Our weekend retreat, "Who Am I? May 19-21, is the first course in the Basic Goodness Series.  “Who am I?” will examine our sense of self through exploring basic principles of Buddhist psychology such as basic goodness, selflessness, the arising of ego and cocoon, buddha nature, and the confidence of warriorship.

The "Basic Goodness Series" is comprised of three sequential courses:
