In addition to the core curriculum of classes, Namgyal Monastery Institute of Buddhist Studies offers weekend intensive teachings on topics from both eastern and western traditions. The weekend intensives are geared to students of every level, often attempting to bring difficult topics into focus for the non-specialist. Teachers for the weekend intensives include the resident Namgyal faculty, as well as world-renowned Buddhist scholars and instructors from other related fields. The weekend teachings are excellent for those with busy schedules, those who are not able to attend our core classes, and those looking for specific areas of study ranging from introductory to advanced level topics.
A typical weekend begins with a Friday evening teaching that is free and open to the public. Saturday consists of a morning and afternoon teaching session. The weekends conclude with a session on Sunday morning. Occasionally, weekends will include an event on Saturday evening, such as a slideshow or video presentation.
