Transforming the Five Protections: Doubt

Friday, June 3, 2022 - 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

A Friday Evening On-Site Talk

With Rebecca Bradshaw

This weekend we will continue our four month exploration of the five hindrances, five challenges that arise in our practice that block us from fully settling into life as it is.  We explore engaging with these energies with mindfulness and friendliness, allowing them to liberate themselves within spacious awareness. 

This weekend we will continue by meeting doubt and skepticism, perhaps the slipperiest of the five challenges! Skeptical doubt causes us to pull back and can paralyze our practice. We doubt our abilities, the teachings, or our own inner capacity for freedom. Doubt can even manifest as an inner critic that attempts to sabotage our efforts. We will learn to befriend and tame this energy through the five mindfulness tasks: noticing when it’s present, when it’s absent, what leads to its arising, what helps us to disentangle, and what discourages it from arising again.
