Trust the Struggles: Making Peace with the Five Hindrances to Mindfulness

with Melvin Escobar

Mondays Feb 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th 6:30 – 8:30 PST

Why’s it so hard to meditate!? This question is as old as the practice. Join us for this class series that gets to the root of our struggles: The Five Obstacles. We’ll learn ways to work with these “hindrances” guided by Buddhist teachings, contemporary psychological frameworks and an understanding of structural oppression. Through talks, interactive exercises, stationary and gentle moving meditation, and recommendations for home practice, participants will gain awareness on how to use each of the five obstacles as gateways to deepen our practice.

Space is limited and registration is requested.
