How Can I Help? The Basic Goodness of Society - Online

with Jil Amadio
July 7 / 10:00 AM - August 4 / 12:30 PM

The current moment of uncertainty is full of potential for both individual and collective change.  This second course in the Basic Goodness series explores our relationship with societal change, our aspirations to help our world, and the aspects that impact transformation; family, economy, work and entertainment.

We will use traditional Buddhist practices, which support our ability to shift our relationships, enrich our leisure time and inspire our professional life. From this starting point we can discover our place in a changing world and gain insights about how we can help.

Meant for new and seasoned meditators alike, this series is ideally suited for this potent time of disruption.  It introduces the view of Basic Goodness experientially and includes talks, discussion, dialogue, and contemplations. It invites us into a genuine process of reflection and questioning.

Open to all and running five consecutive Tuesday mornings, July 7 to August 4 from 10am to 12:30pm.
