The Five Hindrances—sensual desire, ill-will, sloth and torpor, restlessness and doubt—are mental factors that are typically experienced with some degree of suffering and discomfort. They distort our mind’s ability to see clearly, creating obstacles to the growing of Wisdom. Through awareness, however, these obstacles can be taken as objects for mindfulness, leading to compassion and opening powerful insights into the nature of the mind. When taken into daily life practice, they can provide us with yet another framework for understanding our experience.

Louije Kim is an Oakland-based therapist and dharma practitioner who has been cultivating a Vipassana practice since 2009.
