Summer Class Spotlight

RELB 2100 - Introduction to Buddhism

July 14 - August 8

In American society, we often see “Zen” tea , as well as the terms “karma” or “nirvana” mentioned in popular culture. But what did these terms mean in their original Buddhist context? In this course we will survey the history of Buddhism in Asia and the West, and also learn about Buddhist spiritual practices such as Zen art and meditation, which will include having sessions in the garden and gym in order to experience mindful breathing, walking, and listening.

Lecturer: Gloria Chien
