In meditation, there are difficult energies that can get in the way of our ability to see clearly. These well-known energies are familiar to all practitioners and are known as the Five Hindrances. They are desire, aversion, dullness, restlessness, and doubt.
Curiosity, interest, and mindfulness can uproot these difficult energies which cloud the heart and mind. Curiosity, interest, and mindfulness allow for contentment, loving kindness, aliveness, calm, and confidence to arise and take root in the heart. Just by being aware of the presence of a hindrance and seeing its nature, we can weaken its power over us. In our time together, we will learn how to recognize, understand, work with, and transform the Five Hindrances as we investigate these energies in sitting and in daily life practice.
This program is appropriate for both new and experienced meditators of all ages and all levels of experience. Each session will include meditation practice, teachings, and time for discussion and questions. Mindful homework between sessions is essential to this group. Everyone is welcome.
Full and partial scholarships are available up to 72 hours before the start of the program. This program will not be recorded.
