Hello Dear Readers,
In case you are not aware, I am offering Trauma-Informed Astrology classes starting in February of 2021! You can find a link to more info here (as well as how to register): https://www.mkirbymoore.com/classes.html
The first class is Fundamentals 1 – for beginners and people with a passing interest in astrology. We will start with the basics of nervous system dynamics – what is trauma, what isn’t it? what does stabilizing the nervous system look like? How can we connect to beneficial resources? And we will go through gentle somatic exercises to invite healthy embodiment. In addition, we will go into the basics of the horoscope as well – the foundations of the astrological birth chart – the zodiac, the elements, polarities and qualities. This course is a series of eight two-hour classes – really a full course covering a broad amount of information. You will get A LOT out of taking the class!
Then… I have decided to offer a second class – this one for serious amateur and professional astrologers. Trauma Informed Astrology: Fundamentals 3. This class would begin in March. See the poll below to vote on what time would be best for you. This will cover similar nervous system material as the above class, however, we will dive into how nervous system challenges manifest in the birth chart much sooner, in a seminar / discussion format. We will still do gentle somatic exercises because we must establish safety before the nervous system can settle.
This class will also be eight weeks long, like Fundamentals 1 starting in February. I am asking a sliding scale of $300 – $250 for Fundamentals 3. It would also be two-hour segments. There is guaranteed to be new material offered here – rarely (if ever) has such a detailed class about the nervous system been offered, as seen through the astrological lens! Of course this class will build on significant strides that have been made in psychological astrology, medical astrology, trauma resolution modalities, polyvagal theory research, etc.
See below for admission criteria.
Thank you for reading and if you might be interested in these classes, please reach out and let me know. Also if you have questions or comments!
Admission Criteria: for any class on Trauma-Informed Astrology, I am setting these boundaries for safety: people who have a problem with alcohol or recreational substances, or those who are suffering from suicidal thoughts, should work with an appropriate (licensed) mental health practitioner first before taking these classes. People attending these classes want to work on their stuff, to take responsibility for their healing process and are ready and desiring to adopt healthy self-care exercises to settle their nervous systems on a deeper level.
