Any time we practice mindfulness and wise attention, we are weakening the impact of the hindrances, and strengthening what are known as the five jhanic factors: meditative qualities that support the continuity and deepening of our meditation.

This talk looks at how to strengthen the jhanic factors, and use them skillfully as antidotes to the hindrances.
