Description

In Beyond Religion, the Dalai Lama proposes the development of a secular system of ethics that transcends religion and focuses on our shared humanity and our interdependence as a key part of that humanity. His Holiness discusses the importance of global tolerance and rejection of violence, as well as the need for morality to be included in education.

In this course, participants will:

  • Define secular ethics and what it means to enjoy mutual tolerance and respect for all.
  • Discover the elements of a shared human experience: identity, perspective, equality, empathy and suffering.
  • Explain the role of discernment in creating our own inner value system and generating our own personal level of ethical awareness.
  • Examine the role of ethics in our shared world by discussing concepts of cooperation, the culture of violence that exists, personal disarmament, the environmental crisis and the needs for education of the concepts of ethics.
  • Analyze key inner values of patience, forbearance, contentment, self-discipline and generosity, consider how they impact our system of ethics and integrate these values into our practice.
  • Discuss the purpose of diversity training as it pertains to the massage therapy industry.

Testimonials

The Dalai Lama is an excellent writer, and I always enjoy his books. Thank you for including his latest work as one of your courses.

Valerie L. Beasley

This was a WONDERFUL ethics course! Interesting, heart-warming, and full of lots of things to mentally chew on and digest. Would be great in a classroom setting as well. I've learned quite a lot and will be returning to this book over and over again in the future.

Laura Lenz

This class was delightful and far better than I imagined. The study of ethics has always interested me but this was right up there in the top 3 classes I've had and the other 2 were live discussion classes. This was the best on line course I've taken! Not sure your other courses will measure up as the text for this was written by the Dalai Lama! Most texts for on line courses are too easy, talk down to the reader, not detailed enough and not adequately challenging. This one was a real winner. Thanks so much for having an impact not only on my practice but on my general existence.

Lamar A Bliss

I enjoyed this course and really did get a lot out of it. I like how you have made ethics more interesting and continue to keep mixing it up. I really appreciate the book Beyond Religion and how ethics is explained w/o so much religious talk (coming from the Dalai Lama) and I will continue to read this book as I feel this is a good reminder of simple things to appreciate in life. We all can practice gratitude. I will share this with others.
