Cutting Through the Fog: Psychology for Pagans
with Anthony Rella
part of the Solar Cross Presents class series
May-June, flexible schedule
sliding scale $90-$180
http://www.solarcrosstemple.org/solar-cross-presents/cutting-through-the-fog
http://www.solarcrosstemple.org/solar-cross-presents
http://anthonyrella.com

We are very excited to be launching a series of educational courses sponsored by Solar Cross Temple and designed to foster stronger temples, covens, groves, and individuals.

In this six-week online seminar, we will examine the relationship between psychology, spiritual practice, and the current state of mental-health treatment practices. Participants will read an overview of current psychological theories, descriptions of the most commonly identified mental illnesses, and writing on those disruptive experiences termed "spiritual emergencies." We will discuss ways to support those in our communities whom we suspect are undergoing mental health crises, including how to advocate for effective and culturally respectful treatment of Pagans and polytheists by mental health professionals.

This will not be a therapeutic group. Those who complete this course will not be qualified to diagnose or treat mental illness, but will be better informed and able to recognize when personal or spiritual experience might be veering into pathology.

Future classes:

July-August
Crystal Blanton
Restorative Justice: Rebalancing Community

September-October
Sharon Knight
Song of the Psychopomp: Singing to Soothe the Transition of Death

With the exception of three pre-scheduled video chats, class is in session whenever you have time set aside to show up. As these are intensives, we recommend scheduling the time on your calendar in advance.

Cost is sliding scale $90-$180 with some scholarships available. Those who pay at the top of the scale help those who need scholarships.

Class size is limited to 25 people.
We will use Moodle for weekly online homework and discussions.
We will use Zoom for three pre-scheduled video chat sessions.

To register, please write to solarcrosstemple@gmail.com

Crafting Spiritual Evolution: An Elemental Series
with T. Thorn Coyle
September-November, flexible schedule
online
sliding scale $300-$450 for each three month segment
class size limited, applications accepted starting May 1
http://www.thorncoyle.com/mystery-school/elemental-series

Deepen your quest for self-awareness, centered living, and spiritual connection. Join author and teacher T. Thorn Coyle in an in-depth exploration of the Elements of Life. We will spend three months exploring and opening, and a fourth month integrating the following, each in turn:

Air: Discernment, Self-Knowledge, and Soul
Fire: Energy, Will, and Action
Water: Intuition, Emotion, and Flow
Earth: Body, Manifestation, and Mystery

Once we have cycled through these four directions, additional work on Expansion, Deepening, and Centering will be offered for those who wish to continue.

These four courses are limited to 20 participants.

Course requirements: Daily spiritual practice, Weekly homework, one monthly video class session with Thorn and/or the assistant and student teachers - these are usually scheduled for Sunday mornings, pacific time. Other chats will be scheduled as needed. Our text is Evolutionary Witchcraft. You need not identify as a Witch to take this course. If you are not sincere about doing the work required, please do not apply.

We will work on Air for three months, take one month off to digest the material, and then continue to Fire and so on. Participants are encouraged to take the whole series to enable their personal practice, self knowledge, and connection to spirit to deepen and develop.

Registration: please contact Ankhira at info.thorncoyle@gmail.com

A letter of intention will be required via email. Please tell us what sort of training or experience you may have, and that you are willing to commit to doing the work outlined. This course is the foundational work of Morningstar Mystery School and begins September 1st.

The first round of letters for application will be accepted between May 1st and June 1st. If the course fills at that time, we will consider adding a second class.

This is a course for spiritual development and deepening, and is not tied to any initiatory tradition.

Cost: sliding scale $300-$450 for each three month segment. Those who can afford to pay near the top subsidize those who need financial assistance. It is possible to pay on a monthly basis. Some partial scholarships are available, please inquire.

People who have engaged with this work have found the mutual support and shared ideas and experiences to be invaluable. This sort of commitment to self and soul can be life changing.
