Gladdening the Mind

I’m back now from the 10-day Concentration Retreat at Spirit Rock (which was difficult and wonderful) and which has left me with a deep sense of gratitude for the Buddha’s teachings and a profound sense of respect — and love — for the teachers (especially Phillip Moffitt) whose kindness and generosity, not to mention wisdom, patience and good humor, was a gift beyond compare.

The talks from the retreat are available on DharmaSeed. (Click here.) They’re all wonderful, but for something really special, listen to Phillip’s talk on The Variety of Samahdi Experience, which includes a 10-minute guided meditation on Gladdening the Mind (beginning at about 55 minutes into the talk).
