About the Bartimaeus Institute

The "slow food" and "slow money" movements have worked to recover more holistic and relational approaches to important life practices.  Since 2007 our Bartimaeus Institutes have sought to do the same for discipleship education in a world of impersonal conferences and insular tertiary institutions (see list below of past themes).  

The Institute provides an opportunity for interactive and in-depth study of scripture and social justice in the Ojai Valley, CA with Ched Myers, Elaine Enns and friends.  Building capacity for both proclamation and practice, we study lectionary readings as they relate to particular themes of social justice.  Academic credit and limited scholarships are available; space is limited.  Join this village of learning and engagement!
