This series has already commenced

Faith is a thorny subject these days. Its negative expressions cause many to dismiss it out of hand—but Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel urges us to reconsider, for faith is really nothing but our natural proclivity to find certainty in a world where certainty is hard to come by. And if we look carefully, we’ll discover that the faith impulse isn’t separate from reason at all—faith and logic in fact work together in a playful and dynamic relationship that reveals the profoundest kind of truth—a truth beyond the limits of “is” and “is not.”

Practical aspects of online courses:
Students are requested to read sections of the text prior to the scheduled class. During the session Jakob unpacks and summarizes the text using a live PowerPoint presentation which is visible on the participant's computer. This format enables anyone to participate regardless of location.
Participants also have an option to download both audio and video recordings of the lesson if they are unable to join in real-time.
Participants may review and download any session as often as required.
