Many of the experiences of aging open us to the perennial wisdom of the Buddhist teachings. The brilliant practices of awareness and compassion lead us to find this wisdom in ourselves.
In this five week class series, we will explore what are known as "The Three Marks of Existence" - dukkha (suffering), anicca (impermanence), and anatta (not self). These are considered doorways of insight.
