July – Equanimity – Practicing for Calmness and Serenity in Life’s Challenges.
Equanimity is a mental calmness, composure and evenness of temper, especially in difficult situations. Meditation is an ideal practice to cultivate equanimity both on and off the cushion.

• Sleeping better and more deeply and waking feeling more rested.
