Being Mythic: An Introduction to Hindu Mythology
April 30th to June 18th, Mondays 9pm EST
I’m very pleased to present, “Being Mythic: An Introduction to Hindu Mythology”. This highly interactive, online course is designed to teach you about the vast, colorful world of the Hindu Pantheon in a clear, organized manner. Using the Chakra System as our guide, we will work our way from the root (Ganesha, The Lord of Auspicious Beginnings) to the crown (The Guru, Remover of Darkness). Along the way we will have darshan of all of the major figures in Hindu Mythology, as well as many of the more esoteric characters. Assignments will be multidimensional in nature, and ask you to practice in a variety of ways and convey your understanding using a variety of methods.
- Kali and Durga
- Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva
- The Dasa Mahavidya
- The Avatars of Vishnu
- The Ramayana and The Bhagavad Gita
- and so much more!
This class is being sponsored by Woolston Steen Theological Seminary. WSTS is a really interesting and ground breaking institution. Their classes are held on a virtual campus, using an online service called Second Life (Click here for secondlife.com) and assignments are given and handed in using a forum called Moodle (click here for the WSTS moodle). It is an amazing opportunity to interact with a worldwide community of spiritual seekers, and have a deep experience of the subject matter in a setting which is both highly advanced, and really, really fun. If it interests you, this class also counts towards a degree in theology from WSTS.
