Welcome!

Welcome to the Undying Stars Academy, where you will learn the language of the stars -- the language of the world's ancient myths and sacred stories.

Learn to hear the ancient myths in the language they are speaking, so that you can go directly to them, yourself, and discover what they have to say for your life!

The Courses

  • Comprehensive

    Clear and systematic explanation of the entire ancient world-wide system of celestial metaphor which forms the foundation for the myths, scriptures and sacred stories of cultures on every inhabited continent and island of our Earth -- and their dramatization of our alienation from our own Self, and the path to recovery.

  • Indefinite Access

    Course tuition includes ongoing access to your course for as long as the Undying Stars Academy remains open, and should the Undying Stars Academy ever shut down, you will still get a full year after that to access the course. No subscription!

  • Visual and Audible

    Each lecture is designed to present the material with several different metaphors and comparisons to make the material understandable and memorable, reinforced with visual diagrams, artwork, and abundant star charts, so that you will be completely confident that you will learn it and know it at a deep level.

Instructor

David Warner Mathisen

David Warner Mathisen's Star Myth Astrotheology is unique in many important ways, while also standing within a tradition of analysis stretching back over millennia, all the way back to Plutarch and Plato. Important aspects of Mathisen-style Astrotheology include: | Awareness of patterns connecting myths and sacred traditions of all cultures rather than the Bible stories alone, and showing how they all share a common foundation | | A focus on the role of all of the constellations as well as the Milky Way and in conjunction with the heavenly cycles all the way up to the cycle of Precession, rather than focusing on the zodiac alone or thinking that everything relates to the motions of the sun | | An emphasis on the central theme running through the world's myths which dramatizes the concept of Trauma and alienation from Self, while also pointing the way towards healing and recovery of Self | David is an experienced teacher, having been an instructor in the Department of English and Philosophy at the United States Military Academy at West Point. He has written nine books totaling over 5,000 pages exploring the system of celestial metaphor which forms the foundation for the ancient myths of the world, and is a frequent speaker at conferences, on podcasts, and at special events under dark skies looking up at the stars of the heavens.
