2009-05-12 Factors That Support and Hinder Concentration 58:22
  Sally Clough Armstrong
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. Each of the jhanic factors actually balances and acts as an antidote to one of the hindrances. This talk looks at how to strengthen the jhanic factors, and use them skillfully as antidotes to the hindrances.

  Mark Coleman
As human beings, we move between the boundless, profound dimensions and the more mundane, worldly realms of body and mind. How do we in our practice cultivate an openness and receptivity to our boundless nature and not be so caught in our mind.

  Sharda Rogell
We hear the teachings of letting go (or letting be) yet when we try, we find how difficult that is. This talk explores what we are afraid of and the freedom waiting for us when we take the risk of looking at what’s true.
