Half-day on the The Four Seals of Buddhism, Saturday 1:00pm-5:00pm June 24th, Insight Santa Cruz

All compounded things are impermanent, all emotions are painful, all phenomena are empty of self-existence, and nirvana is beyond extremes. These are the Four Seals of Buddhism. In general, these four seals, or characteristics are what distinguish Buddhism from the infinite ways we can view our internal and external worlds. In practice, these ‘seals,’ become a path to work with our everyday perceptions, thoughts, and emotions, bringing greater efficacy in overcoming mental and emotional habits that cause us unnecessary suffering. In this half-day program, we will explore these four seals together through periods of teaching, meditation, and discussion.
