Early Buddhist Psychology – Creative Formations – Saṅkhāra

‘All sankhārā are impermanent, apply yourselves with diligence’: the last words of the Buddha. ‘Sankhārā’ is one of the most commonly used and questionably translated terms in the Pāli Canon. As it refers to the activities that govern body, speech/thought, and mind/heart, it is also one of the most crucial themes to focus on for clarity, composure and liberation.
In this retreat, Ajahn Sucitto will present teachings on sankhārā (which he calls ‘programs’) and offer guidance on how meditation can help us to handle them skilfully. The retreat will have regular periods for meditation as well as talks and discussion
