At DRBU you feel enlivened to pursue life’s deepest questions. Our nurturing community provides you the support to explore— academically, existentially, and spiritually. Whether you’re mixing chillstep electronic music, chanting Buddhist mantras, or venturing into the full-moon basked forest to read Emily Dickinson, come find yourself among like-minded friends on this ever-unfolding journey of self-understanding.

People here inspire me with their consistency, confidence, and honesty. I’ve heard from a lot of people who come to DRBU that this place helped restore their faith in humanity. I think there’s truth in that.
