About this Event

THE LIBERATING TEACHINGS OF THE FIVE AGGREGATES. - “we are such stuff as dreams are made on”

This course is for experienced students. ​

The latest newsletter had an error and said starting date is apr2. It is apr20th.

In the First Noble Truth the Buddha states:​

Birth, aging and death are dukkha (suffering); association with the not loved is dukkha, separation from the loved is dukkha, not getting what one wants is dukkha, getting what one doesn't want is dukkha. In short, the five aggregates subject to clinging are dukkha.

In this six-week course we will explore what the Buddha meant by not clinging to any aspect of experience — form, feeling, perception, volition and consciousness — and how this can impact our daily lives.

It is our intention that these classes be welcoming and accessible to people of all backgrounds, abilities, races and genders so if there is financial need and the cost is a barrier, contact saaloi@icloud.com.

The registration fee goes towards BCIMS operating expenses; the teachers are not paid by BCIMS. You are invited to make a contribution of Dāna to the teachers.
