By the time of this Wake Up Call, we’d all be so careful for so long. It had been exhausting but also, safe. The question was, how were people feeling about venturing out? Some days I had the balance, the equilibrium, to do it. Sometimes not. Equanimity helped.

Equanimity can support openness to experience: the experience of connecting and of retreat; the experience of suffering, and of joy. But equanimity is a practice. On this Wake Up Call, take a look at an old, trusted tool, S.T.O.P., and see how it can support equanimity practice, and help us all to re-learn how to stand together, in the fire of things.
