Cultivating the  Jhāna Factors is the second in a series of courses on the development of concentration, and will focus on cultivation of the five jhāna factors—directed and sustained attention, rapture, joy, equanimity, and one-pointed attention. These factors develop in the natural course of concentration. Each jhāna factor overpowers a particular hindrance, develops powerful skills, and enhances deep happiness as the mind prepares for meditative absorption.

This course will include recorded lectures and guided meditations, reading assignments, sutta study, discussion forums, audio conferences with the teacher, and a library of resources.
