This course in the Basic Goodness Series asks the question, “How can I help?” and explores our relationships with others, an aspiration to help our world, and specific aspects of social transformation. We look at a Shambhala understanding of society, and what enlightened society may be. Is society something that is ultimately confused, or is there goodness in human society? The course focuses on transforming four aspects of society: relations with family (household), professional life, entertainment, and economy. We learn the traditional mahayana practice of “sending and taking” (tonglen).


This course will include teachings on Shambhala Meditation, a new meditation practice recently introduced by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and available only through designated programs.  The instruction is open to all students of Basic Goodness 2.  Instruction on the practice will be given over all six course meetings.  This wonderful new practice is a terrific supplement to Shamatha meditation.  


This class is open to all.
