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.
