The spiritual path seeks to answer a question so ancient, it is almost a trope today: “who am I?”
The need to understand our sense of self is a cornerstone to understanding how to live a meaningful life. Unfortunately we are bombarded by so many opinions, projections, and hollow validations that it is more convenient to exist as a fixed persona instead of an open-dimensional being.
The traditions of Buddhism seek to point out where those projections blind us to our true nature and stir up neurotic misunderstanding in its place, which becomes internal suffering. By unpacking the universal qualities of self and identity, we are free to develop confidence in our own natural and uncontrived self without co-dependence on outer conditions or other people.
Drawing from the traditional teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, Dungse Jampal Norbu will share his reflections on how we relate to our sense of self. This series of talks and conversations will focus on identity, dharma practice, and how to develop a healthy relationship to a larger sense of self that transcends the ego.
