HISTORY OF THE CENTRE

Our Foundations

The Centre for Myth, Cosmology and the Sacred was deeply influenced by the MA in Myth, Cosmology and the Sacred that ran for seven years at Canterbury Christ Church University, 2014-2021. Previously, a similar programme ran at the University of Kent from 2006-2011. Both MA programmes were created by Angela Voss and Geoffrey Cornelius and were utterly unique, making space for the academic study of esotericism and divination. These Masters programmes were supported by William Rowlandson and Patrick Curry at Kent, and Wilma Fraser, Simon Wilson and Louise Livingstone at Christ Church.  

Courses and lectures now offered by The Centre for Myth, Cosmology and the Sacred build and expand upon the wonderful work of the MA, as well as broadening beyond this; bringing in research expertise from researchers in the field of transpersonal psychology, transformative learning and Shamanism, to name but a few discourses.
