Mimesis Academy

A one year program drawing from cutting edge research in psychology, anthropology, philosophy and theology, consisting of six courses.
– Exploring the unconscious movements that form our sense of ‘self’.
– Critically exploring the scriptures and the contexts in which they were written. Consequently, how they relate to other myths.
– Exposing the structure of evil and the development of its symbolism. Moving beyond mythical and abstract descriptions of evil.
– How God subverts our concepts of God.
– What makes Jesus Christ uniquely significant in history, relevant in our present world and a living hope for the future of humanity.
– Atonement takes on a whole new meaning when sin, evil, God and the nature of man have been re-evaluated in the context of Mimesis.
