Core program: Cultivating the Mythic Imagination
From 2019, we are launching a core program of studies in cultivating the mythic imagination, which will be headed up by Hedge School founder Dr Sharon Blackie. The eight-week foundation course, ‘Courting the World Soul’, will be offered for the first time from October 21, 2019. In 2020, two satellite courses will be offered, focused on working with symbolic language systems: ‘Mapping the Psyche: a journey through archetypal astrology’ and ‘The Fool’s Journey: exploring the wisdom of the tarot’. In 2021, a third satellite course, ‘The Bardic Imagination’, will follow. (Details of these additional courses will be available soon.) After they’ve run for the first time, each of these courses will then be available every year. Please visit this page for more information.
This is a year-long self-study immersion into the field of Celtic Studies, by Dr Sharon Blackie.

‘The Voices of the Wells’ is an online interactivecourse for women, offered by Dr Sharon Blackie, which lasts for 16 weeks. Next intake will be early 2020; please visit this page for more information.
‘Sisters of Rock and Root’ is a unique year-long self-study experience for women who want to delve deeply into wild stories, myths and archetypes, and so to connect in a grounded, rooted way with the cycles and seasons of the year, and the themes associated with them as they arise in your own life. This course is focused on building a deep, embodied sense of belonging to the place you live in right now. Please visit this page for more information.
