In this 9-session workshop, you'll go on a transformational journey as you learn to experience the divine power that resides within each one of us and the world around us. You'll learn to understand the meaning and magic of the sacred circle, one of humanity’s most ancient spiritual symbols and practices. We will also explore how the circle connects us to the web of life, with the Great Mother and how to engage with Immanent and Immediate Divinity.
HOW THIS PROGRAM WORKS
The course itself is a self-paced, online course consisting of videotaped classes and rigorous fieldwork. You choose how quickly or how deliberate and measured you want to engage with the learnings. Support from our Elder Clergy via email is available to you at all times along the way.
WANT TO SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCES WITH PEOPLE OF LIKE MINDS?
If you're interested in exploring your experiences with others on the same path, you have the option of joining our newly launched Study Group program at no additional registration fees.
By joining the Study Group program, you'll refine understanding through discussion, foster creativity, challenge assumptions, stay better focused and on track with your practices. We've heard from many of you that having structured "classroom" time helps you follow through with your field work. And many love the opportunity to share experiences with one another. Plus, each Study Group is facilitated by one of our Clergy members.
HOW DOES STUDY GROUP WORK?
You'll enroll in the self-paced version, engage with the video lessons, engage with the fieldwork and then approximately twice a month, join in on our online Study Group sessions. After enrolling, we'll email you instructions on how to join a Study Group.
If you're not able to join us for a Study Group, you remained enrolled in the self-paced version and still receive all the benefits of the program.
If you've already enrolled in this program, you can still join the Study Group. If it's been a while since you've engaged with the course contents, we recommend that you start from the beginning with a beginner's mind. We are routinely updating the contents of our programs so chances are it's different than the first time you engaged with the course.

"As a result of taking this class, so much has changed! But the most important could be described as a kind of integration. I am specifically grateful for having so many “peak experiences” outside with more-than-human nature in which I felt like I slipped into a more expansive, slower, more vibrant rhythm/mode of experiencing life. I’m glad that I made time throughout each week to engage with the teachings/videos, to go out into nature, to practice what I had learned, to reflect on the field work, and to build this regular practice into my weekly schedule."
