2021-07-08 Equanimity Brahma Vihara 45:36
Tempel Smith
Opening the heart and balancing with wisdom, the equanimity sacred dwelling becomes established as we relax the tightness of our preferences to be more intimate with how the world actually is moment to moment. Equanimity brahma vihara is a flow of sacred caring without reactivity or agitation to complex truths. Starting with the open heart we have in loving the natural world, we progress to bring loving equanimity to our personal lives. Through caring equanimity, we can discover how clinging to our preferences blocks deeper connection.

2021-07-08 Supports for Steadying the mind: The Jhana Factors 56:20
Sally Armstrong
There are five factors that are supported for deepening concentration, known as the jhana factors. These factors are developed in any kind of intensive meditation practice but are particularly supportive of the development of concentration. They also serve to counterbalance the hindrances. When the hindrances are not active, the mind and heart can be steady and open.

Bonnie Duran
Metta/Lovingkindness practice strengthens wholesome mental factors and allows us to see more clearly our negative mental factors. Seeing more clearly an important source of our suffering, hate/aversion, we are able to work more directly for our own and others' happiness.
