What is real? The Basic Goodness of Reality Class

A 6 week on-line class: "What is real? The Basic Goodness of Reality" taught in English with Spanish subtitles by Acharya John Rockwell. In this recorded course, participants explore the ordinary magic of reality and learn about the progressive stages of discovering non-dual perception of the elements, and thus, the nature of mind. Students will be taking sense perceptions and the elements as their teachers. The course is experientially oriented to see, hear, touch, taste and smell reality afresh. We awaken to the innate capacity we all possess to explore and directly experience the essence of reality, the essence of basic goodness. Acharya Rockwell is one of Shambhala's best teachers!!! starts Sunday, October 1st, 12:15 pm at the WindHorse Cafe, Calle Larga 6-16 y Hermano Miguel. Classes continues every Sunday for 6 weeks. Cost is $25. Free to those who have taken it before. Generosity policy applies. No one turned away for lack of funds. Prerequisite: previous Shambhala meditation instruction.

Agile, responsible student looking for work

The academic year has kicked in, and my scholarsip student, Michelle, is still looking for a job that could provide her with enough money to cover the costs of books, photocopying, transport and other usual items for a 21-year-old. She is studying to become a social worker and her fees are covered by the government. However, there is no stipend and her underprivileged family still needs to support her. She has classes from 5 PM, so would need to finish by 4 PM each weekday. Cleaning, childminding, working in a restaurant or a shop for a couple of hours could do the trick. Her English is lower-intermediate, any further exposure to speakers of English (expats or visitors) would be an added bonus. Should you have anything for her, I will mediate and help you set it up.
