Class Experience

US Grade 5 - 8
I received a BA in Cultural Anthropology from Tulane University, and wrote my Honour's Thesis on funerary and mortuary practices throughout differing cultural groups, and how these practices relate to spirituality and religion. The myths and sacred stories of cultures help us understand a variety of aspects of their daily life, and the secular and anthropological study of all spiritual concepts is, in my view, essential to understanding what makes us a global community.

Many religions, and particularly their mythologies, do contain some adult themes, primarily around sexuality and violence. Concepts such as incest among polytheistic deities or the commission of violent acts may be mentioned. They are addressed in a mature and secular manner, but will not be defined -- therefore, students should be familiar with, and not upset by, some of these concepts in an academic setting.
