Open for enrollments: Introduction to Johannite Practice

After some delays, the Practice course is open for enrollments. There’s not a great deal there right now, just a slightly cleaned up version of that opening talk, some notes and some reflection questions.

I considered recording that talk again, but the version that’s there was ex tempore and I quite like a lot of it. If I did it again, it would probably sound wooden. So I did some noise reduction on it to remove a lot of the background hiss. Hopefully, it’s usable.

What’s coming quite soon is a forum to discuss how the course is going for you and, before too long, Unit 2.

Expect this course to take a while, both for me to produce and for you to complete. Because a lot of the topics are practices, you’ll need to actually try them for a while to make sense of much of this.

Blessings of Advent to you. You can sign up using the link below:
