Illuminating Basic Goodness 1: Who Am I? Exploring Identity and Belonging

con Acharya Holly Gayley

December 15 - 20, 2017

How do we develop a sense of self as separate from the world around us? Does adopting certain identities, personal and social, require us to leave parts of ourselves behind in order to belong? This module explores the classic Buddhist teachings on ego, alongside contemporary considerations of social identities and their relationship to systemic injustice in our society.
