Dr. Lewis Lancaster Lecture on Enlightenment

What do the monk, neuroscientist, and basketball player have in common? Find out in Dr. Lewis Lancaster’s next lecture on Tuesday, May 18 at 7:00pm PDT, to be held remotely on Zoom. This will be the penultimate session of Dr. Lancaster’s “Buddhism as a Lived Experience” lecture series.

The topic for this lecture will be Enlightenment, which in Dr. Lancaster’s words “is like a distant beacon that always may be beyond our reach.” But, what if it is accessible? What then? What is it good for in our daily life? Dr. Lancaster tackles these questions and more.
