This past winter break I decided to join one of Jim’s Wisdom Study Abroad programs to India. Within the first day of being in this other world, I was very thankful to have gone with Jim as my teacher and leader. He was so informative and he became the father of our group very quickly. If he didn’t have the answers to our questions, he pointed us in the right direction. The tour guides and drivers that Jim had set up for our group made this an unforgettable experience.
The sites Jim took us to study at were outstanding, and the lectures we received each day were not only scholarly, leading us into the philosophy of some of India’s native religions, but they were in-depth, giving us something to really think about long after we left India. Some of our teachers, being Lamas, were able to really take us into the teachings of Buddha in a language that we understood.
I highly recommend joining in on a Wisdom Study Abroad experience. If you are debating whether or not it is something you want to do, just do it because you have no idea what you will be missing if you decide against it. Thank you so much Jim!
