What is Real? The Basic Goodness of Reality


with Arawana Hayashi
January 20 / 6:30 PM - March 10 / 8:30 PM

This is the third and final course of the Basic Goodness Series, which asks How do we know what is real?  How might we begin to ask this question in a way that is meaningful for our everyday lives?  In this course, we will present a number of views from the Shambhala Buddhist tradition, including interdependence, exploring the display of reality, the role of mind in perception, and the teachings on emptiness and sacredness.  There is an emphasis on the sacredness of the elemental, natural ecosystem.


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