What Is Real? The Basic Goodness of Reality


with Madeline Conacher
March 20 / 7:00 PM - April 24 / 9:00 PM

This is the third course in the Basic Goodness Series of courses.


The Basic Goodness Series is an introduction to the view of Shambhala, taught in an experiential way.


If you are familiar with our Everyday Life Series of courses, the key difference between them and the Basic Goodness series is that the Everyday Life classes emphasize personal transformation in everyday life while the Basic Goodness Courses emphasize the experiential study of view and meaning.


The third course asks the question, “What is Real?” and focuses on a study of the phenomenal world. It emphasizes some of the core Buddhist teachings, such as impermanence, the process of perception, the "mind," and emptiness. It is oriented towards the experience of sacred world, the magic and wonder of the natural elements. There is an ecological element to the class.


Prerequisite: The Basic Goodness of Being Human, or The Basic Goodness of Society, or Shambhala Training Level 1: The Art of Being Human, or Meditation in Everyday Life, or Contentment in Everyday Life.
