Who am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human

with Gisèle Laberge
October 20 / 6:30 PM - November 24 / 9:00 PM

This course offers a journey around the question “Who Am I?” The intention is to invite people of any background to join into a genuine process of contemplative inquiry. How can we even ask this question, and explore it in a way that leads to some real experiential understanding?

The container and orientation for this journey is the notion of basic goodness. In this case, it means that we adopt an attitude of gentleness and openness toward ourselves, as opposed to assuming that there is already a basic problem or something to be fixed.

Meditation practice is used as a way to contact and express that kind of mind. There will be different contemplative and dialogue exercises. Buddhist teachings on how our sense of self arises moment by moment will be offered as reference point. 

The prerequisite for this course are one of these programs: Meditation in Everyday Life ( MIEL) or Contentment in Everyday Life ( CIEL) or Shambhala Training Level 1: the Art of Being Human
