Mindfulness and the Five Hindrances
with Kathleen Metzker
Saturday, April 27
1:00 - 4:00
Mindfulness (Vipasana) Meditation explores the qualities of mind that challenge our ability to maintain presence and concentration. In this workshop we will review and explore in practice how these qualities of mind show up on and off the cushion. Learning to become familiar with these mind states deeps our understanding of our own complexities and welcomes compassion and openness to the limitless possibilities of our inner and outer worlds. There will be time for instruction, plenty of practice and some reflection. Please bring a pillow, blanket and journal.
