If paying the full price is a hardship for you, please see our "Generosity Policy" below.

This course asks the question, "How can I help?" and explores our aspiration to help our world, how we relate with others, and how real social transformation could occur.

It will also include investigation of  the question, "Is society fundamentally, irretrievably confused?"

Using the Shambhala teachings to study and contemplate what enlightened society may possibly be, we will also look at other traditional wisdom teachings which focus on transforming four key aspects of society: family life (household), work life, entertainment/ leisure, and economy.

You will receive instruction in the traditional Mahayana practice of "sending and receiving" (tonglen), and there will be a short group meditation practice in each class.

The three Basic Goodness courses may be taken out of sequence.

Prerequisite:  It is highly recommended to have taken Shambhala Training Level I or the Meditation in Everyday Life course. Please contact us early for an exception. 

Thank you for registering early. You may register and pay now, or register online and pay when you arrive at the program.
