Basic Goodness II- How can I Help?


with Shelley Heinz
February 20 / 7:00 PM - March 27 / 9:00 PM

This second course in the new Basic Goodness Series asks the question, “How can I help?” and explores our relationships with others, what it might mean 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 includes teachings on “bodhichitta,” communication, virtue, and how society arises as an expression of interconnectedness. We also work with the traditional mahayana practice of tonglen, "sending and taking."


The pre-requisites for this class are:




  • Anyone who has completed BG1

  • or Level 1 

  • or Contentment In Everyday Life

  • or is a graduate of the previous paths, and obviously MIs, teachers etc.



Teacher’s gifts are cheerfully accepted and can be one way to show appreciation for the teacher as well as a way to support their ongoing teaching.
