The meaning we place on words has a tremendous influence on how we experience our condition. Challenging others' perceptions of our condition is very important to experiencing a paradigm shift in the way we view our condition and our approach to living with it. Unlinking symptoms from our reactions to them cannot be accomplished without challenging the definitions of mania and depression. In this lesson learn to help others and ourselves re-define what this condition means to us and the world.

Equanimity means even-minded under all conditions. The ultimate goal of Bipolar IN Order is achieving this state in our lives more and more often. Until we can access it even in the most difficult times.


When in equanimity, our wisdom guides all of our actions and we stop seeing one state as more valuable than any other. Our preferences cease to exist and we feel blissful in all circumstances. Central to my beliefs is that every moment of our lives is an opportunity to be in bliss, but we avoid those with the most potential because we think that the difficult experiences need to be removed first. Learn how adopting this principle can change your perception of your states and condition.

What You Will Learn

--To recognize the value of all life experiences.

--To make space for equanimity and allow wisdom to guide how you respond to your states.

--To be even-minded under all circumstances.

--To understand equanimity and how to achieve it.
