'Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human' is the first of three new courses collectively called the Basic Goodness Series. This series is oriented towards universal questions that have arisen in some form throughout human history, in most cultures and traditions.

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'. These courses are intended to create learning communities where we can come together and reflect on our own experience and the world.

In general the Basic Goodness Series presents teachings in an experiential way, with an emphasis on understanding the view and meaning of these teachings, and how they can be applied to our lives. This series is a powerful journey through the complete view and experience of basic goodness - our personal experience, our experience with others, and our relationship with the reality of life itself.

In addition to welcoming us into an experience of the wakefulness and dignity of being human, the Basic Goodness Series is also describing the underlying understanding of a social revolution. Shambhala vision is not limited to individual awakening; it is a vision for human society and “shifting” human history.

This first course focuses on the sense of self. It includes teachings on basic goodness, selflessness, the arising of ego and the five skandhas, cocoon, buddha nature, and the confidence of warriorship. We will practice contemplative investigations of the self based upon the four Foundations of Mindfulness, a core teaching from the Buddhist tradition.
