The Seven Factors of Awakening: The 4th Factor of Awakening - Joy & Rapture

The good news of our practice is that, as it deepens, we are bound to experience what in the Pali language is called piti - otherwise known as joy, happiness, delight, and even rapture. It’s an essential aspect of our journey, and we absolutely want to cultivate and nurture this sense of pleasure, and joy. Yet, it’s also vital that we learn how to skillfully work with it as it arises, so as to not become attached to it - which can take us in the wrong direction.

In this talk, Shell explores this 4th Factor of Awakening, and how we can both access it, and know when to wisely let it go."
