The annual online course designed for people just like us is back this October. SNS 101: Introduction to Spiritual Naturalism is a course for Naturalistic Pagans and others of like persuasion. Discover how our practices and beliefs fit into a wider spectrum of naturalistic movements, like Secular Buddhism, Humanistic Judaism, Christian Naturalism, Pantheism, and more.
This four-week online course hosted by the Spiritual Naturalist Society challenges you with meditations and integrated practices to bring the ideas presented into your life. This is an opportunity to reinvigorate your daily practice.
It also embeds meditation, ritual, and many other practices within the latest scientific research, revealing common psychological threads underlying them.
Finally, it helps you connect with others of like mind. Other students will be taking the course at the same time and going through the same experiences as you. Forum conversations let you connect and share.
You’ll also receive guidance where and when you want it. The course has a mentor (yours truly) that is available to answer all your burning questions, or even just to chat if that’s what you want.
Our own managing editor emeritus, the venerable John Halstead, took the course last year. So did Andre Sólo of RoguePriest.net, who published a review here.
There is no need to be a member of the Spiritual Naturalist Society to take the course. Everyone is welcome.
I hope to see you this October! Register today!
