The Earth Based Traditions module is offered every February as part of the Interfaith Studies Certificate Program at CHI . The 5-day course is both an introductory and experiential overview of the ancient communion between Earth, religion and spirituality. The module includes earth-based teachings from Paganism, the African Diasporic Traditions, and Native American perspectives, as well as drumming in community, ritual, and the Cosmic Walk (a ritual that celebrates our 13.7 billion year Universe story). CHI Faculty and guests representing First Nations in North America and parts of Africa, will provide teachings from these sacred worldviews in class, and at several venues nearby.
