exploring a secular dharma
After Buddhism: exploring a secular dharma is offered without a fixed fee; when you have completed it, you will be invited to make a donation that will ensure that others can go through the course also.
This online course provides an opportunity for secular Buddhists and those curious about secular Buddhism to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of a secular approach to the dharma.
Its key objectives are to:
- identify and explain the key concepts of secular Buddhism
- compare secular Buddhism with traditional, institutional forms of Buddhism
- sketch a vision of secular Buddhist practice for individuals and communities
The course is presented by Mike Slott. A part-time lecturer in labor history at Rutgers University in New Jersey, USA, Mike is a long-time political and labor movement activist who began a meditation practice in 2010.
He is a member of and practice leader at New York Insight.
The course will be available through the secularbuddhist.network website (there is a holding page here for now) for individual self-study and for people to go through in a group.
We will also be encouraging communities to enrol groups of their members in the course together, allowing them the opportunity to exchange views and experiences.
The course will be accessible in 3 ways:
AVAILABLE NOW: Self-paced – for individuals to go through it on their own
Community – for people to go through with a group of friends
Group – for individuals to go through at the same time with a cohort of others
