I've been toying with the idea of undertaking formal studies in Buddhism for a number of years. I'm quite academic and have 3 degrees already, all related to my profession.
Now I know I don't need to study formally and I know I don't need to get a qualification at the end of it, but something about that structured method of learning appeals to me. It would really focus my mind to just spend time practising buddhism and would get my family to "buy in" with me spending time doing it.
I'm not clear in my own head why I'm motivated to learn and practice that way and hoped to bounce the idea around the forums to see what opinions others have, academics and non academics alike.
