3 Days, 3 Religions

You will learn lots! Here's what it includes:

  • Mornings: Three talks that provide background on each tradition. Learn about history, beliefs and practices. 

  • Afternoons: Three interviews with Guides from each tradition. The Guide will speak briefly and then we'll open for Q&A.

  • Extra Sessions: We will have a chance for group discussion to process all that you're learning, and an extended question session with Brian.  

  • In Addition: You will get:

    • An electronic coursepack that contains extra information

    • Summary pages of the class presentations

    • Pre-class videos to watch. Short clips totaling perhaps 15 mins per class to show ritual, etc. 

    • All sessions recorded and available for a week afterwards to fit your schedule.

  • All sessions will be conducted via Zoom.

Brian is a charismatic speaker, full of knowledge & humor. Getting a glimpse inside each faith is mind expanding. If you love knowledge for its own sake, attend.

It was the best lecture on Hinduism that I have ever heard. I now understand why I had a difficult time learning about it growing up.

Brian is a gifted and engaging teacher; but beyond that, it's obvious he loves world religions and the people that practice them.
