Program Description:

Buddhist traditions have understood the mind to be the sixth sense organ and thinking to be a sensation like smell, taste, touch, sight, and hearing. What is it like to experience the mind as a sense organ? And how does that experience shift our relationship to the other five sense organs? This program focuses on the six sense organs as doorways to insight and sense experiences as opportunities to practice in ways that lead to equanimity. We will focus particular attention on the Discourse on the Analysis of the Six Sense Fields (the Saḷāyatanavibhaṅga Sutta). In addition to sutta study, this program will include guided meditation, group discussion, and Dhamma talks.
