The participants will benefit from a diversity of learning material (both reading, and audio/visual) that have been developed especially for the Yale’s Online Himalayan diversities course and the Forum on Religion and Ecology courses, as well as existing seminars and training materials for graduate students and young scholars at the Center for Trans-Himalayan Studies. With the of aim of complete immersion, participants will be able be fully engaged with scholars for a five day period.
