The Kleshas: Working with the Obstacles

Available worldwide

This talk with Annie Carpenter is all about the Kelshas. The Kleshas are the rocks in our path that keep us from achieving our most heart-felt goals.They are born of the fear that darkens our inner-light and blinds us to true self-awareness. Through investigation and steady practice we can learn to recognize, predict and clear these obstacles opening our paths to a deeply satisfying practice and an ever-expanding state of acceptance, compassion and equanimity. This will be lecture, discussion and meditation, and is open to all.

Thank you so much Annie. I had the pleasure of participating in one of your workshops at the Northwest Yoga Conference this year in Seattle; arm balances. I'm so grateful I belong to this Sangha, Gaiam TV, that I was able to hear your beautiful interpretation of the Kleshas. Universe willing I will experience more deep learning with you in my future . . . I think many of the kleshas and opposites of them were present in this post. Namaste

Thank you Annie, for taking such a difficult subject and making it real and understandable. Not easy to practice but well worth the effort!!

Philosophy can feel very academic and hard to grasp for me... but not when you explain it to me Annie. Nobody breaks things down with the clarity, intelligence and heart that you do. Nobody. Huge love to you and thank you for this GEM! xoxo

The timing on receiving the invitation to visit the website and discover this video was truly of God. Thank you for helping me discover that the upheavals related to the attachments in my life are all linked together and taking me suddenly into every fear. There is no avoiding the lessons before me. Thank you for reminding me that it is absolutely necessary to learn these lessons with compassion for the learner. Thank you for your insights, your kindness and your love. I have not heard these explanations before. Namaste.
