1-3pm

    Promoting Unity: Becoming aware of and working with habits that divide us

    Promoting Unity:   Becoming aware of and working with habits that divide us

    An 8-week facilitated book group program using Deep Diversity: Overcoming Us vs. Them by Shakil Choudhury
    With Andrea Fella and IMC Dharma Leaders
    Jan 24 – March 21
    Registration Required: opens December 7th, closes January 11th(details below)

    The stress of division is very obvious in our country and world right now.  Much of this division is a result of deep habits that are conditioned in all of us.  These habits promote an “us vs. them” framework, a key root of division. Shakil Choudhury’s book provides a modern perspective on overcoming this framework. We will also explore Buddhist teachings and practices that support letting go of these divisive habits.

    The program will consist of large and small group meetings.  There will be eight weekly small group meetings (with about 8 people) facilitated by IMC Local Dharma Leaders, which will allow an intimate conversation about the material in the book.  Andrea Fella will facilitate three large group meetings that will explore Buddhist teachings that can support us in this work.

    As part of the eightfold path, the Buddha encouraged us to refrain from divisiveness and instead, promote unity and concord. By engaging in this work, we can bring our practice into the world to help heal painful divisions.  

    Program Structure

    3 Large group Zoom meetings: 
    Sunday, Jan 24th 1-3pm
    Sunday Feb 21st, 1-3pm
    Sunday March 21st, 1-3pm

    8 Weekly small group Zoom meetings:
    90-minute weekly meetings between January 24 and March 21.

    A variety of times will be offered.  Select one when you register.

    Registration
    Space is limited and the event requires registration  Details on how to register will be posted here before December 7th.  You will be asked to provide your email and a physical address so we can mail a copy of the book to you.  Zoom link details will be sent to your email address.

    Promoting Unity: Becoming aware of and working with habits that divide us

    Promoting Unity:   Becoming aware of and working with habits that divide us

    An 8-week facilitated book group program using Deep Diversity: Overcoming Us vs. Them by Shakil Choudhury
    With Andrea Fella and IMC Dharma Leaders
    Jan 24 – March 21
    Registration Required: opens December 7th, closes January 11th(details below)

    The stress of division is very obvious in our country and world right now.  Much of this division is a result of deep habits that are conditioned in all of us.  These habits promote an “us vs. them” framework, a key root of division. Shakil Choudhury’s book provides a modern perspective on overcoming this framework. We will also explore Buddhist teachings and practices that support letting go of these divisive habits.

    The program will consist of large and small group meetings.  There will be eight weekly small group meetings (with about 8 people) facilitated by IMC Local Dharma Leaders, which will allow an intimate conversation about the material in the book.  Andrea Fella will facilitate three large group meetings that will explore Buddhist teachings that can support us in this work.

    As part of the eightfold path, the Buddha encouraged us to refrain from divisiveness and instead, promote unity and concord. By engaging in this work, we can bring our practice into the world to help heal painful divisions.

    Promoting Unity: Becoming aware of and working with habits that divide us

    Promoting Unity:   Becoming aware of and working with habits that divide us

    An 8-week facilitated book group program using Deep Diversity: Overcoming Us vs. Them by Shakil Choudhury
    With Andrea Fella and IMC Dharma Leaders
    Jan 24 – March 21
    Registration Required: opens December 7th, closes January 11th(details below)

    The stress of division is very obvious in our country and world right now.  Much of this division is a result of deep habits that are conditioned in all of us.  These habits promote an “us vs. them” framework, a key root of division. Shakil Choudhury’s book provides a modern perspective on overcoming this framework. We will also explore Buddhist teachings and practices that support letting go of these divisive habits.

    The program will consist of large and small group meetings.  There will be eight weekly small group meetings (with about 8 people) facilitated by IMC Local Dharma Leaders, which will allow an intimate conversation about the material in the book.  Andrea Fella will facilitate three large group meetings that will explore Buddhist teachings that can support us in this work.

    As part of the eightfold path, the Buddha encouraged us to refrain from divisiveness and instead, promote unity and concord. By engaging in this work, we can bring our practice into the world to help heal painful divisions.
