Working with Time: Past Future Present
Participants, who are just as busy and discerning as are you, describe each course as
"helping them make critical connections,"
"Actually helped my decolonization journey"
"The ReMembering for Life Course has had a transformational impact on my work and my family life. I am so grateful for my fellow students, the structure, and the opportunity to make connections."

Climate Change stems from Colonization.
If you don't understand that, you are living out of a dis-membered history.
Join us in a journey back to the traumatic beginning of the modern era: the mid-15th century and 16th century.
Re-Member the roots of our current social, ecological, and spiritual crises in the origins of colonization.
Delve deeper into the history of the United States of America, your own family history, and the creation of "nature", " property" and the role of the Doctrine of Discovery in enabling climate change.
Wondering into Wonder
A Course for Women Writers
This course cultivates a powerful community of women who write substantial pieces which are engaging hearts and minds with difficult histories, complex topics and socially relevant, provocative, and potentially culturally transformative writing.
Multiple styles are accepted. Previous students have brought children's stories, poetry, collage, comix, memoirs, fantasy, essays and creative non fiction. We engage in both the messiness and the magic of our work with all the seriousness of play.
Howard Thurman: Ancestor for Our Age
Mystic. Prophet. Theologian. Activist.
The man who traveled to India, met Gandhi,
and helped to translate "satyagraha" and "ahimsa" into the American context,
co-creating the intellectual-spiritual foundations for the civil rights movement.
As we enter the Anthropocene Age,
Howard Thurman is as relevant now as he was then,
and we all have much to learn from this brilliant preacher.
This 5-session experiential online course is designed to support
theologians, activists, mystics, faith leaders, seekers and teachers
in engaging with one of the most leaders of the last century.
