2000-12-28 The Five Hindrances 63:01
  Wendy Zerin
Five difficult energies in the mind will inevitably arise in practice: the classical hindrances of desire, aversion, sloth and torpor, restless, and doubt. In this talk, the nature of each one is explored and suggestions are offered for ways of working with them when they arise. In learning to work with the hindrances, they can become our very greatest teachers.
