Dr. Lewis Lancaster’s final lecture from the “Buddhism as a Lived Experience” series ended last week with his talk on karma, titled “Behavior: Acts of Consequence.” That lecture capped off a wonderful and richly insightful series that attracted thousands of registrations over a nine month period, with friends from all around the world attending each month.
Dr. Lancaster’s lectures clearly resonated with audiences. His experience and knowledge, combined with his compassion, resulted in an invaluable resource for us. It would be remiss of us to not invited Dr. Lancaster to continue sharing his wisdom.
Therefore, we are thrilled to announce that, at the request of University of the West President Minh-Hoa Ta, Dr. Lancaster has agreed to give a new series of lectures for Fall 2021. Starting in August, the monthly lectures will extend to December with new topics and stories, to be delivered with Dr. Lancaster’s usual panache and charm. The lectures will be available again on Zoom to accommodate our friends outside Los Angeles and beyond.
As with the previous series, the new lectures are organized by the Department of Religious Studies and Religious Graduate Council, and sponsored by ISHB. More details about each lecture and how to register will be presented on ishb-uwest.org in the coming weeks. We look forward to seeing you soon!
UPDATE (July 23, 2021): Dr. Lancaster's new lecture series will be called "Encountering Life." The lectures now have dates. Please see below for the new flyer. Registration is also now open for the first lecture in August.
