Hinduism & Sikhism

Dec 31st All Day

November 15 - 19, 2017

In November, the module focuses on the traditions of Hinduism, including Sikhism. In addition to the big picture view of Hindu and Sikh traditions and beliefs, there will be a deep dive into the sacred texts, exploring how to effectively read them. Much of this month’s learning will happen through immersion into the tradition through visits to a Sikh temple and then to the Shiva-Vishnu Temple. Time in this module will move between the experiential, the contemplative, the intellectual and the creative, painting a rich picture of the Hindu and Sikh traditions along with other specialized areas of exploration.

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.
