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.
