We are looking for an Evergreen faculty member to sponsor this Independent Study program in World Religions: Paths and Practices. Chaplain Fred LaMotte, who is an adjunct professor of World Religions at another college, and has published a book on the poetry of meditation, will do the teaching and provide his own honorarium. We just need the sponsorship from a faculty member.
'Paths and Practices: the World's Great Wisdom Traditions'
The goal of the course is for each student to develop their own authentic spiritual voice and practice. We will honor and explore ancient wisdom paths, and their modern voices. These paths include Yoga and Vedanta, Buddhism, Taoism, the Sufi poets, Christian mystics, Jewish wisdom, and Shamanic practice. Gathering is sat-sang (Thursday evening community circle), engaging in meditation, practicing 'lectio divina' (spiritual reading) of the great mystics and poets, writing our own poetry / prose journals, are essentials of the course.
If you feel drawn to the course, please go to this LINK for information.
