Enrolment for the programme is now open and closes again on October 2nd.
The Celtic Mythology programme runs every Sunday at the same time, evening (UK Time), mid-afternoon (ET) and mid-morning (PT).
Every week there are some pre-recorded video lectures to watch and sometimes some reading to do before you attend the Sunday Zoom call. The minimum time commitment (including the 1 hour call) is around 1.5 / 2 hours per week.
You are more than welcome to join us for the whole 2 year programme, or you can just follow any of the individual courses as they come up in the year.
You won’t be able to join a course in the middle, but you can leave a course and cancel your membership at any time.
