Curt Lindquist teaches Religious Studies at Reinhardt University, a small university outside Atlanta, Georgia. He feels extremely fortunate to have a sabbatical for the spring semester 2017. Although he was trained in classical fashion at Yale and Emory in Christian history and theology, he received Fulbright-Hays grants to India and China. Those experiences inspired him to learn more about the world’s great religious traditions. During this sabbatical, he will spend six months in Taiwan, Myanmar, India, Egypt, Israel, and Spain. In several of those countries, he will have extended stays in religious communities. He has subtitled this blog “Experiment in Mind, Spirit, Body,” hoping his six month travels will enable him to learn not only about these religious communities but also about himself!
