Being Present: Working With the Hindrances (Half-Day Retreat)

  • Third Root Community Health Center 380 Marlborough Rd Brooklyn, NY, 11226 United States (map)

2pm-6pm, Saturday Dec 13

Third Root Community Health Center

380 Marlborough Rd. Brooklyn, NY

Co-teaching with Luke Mayton.

Join us for an afternoon of practice with guidance on working with the most common blocks to being present: sensual desire, ill-will, sloth and torpor, restlessness and remorse, and doubt. We will explore the sutta of the Five Hindrances and learn how to work with the challenges that arise. The day will consist of talks, periods of silent meditation practice, walking meditation, gentle mindful movement, and relational practice.

Open to all--no previous experience with meditation necessary.
