Investigating the Nature of Self
As we navigate this world of presentation, each one of us perceives the world from the perspective of a so-called “self.” The Buddhists have a different perspective as do the modern day neuroscientists. In this course we will explore Western, Buddhist, and scientific theories of self and how we relate to them with wisdom and compassion. The core teaching of the Five Aggregates will be the central focus of our study and practice.
This course will meet every other week on Wednesday mornings in order for students to work in depth with the material from each session. Open to Experienced Students. The core text is Untangling Self: A Buddhist Perspective on Who We Really Are by Andrew Olendzki.
Taught by: Jack Millett and Claire Stanley
