How Can I Help? Basic Goodness 2

with Larry Higgins
September 6 / 7:00 PM - September 8 / 6:00 PM

This course asks the question, "How can I help?" and explores our relationship with others, an aspiration to help our world, and specific aspects of social transformation.  We look at 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:  family life (household), professional life, entertainment, and economy.  We learn the traditional Mahayana practice of "sending and receiving" (tonglen). 

 Prerequisite:  While the prerequiste, The Basic Goodness of Being Human. (Who Am I?), would be helpful, new students are encouraged to join us!
