FiveAggregates–Understanding Anatta

Topics Include: 1) Understanding the teachings not as abstract concepts but as the basis for experiential learning. 2) How our experience of pain is heightened by our identification with our bodies as being our self. 3) How redefining our relationship to self changes our basic concept of morality and ethics. 4) The primacy of impermanence in the three characteristics of existence. Noting the arising and passing away of phenomena. 5) Seeing impermanence at the microscopic and macroscopic levels. 6) The delusion of happiness in things that are impermanent. 7) Getting attached to concentration sites in meditation instead of seeking awareness of impermanence. 8) Abandoning “ownership” of the five aggregates as self.
