Basic Goodness 1: Who Am I?

with Jay Lippman
April 3 / 7:00 PM - May 8 / 9:00 PM

The Basic Goodness Series is open to everyone. It is an introduction to the view of Shambhala, taught in an experiential way, through three courses. This course is the first of the three and asks the question “Who am I?” The course focuses on our sense of self. Where does that come from? 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.


It is strongly recommended that participants first receive basic meditation instruction and begin a regular meditation practice before taking this course.  You may request individual meditation instruction by contacting Attending the Meditation In Everyday Life or the Contentment in Everyday Life courses or a Shambhala Level I are also recommended.
