Buddhist Summer School 2020

January 11 - January 14

A rich tapestry of traditions has been woven by Asian cultures around the essence of the teachings of the Buddha, who lived 2500 years ago. The enduring nature of Buddhism is symptomatic of its integrity as a spiritual discipline. Over the past several decades Westerners have begun to learn from and participate in the diversity and essence of Buddhism.

The Summer School offers courses on Buddhist philosophy and meditation within various traditions, as well as courses on comparative philosophy and psychology.
