The Buddha taught about many forms of joy as both the path of practice and its fruit. In this session, we’ll explore the practice and discipline of cultivating and savoring joy in our life and our practice. Joy is an important balancing factor as we honestly face the suffering of the world and commit to training our minds and hearts.

Daily Meditation Recordings, with Nathan Glyde – Week of June 14, 2021
This week’s theme is: Contentment Blockers

Faith: Cultivating an Undivided Life
May 22, 2022
