The seven factors of awakening are valuable in daily life, as well as
when we meditate. They are: mindfulness, investigation, energy, joy,
calm, concentration, and equanimity. Together, they support
whole-heartedness and bring balance to our hearts and minds as we
navigate the flow of life, both “on the cushion” and in our involvements
and interactions with our families and communities. In this class we
will consider what we mean by “awakening,” and will explore each factor,
their interrelationship, and ways to notice and nurture the factors in
our practice and in our lives.
Candace Cassin has
been practicing Insight Meditation since 1983, and teaching at IWM since
2008. Her personal practice and teaching approach are rooted in the
classical teachings, and she is especially interested in the integration
of insight, wisdom, and compassion in everyday life, both on the
personal and social levels. In her former incarnations she worked in the
disability field and as a hospice chaplain.
