Fall 2017 : Buddhist Meditation Traditions - RELB 2900
Join us for this experiential 6-week series featuring contemplative practices from around the world. Held at the University’s iconic Rotunda.
Tue. Aug 22, 2017 - Tue. Dec 5, 2017 (16 weeks)
Every Tuesday, Thursday from 2:00 PM to 3:15 PM
The goal of this course will be to examine different conceptions of Buddhist meditation and how these different conceptions affect the nature of practice and the understanding of the ideal life within a variety of Buddhist traditions. Thus, the study of Buddhist meditation traditions reveals not just intricate forms of practice, but reveals the nature of the good life and how one lives it.
