How Can I Help


with Michael Greenleaf & Cara Thornley
March 7 / 6:30 PM - March 28 / 8:30 PM


This is the second course in the new Basic Goodness series of classes. This class 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).

There are no prerequisites for this class, but experience with meditation practice is highly recommended. Cost: $100, (discounts for members, students and seniors available)
