Road Scholar
Program #21801RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

The Dynamics of Faith
Study the multiple meanings of the word “faith” and a cluster of other words related to it. With an instructor who has taught courses on faith at the university level, explore the core elements of the topic in various faiths, and discuss problematic issues like doubt and others of particular interest to you.

The Idea of the Devil
Examine the concept of evil and its personification in the form of the Devil. Begin with ancient cultures such as the Egyptians and Persians and progress to ancient Israel and Christianity.

The Origins of Buddhism
In a historical and cultural survey of the Buddhist religion as it developed in ancient India, encounter important Buddhist doctrines, philosophies, ritual practices and forms of devotion. Learn how the central concerns of Buddhism have shifted over time as you read primary texts in translation.
