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).
Shambhala Meditation, a different practice than Shamatha Meditation, will be taught in this course.
In person at the Durham Shambhala Center.
This course is open to all.
