Inherent States of Wellbeing

sublime states

In mindfulness based psychotherapy these inherent states of wellbeing are modelled in the embodiment of interconnection; belonging, attunement, acceptance and generosity.

In buddhism these states are the four sublime states, the brahmavihara, the divine abodes; LOVE (metta) COMPASSION (karuna) SYMPATHETIC JOY (mudita) EQUANIMITY (upekkha)
