Anicca, Dukkha, Anata:
The Transformational Keys
To Insight Meditation

with Miles Kessler

7-10am PT / 10am-1pm ET / 3-6pm GMT / 4-7pm CET

Discover the liberating power of integrating the Three Universal Characteristics into your practice.

The three marks of existence in Buddhism – Anicca, Dukkha, Anata – are universal characteristics that condition all physical and non-physical phenomena in the universe.

Impermanence (anicca) is the truth that nothing is permanent and everything is constantly changing. Unsatisfactoriness (dukkha) is the truth that since the is no permanent core of experience to hold onto, ultimately all is conditioned by unsatisfactoriness. And Non-self (anata) is the truth that we do not have a fixed, unchanging identity.

These universal characteristics or ultimate realities are at the core of all insights in Vipassana meditation. But what does this practically mean in your meditation? In this Day of Practice with mindfulness and insight meditation teacher Miles Kessler, we will discover the answer.

In this 3-hour live session, Miles will be our guide as we explore Anicca, Dukkha, and Anata in depth, gaining theoretical and practical clarity on how these three Dhammas manifest in our practice.

Join us to learn how the Three Universal Characteristics:

  • apply to your practice
  • appear phenomenologically in your meditation
  • trigger a transformational process of purification, insight, and awakening

What is Day of Practice?

Sangha Live’s 3-hour, LIVE Day of Practice allows for you to drop in deeper, develop your meditation skills, and reset your intentions through sustained sitting.

Days of Practice includes longer periods of meditation, interspersed with wise teachings, an interactive Q&A with our teacher, and more.

Replay access will be available to all registrants within 48 hours of the live session.

How is Day of Practice different from Sangha Live’s Daily/Sunday classes?

Our shorter Daily Meditation (60 mins) and Sunday Sangha (90 mins) programs emphasize dharma teachings, while our longer Days of Practice (3 hours) emphasize development of meditation practice.

Daily practice is crucial for watering seeds of mindfulness, but extended periods of deep attention such as these, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, can be uniquely fruitful.


Day of Practice is offered on a sliding scale basis, with a suggested rate of $35. We wholeheartedly welcome all to practice with us; no one turned away for lack of funds.
