Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human is the first of three new courses called the BASIC GOODNESS SERIES. These three courses need to be 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. Each course consists of six classes. These courses are interactive and create a learning environment where the teachings are intimate, and also relevant to the times in which we live.

The first course asks the questions “Who am I?” and focuses on the sense of self. 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.

Here's a link to an article in the Shambhala Times on the Basic Goodness series which also includes a nine minute video talk by Kalapa Acharya Adam Lobel on the series: http://shambhalatimes.org/2012/12/21/the-three-basic-goodnesses/

Anyone can attend this new series; there are no prerequisites. If you can't afford the listed price, you're welcome to attend and pay what you can afford.
