Equanimity: Breaking the “I-It” Relationship with Ourselves

24 Apr 2010

This afternoon we started with more cultivation of equanimity, specifically dispelling the “I-It” relationship with ourselves. First we had a great introduction to the concept, a couple of questions arose, and then the meditation (an extremely valuable practice).

Afterwards, Alan reflects on some of the incorrect “selling points” of buddhism that are sometimes portrayed in the media and as an effect of this modern (last 50 years) boom in Buddhism and other misconceptions. There was no Q&A, only one very long and simply astonishing lecture which I will upload as a bonus tomorrow! It will really be worth your time.

This great photo of our teaching hall Buddha was taken by Malcolm.
