NEW! How can I help? The Basic Goodness of Society


with Benoît Côté
February 18 / 7:00 PM - March 25 / 9:00 PM

The second 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” (tong len).
