Gil Fronsdal has written an excellent book that has good chapters on generosity and virtue, Chapters 8, 9 and 10. You will also find chapters on lovingkindness, patience, wisdom.

Jennie suggests these talks she heard during her long retreat at IMS:


Joseph Goldstein -- Viriya (effort)

Carol Wilson – Resolution/Determination

…a fundamental support for the development of mind/heart, in and out of retreat.


Susie Harrington – Equanimity: Being at Rest in the Storms

A discussion about equanimity including what it is and is not, the contributing factors, the protection and stability it brings to our lives, and how we cultivate it.
