First Noble Truth–Defining Dukkha

Topics Include: 1) Review of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness. 2) Introduction to the term and problems in the definition of “dukkha”. 3) Original Pali definition of “dukkha” as the badly fitting axle of a wheel. 4) The illusion of “agency” or a sense of self who controls our body and our life. 5) Difference between “unsatisfactoriness” and “suffering” and the meaning of awakening. 6) Seeing “dukkha” in all the aspects of our temporal lives and, at a deeper level in the nature of experience itself.
