Oftentimes when a hindrance arises in our practice, we can view it as a cue to stop – to turn away from or to force our minds to have a different experience.
We might notice that one of our core challenges, the underlying quality of our practice, can also be a door to deepening our practice.
These typically manifest as one of the five obstructions or hindrances of the mind – greed or desire; aversion or ill-will; sloth; restlessness; and doubt. When there is clarity of heart, these hindrances can actually become a portal to wisdom.
In this 3-hour Day of Practice, Leslie Booker will guide us in looking at these obstructions of minds as a way to have a more intimate relationship with ourselves, and understand better how we are wired.
Together we will discover the lessons these hindrances have to teach us, as well as how we may care for others with this wisdom at the top of our hearts.
We’ll be exploring these teachings together through listening to the Dharma, contemplating the teachings of these portals to wisdom, guided movement and meditation practices, journaling and relational practices.
