Awakening Wisdom

The Self Beyond Self

COURSE OVERVIEW

The heart of practicing with the self beyond self is recognizing who we truly are. This approach challenges the subtle grasping related to the sense of self or identity. In the world we inhabit, we mistakenly construct a version of reality referred to here as “false relative reality.” Even when we reflect on true relative reality — which is closer to who we are and the nature of phenomena — subtle concepts still remain. The absolute truth of the self beyond self helps us to begin to see that our true nature is beyond even time and matter.

In this course, you will explore practicing with the self beyond self through a step-by-step approach. You will investigate the sense of self in a deeper way, even beyond impermanence, multiplicity, and interdependence, and cultivate the full potential of your true nature. In addition to meditation instructions, this course is replete with metaphors to help you recognize the illusory nature of self and phenomena.
