Nov 21-22: The Five Aggregates - Understanding the Psycho-physical Basis of Our Human Experience
Also known as “Five Heaps” or Skandhas, they constitute the basis of our moment-by-moment human experience. Taken together, these five factors explain the totality of what most people think of as reality and, by extension, their personal idea self and other. During this weekend course, you will learn how misreading this basis of human experience continually gives rise to suffering. While awakening to a different view of the five aggregates is our key to spiritual growth and freedom.
