Develop your capacity to lead with integrity in a spiritual community (prerequisites apply) .

This course will explore methods of servant leadership in support of Buddhist/spiritual communities, with a particular emphasis on cultivating the inner and outer qualities of skillful community ministry. Students will develop their understanding of our impact on others and increase awareness of how issues such as equity, trauma, ethics and so forth inform the ways in which we share and represent the dharma. This course will help strengthen students’ understanding and practice of compassion for others, including discussion of contemporary application of skillful means, co-constructing spiritual practice environments, facilitating group practices, religious education and pedagogy, working in relational dynamics, and integrating these pieces into one’s personal service.
