Course Memo

This course will navigate the challenges and opportunities facing Buddhist Ministry within the setting of the United States. We will navigate issues of politics, power, and institutions alongside deeper personal understandings of social location, privilege, and marginalization within the framework of the Buddhadharma. In addition to considering these concepts as Buddhist teachers and ministers, we will practice dharmalogical reflection on the trajectory of our own lives, supporting one another together in this class, in order to cultivate critical and intentional foundations for our own ministerial contexts. Course will be offered in hybrid format..[Faculty consent required; Auditors excluded]
