Earth Based Traditions Themed Intensive

Dec 31st All Day

February 14-19, 2018

This module is available as either a stand alone course or as a part of a 2 module Eco- Ministry Intensive

Students will learn about Wiccan, Pagan, Indigenous, and Eco-Spirituality traditions and further their studies of various spiritual care practices, theological literacy and public speaking. Experienced ChI Guest Faculty representing First Nations in North America, and parts of Africa, students will provide teachings from these sacred worldviews at site visits in the Bay Area.

Our module programs are designed to inspire, nurture and educate those who are called to serve in an Interfaith capacity in our increasingly diverse world or for those who are interested in learning more about a specific faith tradition. Our innovative programs focus on a combination of the study of world religions, an exploration of mystical paths and teachings, and spiritual care and ministry skills... all in a creatively infused context. 

Students can take a single module or up to 3 modules total before they are required to apply for the full Interfaith Studies Certificate Program.  If one chooses to enroll in the Interfaith Studies Certificate Program following attendance in a single or up to 3 modules, students will be required to complete the necessary homework and coursework associated with those classes to meet the requirements.

The Interfaith Studies Certificate Program prepares students for spiritual service to people of all faiths and paths.
