A Feast of Learning

We're moving our usual Discovery Week Online. You will learn lots! Here's what it includes:

  • On Sunday: Two introductory talks set the stage. One gives an overview of world religions. The second on how to see religions clearly, while being careful of some distorting lenses.

  • Weekday Mornings: Five talks, one each on five religions: Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam and First Nations

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

  • Extra Sessions: On Tuesday and Friday, you have the opportunity to participate in a small group conversation in an online breakout room. You will be learning a lot so this gives time to process, and to hear what others have noticed. On Monday, Brian will hold a special "Ask Me Anything" session where you can post questions about the week, about religion, or anything else that emerges. 

  • In Addition: You will get an electronic coursepack that contains highlights from the classes plus loads of additional information on each tradition. 

  • The whole week 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.
