"As above, so below!"

This course is open to both "old" and new students! There is no prerequisite. Anyone can join!

I have a passionate interest in cultural astronomy, a field consisting of studies in the field of archeoastronomy (the astronomy of earlier cultures and civilizations) and ethnoastronomy (the astronomy of non-Western or indigenous peoples).

It has been stated that all world mythology is based on night sky observations. In our culture we are deeply immersed in one particular conceptualization of the night sky, but actually they are many others!

As the course proceeds I will encourage you all to research the stare lore of your ancestors and the places where they lived!

Join my friendly and very welcoming community of students!

My plan is to make a closed FB group for these classes, allowing participants to stay in touch and share all and any discoveries they make along the way!

See you on January 26th!

(And if you join later, you will be able to catch up by means of watching the earlier recordings!)
