Basic Goodness III - What is Real?

with Marita McLaughlin
November 7 / 7:00 PM - December 19 / 9:00 PM

This is the third course in the Basic Goodness Series of Classes

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

If you are currently attending our Everyday Life Series of courses, the key difference between the Everyday Life series 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 Basic Goodness Series is comprised of 3 courses.  This is the third course and is open to anyone who has recieved basic meditation instruction.

What is Real?  The Basic Goodness of Reality 

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.
