A Series of Talks on the Bojjhangas being given during springtime and early summer 2020.
These talks take an illuminating deep dive into the development of samatha breathing mindfulness meditation practice.
Using each of the 7 factors of enlightenment, his personal experience as a lay practitioner, meditation teacher, monk and practising psychotherapist, Dr Paul Dennison uses ancient traditional Buddhist teachings and the latest neuroscientific research to illuminate his talks.
The heart of this lineage is the teaching and practice of the jhānas; both the rūpa (form) jhānas and the arūpa (formless) jhānas, but with several important supporting activities developed by the wide range of character types that have been key to developments over the last more than 55 years.
Each talk is followed by a question and answer session with an audience of samatha meditation practitioners.
