184 - Emotional Equanimity and Antifragility

Secular Buddhism

25-09-2023 • 21 mins

In this episode of the Secular Buddhism Podcast, Noah delves into the concept of emotional equanimity, likening it to the tale of monk Sona who learned to maintain a balanced approach to life's challenges, akin to finely tuning a musical instrument. Drawing from the Mangala Sutta and Nassim Nicholas Taleb's "Anti-Fragile," the episode emphasizes the value of antifragility, where challenges can enhance our emotional resilience, much like an astronaut needing physical stress to prevent muscle atrophy in space. Noah offers five tips for practicing emotional equanimity and underscores that true growth arises from facing, not avoiding, life's storms.
