Mental restlessness is an insidious and pervasive hindrance for all meditators. There are many modes of thinking that distract us from being mindful, such as critical thoughts, planning, worrying, lustful thoughts, and memories. This course focuses on a sequence of effective strategies taught by the Buddha and recorded in the Middle Length Discourses. Each session will emphasize one of the Buddha's practical instructions for dealing with obstructive mental patterns. The teachings in this six-week course are progressive lessons with sequential instruction. Taught by experienced meditation teachers Shaila Catherine, Diana Clark, Chris Clifford, and Sharon Allen.
