The Construction Of Identity And The Five Clinging Aggregates.
A Five Week Series with Shaila Catherine.
- January 13—Focus on Matter

- January 27—Focus on Perception
- February 3—Focus on Mental Formations
- February 10—Focus on Consciousness
This Tuesday evening series will explore a classic Buddhist model of identity construction: the five aggregates affected by clinging. This model includes materiality, feeling, perception, formations, and consciousness. It offers meditators a powerful way to experientially realize how selfing occurs in contact with experiences, how the psychophysical process is experienced as a self, and how seeing things as not-self is liberating.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME. Chairs are provided. Bring a cushion if you prefer to sit on the floor.
