Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human

with Shelley Heinz
April 9 / 7:00 PM - May 14 / 9:00 PM


'Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human' is the first of three courses called the BASIC GOODNESS SERIES.  These three courses need to be taken in sequence. The second course is called 'How Can I Help? The Basic Goodness of Society', and the third course is entitled 'What is Real?   The Basic Goodness of Reality'. Each course consists of six classes. In general the BASIC GOODNESS SERIES presents Shambhala and Buddhist teachings in an experiential way, with an emphasis on understanding the view and meaning of these teachings.

This course focuses on the sense of self. It includes teachings on basic goodness, selflessness, the arising of ego, the 5 skandhas, cocoon, Buddha nature, and the confidence of warriorship. It also includes the practice of contemplation, investigating the self based on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness.

The course is open to all, but it is highly recommended that students have had some basic meditation instruction within Shambhala.
