Mudita means appreciative or sympathetic joy and is the third of the four Brahmaviharas, the boundless qualities of the heart and mind. It stands for our ability to appreciate and delight in what is good and beautiful in our own being and in the world. It inspires and uplifts the heart and purifies it from unwholesome states.

2021-02-04 A Boundless Path of Insight 48:35
  Nathan Glyde
Saṅkhāra points out that in every moment of life there is a phenomena in attention and atmosphere of attention that is shaping it. This happens on a retreat and in the whole of our life. Is our meditation practice of deep listening and skilful cultivation only useful on the ‘cushion’ or is it a tool for awakening in very moment of life?

  Nathan Glyde
Exploring wisdom ways of looking to bring insight into our practice, where paying attention is the key. Seeing the inconstancy in all things opens the possibility for greater sensitivity. Seeing the rating of all things by the enjoyment or distress they might offer as just an opinion, rather than fact, opens the possibility of more ease and delight.

2021-01-29 Devotion and Discipline – Dhamma Protectors 47:34
  Ajahn Sucitto
The 5 indriya are known as the Dhamma protectors. The complimentary qualities of devotion and discipline balance our approach to cultivation. Recommended is collecting oneself in body which provides leverage on restraining the thinking mind. Embodied intelligence – the inner, esoteric Dhamma – can then be accessed.

  Ajahn Sucitto
There is fundamental puñña – value – in just being human. But citta doesn’t know its value, it gets lost in dreams, worries, passions, opinions. Collect oneself where body, thought and heart come together and investigate – where does the suffering end, where does fulfillment come from? Return to the place of innate value, stability, composure and clarity.

2021-01-23 Leben in Verbundenheit 54:41
  Yuka Nakamura
In des Sichtweise des Selbst erleben wir uns als getrennt von der Welt, abgeschnitten und einsam. Durch die Einsicht in die Verbundenheit und Bedingtheit erkennen wir hingegen, wie wir eingewoben sind in ein Gewebe von Ursachen und Wirkungen. Und indem wir die karmischen Gesetzmässigkeiten sehen, erkennen wir, wie unsere Entscheidungen und Handlungen Wirkungen auf uns selbst und andere haben.

2021-01-20 32 Parts of the Body—Large Intestines, Small Intestines, Stomach, Feces, Brain 34:01
  Bob Stahl
We are happy to announce a special opportunity to practice the 32 Parts of the Body meditation, which is rarely taught in the West. This practice deepens insight into impermanence and non-self by penetrating into the true nature and wonders of the body. We will also explore how the body interrelates with the four primary elements of earth (solidity), air (motion), fire (temperature), and water (liquidity). This methodical practice of the 32 Parts of the Body Meditation can build immense levels of concentration, potentialities for healing, and experience the taste of deep freedom and peace. This is the 15th year of offering this class at Insight Santa Cruz and it has been truly wonderful. People have frequently reported developing a whole new relationship to their bodies with greater wisdom and compassion. We will also be hopefully doing a tour of the Cabrillo Anatomy lab to get a deeper experience of the body.

2021-01-20 Practicing with Intentions 2: Developing Intentions and Vows to Guide Practice in One's Communities, Society, and World 65:32
  Donald Rothberg
After a review of the January 6 session on practicing with intentions in individual formal and daily life practice, and on Inauguration Day, we explore practicing in more community, social, and collective settings. In this context, we point to the importance of combining i"inner" and "outer" practice, and to two possible inspirations: (1)the figure of the bodhisattva who combines awakening and helping others, and (2) the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a kind of bodhisattva. On this basis, there is a short period in which those present are asked to write their own intentions and/or vows to guide their responses to the current needs and crises of our world. Some share their writing!
