No-Self in the Brain: Insights from Neuroscience

July 15, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm PDT
Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Woodacre, CA,
United States
+ Google Map

In this workshop, we will examine "self" and its release in light of Buddhism and modern brain science. These perspectives inform each other, and together they offer powerful and practical tools for deconstructing the apparent self. Topics covered: Buddhist perspectives on the interconnectedness of all things and thus the "emptiness" of any apparent thing; the four defining characteristics of the presumed "I"; the absence of these characteristics in both your experience and your brain; why the apparent "I" is not just "empty" but actually does not exist; ways to fill the hole in the heart and thus reduce self-ing; brain-savvy ways to relax the sense of self, take things less personally, feel more at peace with the world, and rest in the spacious awareness.
