      Contemporary Global Paganisms

      Intro to the wide variety of Paganisms being practiced around the world. We will challenge scholarly definitions of Paganism and our own personal ones by attempting to trace common threads between many disparate traditions. Students will familiarize themselves with descriptions of contemporary Paganisms, then explore to gain first-hand experience with traditions not their own. 
      This is a required class for all Master's students and will not be offered again until Fall 2014.

      Goddess: Prehistory to Present 


      From at least the Neolithic, Goddess has been represented across continents through symbol and form. Through art and artifact, we will examine her history and co-create meaning for today, learning from the cultures of Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe lost pieces of our own story. We will also engage in relevant discussions concerning myth and language, bringing ourselves current in the academic discourse around women's roles and Goddess' power.

      Introduction to Fundraising

      Pagans in today's society are hard at work building the resources that will make their traditions sustainable for years to come, and that takes funding.  All fundraising comes back to some basic concepts about relationships. Learn to understand one of the greatest taboos in western society and in so doing lose your fear of fundraising. Students will design and get feedback on their own project. The instructor has many years of experience as a nonprofit consultant and former CFRE (Certified Fund Raising Executive).

      Leadership I

      Some choose the role of leader and some lead out of necessity or are catapulted there through crisis. Moving beyond "being in charge" to authentic leadership requires personal reflection and development, strong communication skills, advocacy, community building, problem solving and bridge-building, as well as the willingness and ability to develop the leadership potential in others. The characteristics of authenticity, integrity and spiritual depth, among others, are what lend credibility to leaders, particularly spiritual leaders. These qualities help to make the vision offered by individuals trustworthy and meaningful in community. In this way, spirit-through people-moves into action, is sustained and transforms.
