The Basic Goodness Series is an introduction to the view of Shambhala, taught in an experiential way.

If you are currently attending our Everyday Life Series of courses, the key difference between the Everyday Life series and the Basic Goodness series is that the Everyday Life classes emphasize personal transformation in everyday life while the Basic Goodness Courses emphasize the experiential study of view and meaning.

The Basic Goodness Series is comprised of 3 courses.

Who am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human is the first of the 3 courses. 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.
