Ancient Greek Culture has been woven into the fabric of Western Civilization since its birth over 2000 years ago. We know about the teachings of Plato and Aristotle and their followers but what about the enigmatic figures that stood behind them? Figures like Empedocles and Parmenides that we will be exploring in this course. For me these practical mystics, you could call them Western Shamans represent a kind of jewel, hidden and forgotten in the fabric of our lives. They still walk with us but they've been sidelined... sometimes purposefully so.
But who were these ancient 'so called' Pre-socratic figures really? What did they practice? How did they view human life? and what can they offer to us today? To understand this its useful to explore more about Ancient Greek Spirituality. So that is what we will also be doing in this course! Many will be familiar with some of the Greek Myths and understanding the people who crafted them can help us understand and remember more of who we are.
What was was practiced in the ancient Greek Sancturaies dedicated to the Gods, the healing dream sanctuaries and at the great mystery traditions like Eleusis?
In this course we will go on a voyage of discovery into the world of Ancient Greek Spirituality and we will examine what we have can reclaim by exploring this aspect of our cultural heritage.
We will also explore and tune into what we can potentially rekindle in ourselves through the kind of 'soul remembering' that these figures knew so well. In many ways these figures were like Western Shamans and holders of Healing Lineages and can give us an insight in how we can approach Western Shamanism today.
