Session Two: The Five Hindrances. As you sustain the attention on the breath, noticing the beginning, middle and end of each inhalation and exhalation the mind begins to withdraw from external sensory impingement’s and it becomes more calm and focused.

Participants are encouraged to attend all four sessions consecutively in order to build their understanding and practice of meditation.
