Overcoming HindrancesPosted by in News & Updates
Sangha Night Discussion June 17th (check Calendar for details)
Meditation exercises the mind so that we are better able to work with mental and physical hindrances. The hindrances are natural human tendencies that can lead to suffering when they dominate our experience. These hindrances are hatred or ill-will; desire for sense experience; restlessness and anxiety; sloth and torpor; doubt and indecision. The techniques that we learn for working with these in meditation also serve us in daily life allowing us more freedom and creativity in our response to challenges.
