Basic Goodness Series #1


with Pamela Bothwell
January 17 / 7:00 PM - January 19 / 6:00 PM

Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human is the first of three new courses called the Basic Goodness Series. These three courses are 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. These courses are interactive and aspire to create a learning environment where the teachings are intimate, and also relevant to the times in which we live.


The new Basic Goodness Series is open to everyone, without prerequisites. We recommend that participants first receive basic meditation instruction during an open house or set up an individual appointment by contacting karinwms@gmail.com however this is not necessary to participate.


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 eachings. This series is a powerful journey through the complete view and experience of basic goodness–our personal experience, our experience with others, and our relationship with the reality of life itself.
