The Buddha described the many different natural landscapes that the meditator might drop into when they come to practice. There are beautiful landscapes when the practice is feeling easy and transcendent. And, then there are the mundane or difficult landscapes when our meditation can feel like an inglorious struggle. In dhamma practice, when we become intimate with the territory we are on and learn how to proceed even when the practice isn’t easy, it gives us assuredness and a way forward.
Therefore, it is vital to become deeply familiar with the Buddha’s teaching on the Five Hindrances. They include such ordinary frustrations as worry, anger, sleepiness, wanting, and self-doubt. Whenever our practice does not feel effortless, we can be sure that we are in the territory of the Five Hindrances. No problem! We can learn how to recognize and navigate this landscape in a way that brings us to clarity, serenity, and insight. When we do, our efforts will be fruitful.
This program is appropriate for both new and experienced meditators. Our time together will include sitting meditation with instructions, talks and time for discussion and questions. Join us for a day of fruitful learning. Everyone is welcome.
Full and partial scholarships are available.
