2011-03-10 Overview of the 7 Factors of Awakening 52:01
  James Baraz
The 7 Factors of Awakening are the Buddha’s list of qualities that need to be developed in order to fully awaken. This eight-week series begins with an overview of all 7 Factors followed by a discussion of each individually in greater depth over the coming weeks. Besides exploring them theoretically, James encourages us to take them on as practices as we go through the weeks seeing how we can consciously cultivate them and bring them into our daily lives. The seven factors are:
  1. Mindfulness
  2. Interest/investigation
  3. Energy/effort
  4. Joy/rapture
  5. Calm/tranquility
  6. Concentration
  7. Equanimity
