Buddhist Studies Course - Seven Factors of Awakening (2017)

This course examines the Buddha's teachings on the seven factors of awakening: mindfulness, investigation, energy, rapture, tranquility, stability of mind, and equanimity. It is the development and balancing of these wholesome factors that set in motion insight and the release from all grasping and stress.
