Exploring Anatta: constructing and de-constructing the sense of self

This six week course is two hours on one day over six weekends, offered in Sydney and the Blue Mountains.

Over the course of six classes, we will explore what the Buddha was pointing to when he stated that all experience is impermanent (anicca), unsatisfactory (dukkha), and not-self (anatta). Focusing particularly on the aspect of anatta, we will approach this key teaching in a variety of ways, to help understand how it leads to greater ease, happiness, and freedom in our lives.

Each two-hour class will include a short dharma talk, some silent meditation practice, dyad (pairs) practice, and small group discussion.

During the six weeks of the course, you will be invited to maintain a regular sitting practice and keep a practice journal, to help inform the discussion during each meeting.

The course is best suited to people who have an established meditation practice, have sat at least one seven-day silent insight/vipassana retreat, and have some familiarity with the core Buddhist teachings (eg the Four Noble Truths, the Noble Eightfold Path, and the Four Foundations of Mindfulness).  Feel free to contact Jill if you have any questions about this.
