How Can I Help? The Basic Goodness of Relationship and SocietyOctober 23, 2017
The Sackville Shambhala Meditation Group is pleased to offer the six-week course “How Can I Help? The Basic Goodness of Relationship and Society” which explores our relationships with others and society, and our aspiration to help our world. We will explore the Shambhala understanding of society and enlightened society in particular. Are relationships ultimately confused or is there goodness in human society? How can our engagement in society be based more fully on interconnection and kindness? We will explore these questions in four areas of our lives: family and household, work, arts and entertainment, and economy. The contemplative practices of Shambhala Meditation, tonglen (“sending and taking” in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition) and true listening will be introduced.
Dates: Sept. 25 – Oct. 30, 2017, Mondays at 7:00 pm
