Way of Shambhala - Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human

with Shastri Maria Stella & Anne Bruce

November 14th—December 19th (2013)

Date details +

    Registration for this course is now closed.

    This course asks the question, “Who am I?” and explores 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 practice contemplative investigations of the self, based on the foundations of mindfulness.

    This is the first course in the “Basic Goodness” series of the Way of Shambhala path of training. Intended for both new and seasoned meditators, the Basic Goodness series introduces the view of Shambhala in an experiential way. To learn more about this series, watch the video below or see Introducing the Basic Goodness Series on our News Blog.

    Prerequisite: None—everyone is welcome. We recommend that prospective participants receive meditation instruction in advance (at Open House, for instance).

    Schedule: Six consecutive Thursdays, November 14 – December 19, 7:00 – 9:00 PM
