Online secular Buddhism study course

Use this structured study course on secular Buddhism to study on your own at home or with friends. It is made up of a series of recorded talks by Stephen Batchelor with study guides used at Upaya Sangha of Tucson from September through December 2014.

Heartfelt thanks to Christine Johnson for creating these study guides and sharing them.

This course is available here.

    If you will be offering this course, I would be happy to help you in whatever way I might. It happens that I’ll be without email until February 3rd but can reply on the 3rd or the 4th.

    In Tucson, Arizona, dharma programs are offered by Theravadin, Insight, Zen and Vajrayana communities. The majority of offerings are introductory and are easily accessed by those just entering the dharma.

    While a few individuals did critique the two courses I created using Batchelor’s lectures, commenting that it is “too academic” or “too difficult”, averaging the drop out rate in the two courses, it was 29% with 17 registering for the 1st offering and 19 for the 2nd.

    Since we have a core of people who will work through a study guide, contribute to discussing the material, and appreciate the conversation, there’s no reason to go to more “accessible” material given the availability of accessible dharma teaching in the neighborhood…happily!
