The Year and a Day class offers an eclectic and unbiased overview of the various Traditions of contemporary witchcraft and neopagan practices. The focus is on common elements and themes among the Earth-based spiritualities. The study is oriented toward the needs of those who are early in their explorations of pagan spirituality, but may have value to anyone who is looking for a global view of these modern versions of ancient practices. The link above goes to the syllabus and course schedule that is handed out in the first class.
While completing the Year and a Day course is a prerequisite of initiation into Lyceum, there is no expectation of that happening. Lyceum’s focus is on teaching. Most of those who complete the Year and a Day class find other groups that better fit their personal spiritual paths.
The The Ordination Study Group uses an eclectic approach to learning how to minister within the context of Earth-based spiritualities. Entry into this advanced study requires completion of the Year and a Day course, initiation into Lyceum of Trees, and maintaining a dues-paying membership in Lyceum ($20/yr). This is a three year course. The anticipated result is a new member of the pagan clergy who has same kind of competencies and skills as the priests, ministers, and rabbis of mainstream Christian and Jewish faiths.
