HOW CAN I HELP? THE BASIC GOODNESS OF SOCIETY

This six-session recorded course explores our relationships with others, an aspiration to help our world, and specific aspects of social transformation.

We look at a Shambhala understanding of society, and what enlightened society may be. Is society something that is ultimately confused, or is there goodness in human society? The course focuses on transforming four aspects of society: relations with family (household), professional life, entertainment, and economy. We learn the traditional mahayana practice of “sending and taking” (tonglen).

Reading list for this course:

Shambhala, Sacred Path of the Warrior, Chogyam Trungpa, Shambhala Publications 2010
The Shambhala Principle, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, Harmony, 2013
Work, Sex, and Money, Real Life on the Path of Mindfulness, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Shambhala Publications 2011

Open to all. (Strongly recommended preparation: Basic Goodness 1 - The Basic Goodness of Being Human; and Meditation in Everyday Life, or Contentment in Everyday Life, or Shambhala Training Level I.)

Generosity Policy

The Brunswick Portland Shambhala Center is funded solely by your membership and program donations. Thank you for your generosity as you consider what you can pay for each program at our Center. We strive to price our programs in a way that accurately reflects the financial need of our Center and the cost to us of producing the program.

We have a generosity policy to make our offerings available to all who wish to participate. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please consider what is possible for you in your current situation, and offer as much of the program fee as you can.

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price”. Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
