Study at Home

The IDP offers the opportunity to connect with our community and teachers online through study at home meditation and Buddhist Studies classes.  Participants get an audio download from each week's class, the class reading lists, and an opportunity to correspond with the teacher.   Further community discussion is facilitated by online community journals, which allow any user to post a journal or discussion topic and invite the comments of others. 

Helen C. from the UK offers her experience participating in the IDP's "Intro to Buddhism" Course via Homestudy:

"I have really enjoyed learning and practising with the class these past 10 weeks: even though I am thousands of miles away in the UK, I have felt a part of something much bigger, and felt the energy of the group during the meditations. I have loved the way the topics have been approached with humour!"

What you get:

  • Audio Download of the lecture from each class - Uploaded 1-2 Days following each class.
  • E-mails with reading lists and related course documents
  • Opportunity to connect with teacher via e-mail
