'Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Self' is the first of the three courses of the Basic Goodness Series. This series looks at universal questions that have been asked throughout human history, from the perspective of the Buddhist and Shambhala teachings.  The second course is called 'How Can I Help? The Basic Goodness of Others and Society', and the third is entitled 'What is Real? The Basic Goodness of the Phenomenal World'

These courses present the teachings in an experiential way, with an emphasis on a personal understanding of their meaning, and how we can apply them in our lives.  It is a journey which explores the implications of basic goodness for our experience of individuality, our relationship with others, and our connection with the reality of life itself.

This first course focuses on our sense of self.  It includes teachings on basic goodness, selflessness, the arising of ego and the five skandhas, beyond the 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.

The course will be held on the Zoom platform.  It will include talks, guided contemplation and discussion.
