Curt Lindquist teaches Religious Studies at Reinhardt University, a small university outside of Atlanta, Georgia. He feels fortunate to receive a sabbatical for the spring 2017 semester. Although he was classically trained in Christian history and theology at Yale and Emory graduate programs, he later received Fulbright-Hays grants to study in India and China, which motivated him to investigate the world’s great religious communities and traditions. During the sabbatical, he will travel to Taiwan, Myanmar, India, Egypt, Israel, and Spain. In Taiwan, India, and Israel, he will have extended stays at a Buddhist monastery, a Hindu community, and an ecumenical institute. He has subtitled this blog “Experiment in Mind, Spirit, and Body.” He wants to learn not only about these various rich religious traditions but also about himself!
