In meditation, there are difficult energies that can get in the way of our ability to see clearly. These energies are known as the five hindrances. They are desire, aversion, dullness, restlessness and doubt.
Curiosity, interest and mindfulness can uproot the difficult energies that cover over the heart and mind allowing for contentment, loving kindness, aliveness, calm and confidence. 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, and transform the hindrances as we investigate these energies in sitting and 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.
