This course 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: family life (household), professional life, entertainment, and economy. We learn the traditional mahayana practice of "sending and taking” (tonglen).
This is the second course in the "Basic Goodness" series of the Way of Shambhala path of training. The Basic Goodness series introduces the view of Shambhala in an experiential way. To learn more about this series, watch the video below.
