More 3-Day Online Workshops Coming in June!
The traditional school year is winding down, but in the Royal Fireworks Online Learning Community, we roll out new opportunities for children to learn year-round. We’re excited to announce that our award-winning curriculum author and instructor Ingrid Klass will be offering three different three-day online workshops during the month of June!
Each of these live online classes will introduce students ages 10-18 to a different world religion, giving them a picture of the history, spread, impact, and current practices of three of the most important religions in the East that have influenced Western thought. There will be no assignments for these courses, just a forum for gathering online to learn and discuss.
Hinduism WorkshopMonday, Tuesday, and Wednesday June 6th, 7th, and 8th 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time
Many Americans are familiar with yoga but might not know much about the tradition it comes from: Hinduism. Hinduism is a complex and multifaceted religion practiced by more than a billion people living in India and worldwide. This thriving faith has ancient roots and a multitude of modern expressions and encompasses many understandings of divinity. This workshop will introduce students to this vibrant religious and philosophical tradition that began 3,500 years ago and that continues to shape people’s lives and the world today.
Jainism WorkshopMonday, Tuesday, and Wednesday June 13th, 14th, and 15th 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time
Jainism was the world’s first religion to set up a nuns’ order, thus acknowledging that women were capable of reaching the same spiritual attainment as men. A thriving tradition going back more than 2,500 years, this Indian religion has influenced non-Jain figures such as Gandhi and, by extension, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This workshop will introduce students to this rich faith that emphasizes nonviolence and the multisided nature of truth.
Buddhism WorkshopMonday, Tuesday, and Wednesday June 20th, 21st, and 22nd 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time
Have you ever been curious about Buddhism? Maybe you know about mindfulness or have heard people use the word zen, but where do these ideas come from, and what do they mean? How do people across the globe practice this religion, and why are Buddhist ideas, first articulated 2,500 years ago by a man living in India, still so inspiring and interesting to people today? This workshop will introduce students to this philosophy and religion, from its roots to the diversity of Buddhist practice today.
Each workshop is only $90. Give kids the gift of expansive thinking and a deeper understanding of Eastern culture. Enroll today!
