How Can I Help? The Basic Goodness of Society


with Jackie Muse & Christopher Wenger & Stephanie Lindemann
May 15 / 7:00 PM - June 1 / 12:00 PM

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


 


How can I help?  The Basic Goodness of Society


 


The second course asks the question, “How can I help?” and explores our relationships with others, an aspiration to help our world, and specific aspects of social transformation. We look at a Shambhala understanding of society, and what enlightened society may be. Is society something that is ultimately confused, or is there goodness in human society?  The course focuses on transforming four aspects of society:  relations with family (household), professional life, entertainment, and economy. We learn the traditional mahayana practice of “sending and taking” (tong len).
