What is Real? The Basic Goodness of Reality

with Christian Gregory & Chris Montone
April 8 / 7:00 PM - April 13 / 5:00 PM

This third course in the new Basic Goodness Series 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 course.

Prerequisite:  Although this course is open to everyone, completion of Basic Goodness 1 (Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human), Basic Goodness 2 (How Can I Help?  The Basic Goodness of Society), and at least Level I are strongly recommended.
