Equanimity is the personal attribute of steady composure and calm in the face of even difficult situations and life circumstances. In these unprecedented times, these tools are needed now more than ever.

Join us as we engage in practices to cultivate equanimity through meditation and yoga infused with Jewish wisdom teachings, text study, and periods of silence and song.
