Exploring Insight – A series of talks on the three characteristics for Heart Insight Brisbane Meditation Group

This is a series of talks exploring the three characteristics of impermanence (anicca), pain (dukkha) and not-self (anatta). For the Buddha, “insight” means seeing into these three characteristics. At the moment it looks like these talks will be delivered online via Zoom, although this can change depending on the pandemic.

The talks will be held during the Heart Insight meeting, which takes place from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) on Sunday nights. There will be five talks: Sunday 6 June; Sunday 4 July; Sunday 1 August; Sunday 3 October; and Sunday 5 December.

Sunday 1 August 2021
Exploring Dukkha

The second characteristic of experience is dukkha, classically translated as “suffering.” However, there is no English equivalent for dukkha because it covers the whole range of disagreeable experiences, from the most extreme agony to the subtlest dis-ease. Why does the Buddha see it as so important? Where does it fit in our meditation practice? How does it provide us with “insight” (vipassanā)? We will explore these and related questions during this talk.

Sunday 3 October & Sunday 5 December

The final two talks in this series will cover the subject of anattā, “not-self.”
