If you want to really learn about Native British Animism this course provides a wide and broad understanding (Pay what you can afford). Animism 101 is for all those who are interested in cultivating a greater affinity with a world brimming with intelligent presences.

Animists have for millennia had the intuitive knowing of nature as a great soul or psyche; as alive, filled with purpose, meaning and mysterious creativity.

The world is a vast animate (and hence ‘sentient’) being.

Animism changes lives


Aims

By the end of the course you should:

  • Know of the background of British Animism and how we got to where we are today
  • Know the various functions that we (humans) possess that enable our connection with and the ‘knowing’ the rest of the natural world
  • Understand how our functions work so that we can develop a relationship
  • Have gained an undertstanding of the numinosity within nature
  • Started to have developed the skills and practices that will form the basis of your relationship with the rest of the natural world for life

Description

The course is delivered over 23 lessons and is designed to be worked through slowly. The course is designed to provide a broad understanding, the depth will rely on how much work you put into it. Exercises are dotted throughout the course; the exercises are perhaps the most important, they will develop your practical abilities and help you to build your skills.

Lessons 1 – 4 The Introduction

Animism is something much deeper and more profound than any of the dictionary definitions portray. These lessons will help you to understand how the compulsive labeling, comparison and judgement of the analytical mind has created the mainstream’s missunderstanding of the term Animism.

Lessons 5 – 10 Cover the Knowing

Animism is about the cultivation of a deep, direct perception of reality, incorporating an embodied connection with the natural world that gives us life. Within this we develop a direct relationship with everything in the web of life. The perception/connection/relationship depends upon us developing the ‘knowing’ of the Animist. Human beings only have four ways of ‘knowing’, these are covered in this section.

Lessons 11 – 18 Cover The Numinous Nature of Nature

We talk about connection and relationship, but what are we relating to, what are we connecting with? What is the Numinosity (a strong sacred/spiritual quality) within Nature?

Lessons 19 – 24 Cover how to begin Connecting

We have looked at the functions that enable us to connect, we have looked at what we are connecting with. Now lets look at the how? How do we connect? This section is about the DOING


At the end of each lesson spend some time reviewing the information, thinking about how it may apply to your life, the way that you think about things and see the world around you. If the lesson has an exercise, spend a couple of days on it (at least) before you move on to the next lesson: READ, REVIEW, DO.

Animism is experiential, it connects you with the numinous (strong spiritual quality) energy in the rest of the natural world. If you don’t DO you will not experience and not connect.

The exercises are not ‘one-off’s’, they are designed to be practiced on a regular basis – as the saying goes ‘practice makes perfect’.
