Accepting the Call: Pagan Clergy Training
Meant to give a solid background for those who wish to take up the mantle of pagan clergy, this course covers the practical knowledge needed to lead any type of earth-based community group.
We begin soon!
This in-depth course will include live lessons available in person OR via Zoom, self-paced instructional content, and private as well as community assignments to provide a solid background for pagan clergy.
We will explore the ethics and expectations of a pagan leader in the community, and guide you through the creation of your own statement of belief, code of ethics, and a portfolio of ceremonies & rituals.
Completion of all lessons and assignments will give you the opportunity to take part in an initiation ritual for priesthood facilitated by Rev. Mela Borawski. If desired, you can be ordained at the end of this course as well. There is an additional cost, and paperwork that must be completed to become ordained.
Explain how different pricing options might be valuable to different segments of your audience.
