Re-envisioning the Aggregates–An online retreat
An often overlooked, but centrally important, topic in early Buddhist teachings is that of the five ‘khandhas’ (Pali) or ‘skandhas’ (Sanskrit). Typically translated as ‘the five aggregates’, these teachings describe the elements which comprise our ongoing experience of ourselves and our worlds. Through a meditative investigation of the aggregates, we can develop an understanding of how our experience develops from moment to moment and over time into the complex cognitive and emotional processes we inhabit every day. The purpose of this retreat will be to explore these teachings in a direct and personal way to make them accessible and meaningful to us in our modern, twenty-first century lives. In the spirit of Reflective Meditation, we will re-envision the five aggregates through our curiosity about our own experience and with an openness to our creative impulses.
With Bill Wellhouse, Brad Parks and Anna Delacroix
