Join an online reading group with Dharma Realm Buddhist University Faculty. Using the DRBU discussion method of shared inquiry, we will approach a text from DRBU’s curriculum which spans Asian and Western philosophy and literature.

What is Shared Inquiry at DRBU?

Casting the teacher as a guide rather than a director of the students’ learning process reflects an ancient pedigree both East and West. Here, good teaching does not tell the students what they need to have or know, but helps them explore what it is that’s worth wanting, and important, to know. The primary function of the teaching faculty and the university itself, then, is to encourage and assist students in the bittersweet task of answering these important questions for themselves.

Come get a taste of it!
