We all experience having a particular identity that helps us navigate the world, but that sense of self is also a source of great suffering, as we cling to its wants and react to how others treat it. The Buddha taught that “not-self” was one of the three fundamental characteristics of existence, alongside impermanence and suffering, but what he actually meant by that has been the subject of much discussion ever since.
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.
There will be plenty of opportunities for questions and discussion. No background in meditation or neuroscience is necessary.
Teachings are appropriate for the general public as well as health care professionals. Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program when working with clients. Continuing Education (CE) credit available.
Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
