Today’s session is the first in a special run of three consecutive sessions with Martin, where he looks deeply at the nature of experience through Buddha’s profound descriptions of reality – Impermanence, Emptiness, Non self-existence. The classes point directly to how these themes can come alive in our practice and understanding, looking at the personal, social and political implications of these themes. Martin guides meditations, offers teachings, and responds to your questions, comments and explorations. Each class stands alone, with Martin’s encouragement to participate in the whole series.
