Expanding Equanimity: Southern Dharma Retreat with Cindy
August 4 – 8 
Registration opens June 1, 2021

According to yogic and Buddhist philosophy, there are four noble qualities, known in the Buddhist tradition as the Four Immeasurables: loving kindness, compassion, equanimity, and sympathetic joy. We are all born with the seeds of these traits, and with practice we can cultivate them to develop strength, steadiness, and openness in any situation—independent of external conditions.

Although these four qualities are inter-related, in this workshop we will explore Equanimity as a means to remain openhearted during times of tension and strife, whether personal or global. Equanimity is freedom from powerful reactions, positive or negative, to another person or an event—the ability to be even and open-minded toward everyone, no matter how they behave. This practice brings clarity to situations where we may be moved to react from passion or bias. Expanding our view to one of engaged impartiality allows us to respond to life’s challenges with wisdom—even at times with a sense of humor.

Over the four days, we’ll explore Equanimity through yoga poses, meditations, mindfulness exercises, and breath awareness.

The price and preliminary retreat schedule are for the at home version. In the event that Southern Dharma resumes on site programs, we’ll update the price, schedule, and the program description to reflect these changes, prior to registration opening.

Prices for virtual retreat:
$200.00 – Base
$280.00 – Supporter
$120.00 – Subsidized

Cindy will be assisted on this retreat by Tammy Kaousias.
