Equanimity is the ground of wisdom and an essential characteristic of genuine compassion. Learn why compassion is incomplete if not extended to everyone.

Juli – Bookkeeper

The meditation practice is very freeing. I can just be where I am in the moment. In contrast to so many practices I’ve tried, it encompasses how to deal with emotions with a greater awareness of the human condition.
