Hellenion's Adult Education program has two sections: Basic Adult Education and Continuing Adult Education (still in development). Adult education programs are offered free of charge to members in good standing of Hellenion.

Hellenion's Basic Adult Education curriculum is designed to provide an introduction to Hellenic Reconstructionism for our members. It covers five areas: (1) history; (2) mythology; (3) ritual; (4) Hellenion as an organization; (5) the modern pagan community.

Time needed: Two hours per week for 12 weeks (3 months) assuming the course is taught in a Demos by an experienced teacher and the students have not studied any of the material previously. Solitary study could take more or less time. Hellenion is currently offering an online version of this course, in which lessons are sent out once per week. Please email the Επιστατες or for more information.

Completion: Completion of this course is optional for most members. Only those who wish to apply for our Clergy Education Program must document completion of this course to the National office, as Basic Adult Education, or its equivalent, is a prerequisite for clergy study. People who are not intending to be clergy do not need to document completion of this course unless their local Demos requires it. Completion of Basic Adult Education is not a prerequisite for any Continuing Adult Education courses.

The estimated time for completion of each of the five sections is as follows:

The development of this course is ongoing, in response to the needs of our members. Therefore, member feedback is essential to the success of this program. Please direct your comments to the Adult Education Director.
