Qualities cultivated by yoga - equanimity

Please click on the video below to watch, 'Qualities cultivated by yoga - equanimity'-on my YouTube Channel.

Please read the disclaimer on the blog before following these videos -

Equanimity is one of the four Brahmaviharas, or 'divine abodes' in Buddhism along with loving kindness, compassion and sympathetic joy.  They represent an ideal way of interacting with others in order to avoid suffering. Equanimity is not indifference but an ability to open the heart to compassion and loving kindness without causing suffering to self. It is often described as 'seeing things as they are' knowing that whether good or bad it will pass.  

In our video this week my intention is to relax the body and calm the mind in order to be better able to 'see things as they are'.  The meditation is one where we practice being with our emotions, whatever they happen to be.  Not turning away from them, pretending they do not exist nor judging them as 'good' or 'bad' but just allowing them.
