Identity and the Five Aggregates
Time & Location
About The Event
Register at Insight Meditation Center of Pioneer Valley
In Buddhism, identity is often viewed as something to be overcome. During this half-day retreat, we will focus on how the framework of the five aggregates offers a path of inquiry into an embodied relationship with identity. We will use gender identity as the primary area of focus and other aspects of identity will also be explored. Rather than bypassing our identities to achieve emptiness, they can be rich avenues for liberation for ourselves and all beings.
This half-day of practice will include meditation, Dharma reflections, mindful movement, small group discussions and Q&A and is suitable for all levels of experience.
