#16 Sympathetic Joy Guided Practice
Apr 23, 2020
Jennifer O'Sullivan & Sarah Jane Shangraw

Mudita, or sympathetic joy, is the third in the series of the four most highly regarded qualities, or “sublime states,” in Buddhism: metta (loving-kindness), karuna (compassion), mudita (sympathetic joy) and upeksa (equanimity). 

Mudita is a potent practice that helps us experience joy even when life feels difficult and warm feelings are hard to access. 

In this guided meditation, Sarah Jane helps you bring forth feelings of joy so they will be more likely to arise spontaneously in daily life.

Skillful Means Podcast offers these guided practices to help you deepen into your yoga and mindfulness journey.
