What is consciousness? This question is as intriguing now as it was in the Buddha’s time, and represents one of the last great frontiers of human knowledge. One gets different answers from the perspectives of first-person meditative experience and third-person scientific investigation, yet in our times these two points of view are converging. Meditation is a way of directly exploring the structures and textures of consciousness, with an eye to transforming experience from unhealthy forms of suffering to healthy modes of well-being. This day-long program explores these themes in lecture, discussion, and meditation practice, and is suitable for students at all levels of experience.
Teacher support: Suggested starting donation for a daylong is $30 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds. All donations go to support the teacher(s).
