All is revealed in my new post at University of the West’s Dharma Dialogue blog!

For the uninitiated, Dharma Dialogue began last fall with a course taught by UWest’s Chair of the Religious Studies Department, Dr. Jane Iwamura. That course was “Buddhism in the U.S.”, and the posts from the students generated much conversation in the Buddhist blogosphere.

This semester, it has been handed off to myself (representing the Buddhist Chaplaincy Department at UWest) and the students in my “Spiritual Leadership” class. We hope you’ll come by and take a look at what we’re up to! Though it has arrived a bit late, my post might be a good place to start for context. Check it out here.
