James Baraz's Dharma Talks
James Baraz

2008-03-20 Buddhadharma As A Path Of Happiness - part 2: Mindfulness 54:46
This is the second of a series based on cultivating the wholesome states that I share in my Awakening Joy Class. This first week we’ll explore the theme of Mindfulness as a path for well-being. We will share some practical exercises to use in daily life as well as understand why mindfulness is called by the Buddha “the most direct way to overcome sorrow and despair and realize the highest happiness.”
