Queer Pagan Theology Crash Course
Nov 21 – Dec 18, Wednesdays, 8 ET
From our many myths of gender-bending deities to the celebrated statement that “All acts of love and pleasure are [the Goddess’] rituals,” Pagan traditions are full of queer-friendly elements. Unsurprisingly, Pagan communities are also full of queer people: some studies suggest that fully a third of all Pagans identify as gender or sexual minorities. This class will help students clarify their beliefs about gender and sexuality; explore how our religious practices could embrace more fluid and diverse gender and sexual expressions; and prepare students to advocate for LGBTQ Pagans in interfaith contexts.More info and register
The Wounded Warrior: Bringing Them All Back Home
Thursdays 8 PM ET, Nov. 16 – Dec. 14
War leaves invisible wounds upon the mind and the soul of our combat veterans. Here we’ll explore the impact of such wounds on the lives of veterans, including an increased risk of suicide. And we’ll discuss ways of intervening with these invisible wounded in both mundane fashion and through using methods more in tune with Pagan beliefs. The course will consist of a weekly group Skype session and individual work between sessions. More info and register
