Muditā: Appreciative Joy

With Kim Allen recorded on November 20, 2022.

Of the four traditional heart qualities in Buddhism, appreciative joy – muditā – gets less attention than lovingkindness (mettā), compassion (karuṇā), or equanimity (upekkhā). But the cultivation of sincere joy at the success of another greatly enriches our well-being and happiness. We will explore this powerful form of joy together, as well as what blocks it, through practice and contemplation. Bring your whole heart!
