How Can I Help? The Basic Goodness of Society
This course asks the question, “How can I help?” and explores our relationship with others as well as our aspiration to help the world. We look at the Shambhala teachings involved in creating an enlightened society.

Is society something that is ultimately confused, or is there goodness in human society? The course focuses on transforming four aspects of society: family life (household), professional life, entertainment, and economy. We learn the traditional mahayana practice of “sending and taking” (tonglen).

Open to all. (Strongly recommended preparation: An Introduction to Shamhala Meditation; Basic Goodness 1: The Basic Goodness of Being Human; and Meditation in Everyday Life, or Contentment in Everyday Life, or Shambhala Training Level I.
