Contentment

This Sunday, Payton led the sangha’s exploration of contentment in two parts.

The first part was a guided meditation by Rick Hanson, a psychologist and author of several books about contentment. The meditation is on Dharmaseed at the following link.

The second part was extracts from a dharma talk by Caroline Jones entitled “The practice of contentment”. Caroline quotes Ram Dass as once saying that contentment requires us to “plumb the depths of this moment”. She also quotes Christina Feldman’s classic question, “what in this moment is truly lacking?” Caroline’s talk is available at the following link.
