Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Humanity

with Cara Thornley

February 26 - 28, 2014

Who am I?… How can I help?… What is real?…

These questions are universal. They have arisen in some form across cultures and traditions throughout human history. Now they’re the focus of a new, three-course series in the Way of Shambhala path of training: the Basic Goodness series.

Meant for new and seasoned meditators alike, the Basic Goodness series introduces the view of Shambhala experientially. Participants receive teachings and support for exploring their present experience—with gentle curiosity and appreciation. From that starting point one can discover what it is to be fully human.

The first course in the sequence, Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human, is open to everyone. This course asks the question “Who am I?” and investigates the sense of self. It includes teachings on basic goodness, the development of ego, and confidence.

The program start at 9am on February 26th and ends at 5:30pm on February 28th.
