Buddhist Studies Course: Anatta - January 2020
BUDDHIST STUDIES: Anatta: The Impersonal Nature of Experience led by Mark Nunberg
Eight Mondays, January 13 - March 2, 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. Optional sitting period, 7:00 – 7:30 p.m.
In this eight-week course, we will investigate the Buddha’s teachings on anatta, the impersonal nature of experience. Insight into the changing and conditioned nature of phenomena weakens all fixed views including the mind’s habit of taking things personally. We often live our lives through the lens of self-centered fear and longing. We are so busy pursuing our attachments that we miss how much stress is involved when the mind identifies with thoughts and emotions. As the mind's understanding deepens it is possible to live with ease, natural compassion and greater skill as we navigate the joys and sorrows of life.
The Buddhist Studies Program is designed for people who have attended three or more mindfulness meditation retreats and have a commitment to daily meditation practice. This ongoing program is designed to deepen our understanding through the study and application of the teachings of the Buddha. Each class will include a short talk, small-group discussions, and guided sitting time. Participants will be expected to use the teachings as a focus for their daily practice. We are attempting to provide live streaming for those who wish to participate online. Please contact
with Buddhist Studies Live Stream in the subject line.
