Doug Powers holds an MA in Philosophy and Religion from the Graduate Theological Union and an MAT in Political Science from the University of Redlands. As an early Western disciple of Master Hua, he has served in many capacities in DRBA over the years, including administering a refugee program at CTTB, serving as principal of Instilling Goodness & Developing Virtue School Boys school and for the last five years, as the provost of DRBU. Versed in both Western philosophy and Buddhist thought, Doug is constantly pushing the edge of how Buddhism can be brought into contact with the “modern mind.”
