This course supports students of any faith tradition, or none at all, in learning the fundamentals of Buddhist meditation. While students only touch each of these practices, they learn the basics of concentration, ethical, wisdom and compassion meditations. The course aims to prepare chaplains and ministers for thinking about these techniques in their own lives and in their community support roles. The intention is for students to apply this knowledge to deepen practices appropriate to their lives and circumstances.
Notes: Concentration requirement for Buddhism and Interreligious Engagement students.
