Who Am I ? The Basic Goodness of Being Human

with Nancy Smith & Rayna Jacobson
August 16 / 7:00 PM - August 18 / 4:00 PM

This course asks the question, "Who am I?" and explores the sense of self. It includes teachings on basic goodness, selflessness, the arising of ego and cocoon, buddha nature, and the confidence of warriorship. We practice contemplative investigations of the self, based on the foundations of mindfulness.

This is the first course in the  Basic Goodness Series of the Way of Shambhala path of training. Intended for both new and seasoned meditators, the Basic Goodness series introduces the view of Shambhala and Buddhist teachings in an experiential way with an emphasis on understanding the view and meaning of these teachings. This series is a powerful journey through the complete view and experience of basic goodness–our personal experience, our experience with others, and our relationship with the reality of life itself.

Open to the public.
