Taking life less Personally

Taking life less Personally

The self – the ego, I, me – is a major source of suffering, as we cling to its wants, try to build up its possessions and glorifications, and react to how others treat it. We believe the self is a real entity – but in the brain, no sign of this being can be found. This talk will:
•  Explore how the delusion of being a self is constructed in the brain
•  Show the actual transience, compoundedness, and dependent origination – and thus the “emptiness” – of the apparent self in the brain
•  Present several brain-savvy practices for relaxing the sense of self
