Mindfulness of Feelings

Topics Include: 1) The “hedonic quality” of feelings. The role of feeling in consciousness itself. 2) The six sense doors or portals of cognition into the world. 3) How feelings trigger the latent defilements in the body. 4) How to break the link between feeling and the defilements: the role of mindfulness. The sharing of a personal experience. 5) Experiencing feelings without a sense of self being involved: the role of bare attention. 6) Shifting from attention to the content of feelings to the process of feeling itself. Seeing the flow of feelings as impermanent. 7) Understanding feelings as a natural by-product of the context in which we live, our karmic context or cause and effect, and not a product of a sense of self.
