Room: Main Shrine Room

Please join us for this third and final course of the Basic Goodness Series which asks the question, “What is real?” How do we know what is real? How might we begin to explore this question in a way that is meaningful for our everyday lives?  Intended for new and seasoned meditators alike, the Basic Goodness series introduces the view of Shambhala experientially.  In this course, we will look at core teachings from the Shambhala Buddhist tradition, including teachings on interdependence, the process of perception, "mind" and emptiness.  There is an emphasis on the sacredness of the natural world and our innate capacity to experience the essence of reality through the sense perceptions.  

Recommended preparation:  Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human; How Can I Help? The Basic Goodness of Society; and at least Shambhala Training Level I Weekend Retreat.
