Theravada Buddhism – Interfaith Studies / Intensive
August 15 @ 8:00 am - August 19 @ 5:00 pm
Theravada Buddhism Themed Intensive
August 15 – 19, 2018
In the August module, we focus on the tradition of Buddhism, specifically the Theravada lineage. Theravada is the dominant form of Buddhism in most of southeast Asia—Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Laos, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. It claims about 100 million adherents worldwide, and its doctrines are taken from the Pali Tipitaka or Pali Canon. Basic teachings from this practice will be taught by a Theravada Bhikkuni (Buddhist nun) and other members of the Bay Area Dharma community. This module also includes spiritual site visits and participation in religious services
Our module programs are designed to inspire, nurture and educate those who are called to serve in an Interfaith capacity in our increasingly diverse world or for those who are interested in learning more about a specific faith tradition. Our innovative programs focus on a combination of the study of world religions, an exploration of mystical paths and teachings, and spiritual care and ministry skills… all in a creatively infused context.
Students can take a single module or up to 3 modules total before they are required to apply for the full Interfaith Studies Certificate Program. If one chooses to enroll in the Interfaith Studies Certificate Program following attendance in a single or up to 3 modules, students will be required to complete the necessary homework and coursework associated with those classes to meet the requirements.
The Interfaith Studies Certificate Program prepares students for spiritual service to people of all faiths and paths.
