Brian can offer a series of lectures, deliver keynotes, or organize customized programs. He speaks to the public as well as corporate and educational settings. By combining humour and insight, Brian helps you gain the most from his years of academic and experiential learning. Here’s what some past attendees have had to say.

As a life-long learner,

Brian’s week-long World Religions Seminar provided me with an intellectually stimulating, in-depth, emotionally satisfying — and well-nourished — introduction to the inter-connections among apparently diverse world religions. As a retired preschool-to-university educator, I was impressed with Brian’s organization of the voluminous material as well as his smooth instructional skills. I highly recommend participation in any of Brian Carwana’s courses, especially the residential week-long seminar.

“the information provided was not mere food, but a banquet for thought”

Susan Perenack, York University Women's Association

“Brian is a gifted and engaging teacher; but beyond that, it’s obvious he loves world religions and the people that practice them”

Sarah Kurlowich, Columbia, South Carolina

“I expected to learn something over the week, but this course far exceeded my expectations. This was a very immersive week of learning, and not only that but full of great experiences. Brian was a great facilitator and I really appreciated his style of teaching. The lessons were well paced, well organized and very informative.”

Theresa Allott, Discovery Week Participant

“You gave our staff a way to orient themselves around the world’s faiths…they learned more in an hour and a quarter today than they have in their entire life about religion”

Hiren Mistry, Equity and Inclusive Education Coordinator, Peel District School Board

A Journey of Discovery

For those of us who are on a journey of discovery and still trying to define our beliefs, this week is a goldmine. The opportunity to learn so much about so many different religions and to interact with lay people and religious, was invaluable in advancing my knowledge. I felt like I was stuck on my faith journey for the last couple of years. This course un-stuck me. I feel like I traveled a long way in the past week. Best investment of time I’ve done.
