"Religions of the Axial Age" Video Course & Discussion (Continued)

What could the beliefs and traditions of a Zoroastrian, a Jew, a Buddhist, a follower of Confucius, and a Christian have in common? How do religions evolve over time?

In a continuation of the course offered Winter Quarter, this is an opportunity to relate your own spiritual questions to a variety of ancient quests for meaning and transcendence. Watching DVDs from The Teaching Company, you will learn the historical conditions in which the world religions arose, and how the religions answered shared human dilemmas.

The course helps you think about specific traditions while you ponder the common processes of religious development. You are welcome at any session even if you cannot attend the entire series.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
