There's A LOT in here — we're including a bunch of different teaching and communicating options so that you can learn and engage in the ways that are right for you. This is what you'll get
4 Weeks of Lessons
Each week, you'll get new materials: PDF lessons and workbooks and a weekly video lecture with Q&A.
Weekly Q&A Call
Each week, Fr. Shay will host a 60-minute video conversation to teach and answer questions pertaining to the week’s materials.
You'll be able to pre-submit questions if you can't join the session live. If you can tune in, even better, you'll be able to ask followup questions there too.
The Q&A calls are recorded so you can watch them at any time and still get your Q's A'ed :)
Interactive Online Community
Throughout the course — and after — you'll be part of a private Slack community to talk about the materials, ask questions, and share what comes up for you.
You'll have easy, direct access to ask Brian and Fr. Shay questions as well as hear from other participants. This is a great way to stay connected betewen live sessions, or if you can't attend any live sessions, still participate with the group.
