This week’s theme is: Contentment Blockers

 

The Buddha named five key ways access to contentment is blocked, and gave clear and profound teachings that break through to the peace, joy, and freedom they obscure.

Our hearts and minds can be pulled into a mission of greed, or sucked into aversion and rejection. We often swing between restlessness and sluggishness. It is normal to doubt the possibility of developing our experience in more free and delightful ways.

This week we will explore the possibilities available to us to calm habitual patterns and invite vibrant-tranquility.
