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.

Attend some or all:

Week 1 – Doubt

Week 2 – Sloth + Torpor and Ill Will

Week 3 – Restlessness + Worry

Week 4 – Sensual Desire

All Registered participants will receive a Confirmation Email & Zoom Link via EventBrite.
