Dive into the Queer Mysteries through this 11 month online class. Queerness and Witchcraft have many points of connection, from the creativity that comes from a spirit of transgression, to the insight available from an outsider position, to the magick of speaking truth about ourselves and our experiences.
Who is this class for? If you identify as queer—non-heterosexual, non-cisgender, or gender binary—this class will help you explore the magickal qualities and spiritual wisdom which are part of queer experiences of many kinds and deepen your own practice as a queer witch. If you do not identify as queer, this class will help you learn more about the queer community and the varieties of queer experience, while exploring what these mysteries have to teach you in your own life and practice.
How is this class organized? Each class will include a gathering on Zoom video conferencing, which will be recorded for those who cannot attend, as well as 3–5 homework assignments each month to help you explore the topics more fully. Homework will be turned in to the teacher for conversation and feedback, and completion of all the homework will allow you to pass the class, and confer 11 Continuing Education credits to Temple Ministers.
What are the class requirements? This class requires completion of Witchcraft II or the equivalent.
