2023-04-20 talk: pāramī of patience 29:23
Jill Shepherd
Patience is a quality that is undervalued in mainstream society with its emphasis on instant gratification, but in the Buddha's teachings, it's seen as the foremost of all the pāramī. Fortunately, it's something that can be trained in, initially by recognising where we're IMpatient, then making the effort to orient to steadiness and non-resistance.

2023-04-13 talk: pāramī of energy 28:47
Jill Shepherd
Exploring how energy needs to be guided by the previous pāramī, wisdom, to make sure that our energy is put to best use. Individually and collectively, we tend to use the resource of our own energy in the same way that we relate to other resources:over-exploiting it, until we’re depleted, exhausted, on the verge of burn-out. A wise relationship to energy includes paying attention to how we renew, refresh and resource ourselves, so that energy is available when we most need it.
