    The Factors of Awakening

    With Christina Feldman and John Peacock

    The Buddha maintained that there were factors that already dwelt within our minds that could be harnessed to guide us towards the process of waking up. So, instead of having to develop aspects of our minds that were not present we engaged in the cultivation of seven important factors Already present that acted as a counterbalance to the destructive tendencies of mind. The factors to be identified and cultivated were those of mindfulness, investigation, energy, joy, tranquillity or relaxation, concentration and equanimity. We will examine the importance of these factors and their liberating qualities.

    CHRISTINA FELDMAN is a co-founder of Gaia House and a guiding teacher at Insight Meditation Society, Barre, Massachussetts. The author of a number of books, she has been teaching insight meditation retreats internationally since 1976. She is one of the teaching faculty of the CPP programme, dedicated to the study and application of the early teachings of the Buddha and is engaged in teaching the Buddhist psychological foundations of mindfulness to those training to teach mindfulness-based applications in England, Belgium and the Netherlands. Her most recent book Mindfulness: Ancient Wisdom Meets Modern Psychology, written with Willem Kuyken, was published in the summer of 2019.
