Public Talk – Anxiety and Equanimity: a Zen perspective on living a life of wholeness.

February 2 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Life is full of obvious and subtle forms of anxiety. We tend to consider these feelings as the opposite of equanimity… and then try to avoid our discomfort. In this evening talk, Hogen Sensei suggests the possibility of a fresh perspective on our suffering, through the willingness to experience all mental states with an open heart. Letting go of our avoidance of anxiety, we discover that equanimity co-exists with the complete spectrum of our feelings. This is the realisation of countless spiritual practitioners. Hogen Sensei’s talk is suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners, and includes time for questions and discussion. Entry by donation/koha.
