    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Nirmala Werner – Week of Jan 23 – 27, 2023

Awakening requires that we soften…

  • How to Find Equanimity Amidst Upheaval

    We are deeply habituated to seek equanimity as if it’s a state to be found. In times of crisis, stakes are high. We try harder. The more desperate we feel, the more effort we put in. In this striving, we forget to ask: “Who is it that’s striving?” This question isn’t about finding the right…
