    Session 4

    26th April 2020

    The urgency of the heart (saṁvega) : Deepening the existential response: an enquiry into the qualities of motivation, non-distraction and heartful perseverance.

    With Akincano Weber and Yuka Nakamura

    In this session Yuka and Akincano reflect on the emotional and motivational aspect of walking the Path and invite participants to deepen their own enquiry into an existential response that Buddhist Teachings call “the urgency of the heart”: saṁvega. The experience referred to by this term is universal while its layered notions are hard to capture in translation with any single term. The teachers will explore the imagery and role of saṁvega in Early Buddhist Psychology and trace its transformation into the Path factors of motivation, non-distraction, release and heartful perseverance.
