Desire as a hindrance doesn’t mean intentionality, it doesn’t mean strong ardency to get things done, all of which can be very positive. It means clinging, attachment, grasping.
-Sharon Salzberg

Week 2 of Sharon’s ongoing Tricycle Retreat on the Five Hindrances begins today. To participate please become a Tricycle Community Supporting or Sustaining Member.
