Description

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

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.

Teacher: Jill Shepherd

Cost for six sessions: $100 + dana* Please make a commitment to attend all six classes, to support our practice together as a group.

Please bring a pen and paper or notebook to each class.

*The registration fee covers only the cost of venue hire, administration, booking fees, and a contribution to the teacher's international airfares.

In keeping with Buddhist tradition, the teachings are offered on a dana basis which means the teacher is not paid to offer this workshop. Instead, they rely on the generosity of the participants to help them continue to share their teachings with others, and there will be an opportunity at the end of each class to offer donations to support their ongoing teaching.
