There is no question more engaging, universal and mysterious than the question: ‘Who Am I?’
As soon as we start to explore who or what we are, a new landscape is revealed, rich with insights: ‘Who is in charge of my life?’ ‘How can I dissolve the sense of separation between me and the world?’ ‘How can we get ourselves out of the way?’ ‘What is the experience of the limitless?’
As this course will show you, Buddhist practice to discover the self and what is beyond (‘Anatta’) helps us peel off layers of conditioning and beliefs and live more wisely, more lightly and more freely.
Ignorance concerning who I really am, and the assumption that we are subjects separate from an external world against which we struggle, leads us to live automatically. We see ourselves in a shifting unreliable world to which we respond with our needs, desires, aversions and attachments. As soon as we start to question and explore who or what we are, a new landscape is revealed and our life can get dramatically more deep and interesting. We find ourselves in a world of paradox, mystery, and yet unimagined freedom. ‘Who is in charge of my life?’ ‘What in me is changing and what is constant?’ ‘Which of the many voices within me can I rely on?’ ‘How can I let go of the sense of separation between me and the world?’ ‘Is my life leading me somewhere?’ ‘How much can I change things?’ Questions such as these become a journey of discovery.
This in-depth course consists of 8 video talks, 8 guided meditations, written study materials and practical exercises for integrating the course material into your daily life.
