About us

Illuminating Basic Goodness: What is Real?

Touching the Sacred Earth

 

What is real and what matters in our lives? What would it mean to reassess our participation in the speed and consumer-driven orientation of modern society that is rapidly degrading our planet? This course explores the Buddhist teaching on interdependence and emptiness, and their connection to an ecological worldview and alternative way of being in right relationship with our environment.


Course Includes:

  • Guided meditation

  • Teachings on Buddhist and Shambhala insights on ecology and the nature of reality

  • Dialogues and discussion groups

  • Question and answer sessions


This class is intended for those who have completed the first cycle of Shambhala Training Weekends and the Everyday Life course series, but is also open to new meditators. The Basic Goodness series will provide a sustained reflection on the meaning of basic goodness as it relates with our sense of self, society, and reality.


Open to all
