Help with the Hindrances

The Buddha outlined ten hindrances to awakening.

Please join us for a 20-25 minute silent sit at Lake Harriet United Methodist Church starting at 6:30PM. Then, there will be a short topic share on the ten hindrances. There is a $5.00 request for donations to help the group be self-sustaining.

After the talk, we will open it up for discussion and sharing with one another about how we are practicing positive ways to open to the the moment in our every day lives, and working with the hindrances.

The ten hindrances are:
The belief in a permanent personality, ego
Doubt, extreme skepticism
Attachment to rites, rituals, and ceremonies
Attachment to sense desires
Ill-will, anger
Craving for existence in the Form world (heavenly realms)
Craving for existence in the Formless world (heavenly realms)
Conceit
Restlessness
Ignorance

Come in the door from the parking lot, go up the small flight of steps, go straight ahead, and the room is on the right side of the hallway. If you arrive late, just join in the silent sit.
