Deerhaven 2015 Sixth Night Dhamma Talk

by Peter Carlson on March 28, 2015

This recording followed a guided body sweep meditation and provided an opportunity for the participants to discuss the experience and receive suggestions about their practice.  Peter emphasized that the goal of this practice is to foster the maturing of vitakka and vicara (aiming and sustaining attention) into the awakening factor of investigation of mental phenomena.  The practice also fosters the cultivation of mindfulness, persistent Right Effort, and concentration.  These factors also foster the emergence of joy, tranquility and equanimity, the remaining factors of the seven awakening factors.  This posting will be followed by the recorded body sweep meditation.
