“I” without “am”… the open field of mind (for experienced practitioners) with Ajahn Sucitto
17 September 2017 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
This retreat is for experienced practitioners. Subjectivity – the sense of ‘I’ at the centre of mind – is our fundamental reference in life. And yet the Buddha teaches ‘not-self.’ The resolution of this apparent contradiction centres around letting go of the various objects, descriptions and actions that add ‘am…’ to this subjective sense. To this end, the weekend will offer meditation and some non-verbal interactive exercises.
