Who am I? (Basic Goodness #1)

with Marita McLaughlin & David Stone
February 21 / 7:00 PM - February 23 / 6:00 PM


The new Basic Goodness Series is open to everyone!

It is strongly recommended that participants first receive basic meditation instruction during an open house, a Shambhala Training program, or a Learn to Meditate Day. You are welcome to attend any of our free open houses prior to taking this course.

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.

Who am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human is the first of the 3 courses. The first course asks the questions “Who am I?” and focuses on 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 will practice contemplative investigations of the self, based upon the Foundations of Mindfulness.

If this course is oversubscribed, students now taking Sacred Path or who have done so previously will be given priority.

The Shambhala Center does not turn particpants away because of inability to pay the fee.  If you need a discount on the fees, please say so in the comment section when you register.
