Today's episode explores equanimity: what it is, how to cultivate and apply it in our lives, and it's foundations in the principles of non-violence. Through examining our response to suffering, both outside of us and within, we begin to peel back the many layers of our own responses. The roots of suffering are a false sense of separateness and equanimity, or the practice of peace, is the culmination of practicing compassion, loving-kindness, mindfulness, and light-heartedness. When we laugh, we're in equanimity, when we extend true compassion or love to others or our selves, we're in equanimity. Today, let's begin our journey on discovering how to do that together.
