The Seven Factors of Awakening

With Christina Feldman and Jaya Rudgard

Many Buddhist teachings and practices focus on difficult states of mind such as anger, craving, or jealousy. Yet it's also extremely important to acknowledge and cultivate positive mental qualities. The seven factors of awakening are mindfulness, investigation, energy, joy, tranquility, concentration, and equanimity. It is the development and enjoyment of these deeply wholesome qualities that gives our hearts the strength to let go.
