Finding Equanimity – a virtual retreat with Shinzen Young
Saturday, November 18th, 2023. 10am-1pm on ZOOM
Join the Consciousness Explorers Club for a three hour virtual meditation retreat with Shinzen Young, the founder of Unified Mindfulness and CEC’s much-loved mentor. In this experiential workshop, we’ll take a deep dive into equanimity, one of the foundational skills of mindfulness. Structured as a half-day retreat, there will be a series of guided and silent meditation sits, interspersed with periods of Q and A.
Shinzen‘s teachings reveal a gift for insight through unexpected analogies, illustrations, and humour, and he merges scientific clarity with a rare grasp of source-language teachings, East and West. Don’t miss this opportunity to sit and dialogue with a well-respected mindfulness authority.
This online event is being offered on a “pay what you’re able to” model, with a wide sliding scale to accomodate all income ranges. This is a fundraiser for both the CEC and Shinzen’s Community for Mindful Living – funds will go toward helping both organizations expand programming and extend the benefits of practice to more people.The CEC is a registered not-for-profit with the mission of making meditation and personal growth practices fun and accessible to all.
Zoom link for the workshop will be provided upon registration. An audio recording of the session will be shared with registered participants after the event, for those unable to attend the live retreat.
