Ryukoku University REC (Ryukoku Extension Center) Online Lecture Series —8 lectures—
Ryukoku University has hosted lectures open to the public for the last 30 years or so.
Although all our other lectures were cancelled due to the novel coronavirus, we have decided to host our public lecture series in an online broadcast format in response to popular demand from many of our past attendees.

A total of 8 online lectures will be presented in this series.
During this corona crisis, an increasing number of us are feeling the effects on our mental well-being. In this lecture series, we have prepared lectures that introduce some recently attention-gaining methods that will help us break out of these situations, such as “Thinking for Well-being”. In addition, we will present lectures unique to our university, such as “An Assembly of Buddhas and Gods: Outstanding OKAYAMA Treasures of Religious Art”, a lecture based on the two themes of “esoteric Buddhism” and “The syncretism of Shinto and Buddhism”.
Through this lecture series, we hope to propose a new style of mutual lifelong learning where attendees will be able to connect online with the university, and where we can learn from each other.
