Study Groups (for NMV members)
Study Groups offer members the opportunity to increase their knowledge through in-depth research and learning about various aspects of Asian art, history and culture, and to share their knowledge with others in a friendly and encouraging environment.
Offered in English, French, German and Japanese three times a year, the Study Groups are gatherings of about ten to twelve NMV members who meet weekly for a few sessions.
Recent subjects include:
- Glorious Sri Lanka
- Exploring Thai Temples
- Mother Goddesses and the Feminine Principle
For each Study Group, an Orientation Session is held.
The Leader formulates the various research topics for participants to choose from.
This is followed by two weeks for research and by four weekly sessions in which the research is presented by participants to other members of the group, usually in the form of power point presentations and explanations.
Attending the Study Groups
Usually the orientation session is held from 10:00am to 12:00pm and the following weekly sessions from 9:30am to 12:30pm, with participants planning to arrive by 9:00am
