This course asks the question, “How can I help?” and 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).

How Can I Help? The Basic Goodness of Society is the second of three new courses called the Basic Goodness Series. The First course is called 'Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human', The second course is 'How Can I Help? The Basic Goodness of Society', and the third course is entitled 'What is Real? The Basic Goodness of Reality'. Each course consists of six classes.
