Our vision is of graduates who have facility in the basic awareness practices, are able to speak articulately about the fundamental tenets of Buddhism, and appreciate the rich and varied cultural traditions that have held the dharma over the centuries. Our aim is to present the various traditions as fully as possible, not blending them but celebrating the differences and commonalities. Our graduates will understand how these teachings have been incorporated into human experience across time and space, and how to apply them to their daily lives.
