Dukkha – The Unsatisfactory Nature of Sense Experience

In this eight-week course on Dukkha, we will examine the second of three underlying truths that characterize all experience. We will use a stable and continuous present-moment awareness to better investigate the unsatisfactory, uncertain, and ungovernable nature of experience. This underlying nature may be unpleasant, but it doesn’t have to be a personal problem. The Buddha taught that the mind can be trained to see the nature of dukkha clearly in a way that uproots the habits of resistance and/or denial. With practice, it is possible to meet unsatisfactoriness with equanimity, thus opening the door to insight and freedom.
