Hello Dear Readers!
I hope this finds you well. I am excited to be teaching this upcoming class: T. I. Astrology – Fundamentals One. Exploring the intersection of Autonomic Nervous System dynamics and Western Astrology – this is a very unique opportunity. It represents 17 years of study and practice of various potent modalities for me. See below for links to register and for more info.
I first started studying Western Astrology back in 2003. Over the past 18 years, my specialties in Astrology have emerged as Natal Astrology, Psychological, Timing Aspects and Medical Astrology. Then in 2005 I got into Craniosacral Therapy classes, along with beginning Zapchen Somatics training. During this time I also met sublime Tibetan Lamas – heart teachers of rare and precious wisdom lineages – and began to practice Tibetan Buddhism.
Then in 2012 I began to take classes on Working with the Polyvagal System. In 2013 I met Myrna Martin and started my training in Pre- and Perinatal Psychology (PPN / birth process work). It seems I did things a little backwards, doing these advanced, intensive trainings before I began Somatic Experiencing training in 2018.
Along the way I did over a dozen ten-day meditation and somatic processing retreats, and I also completed a dozen or so two-week teaching retreats on various topics – from meditation to Buddhist healing to various yoga practices. And then in 2020 I completed my first 90-day meditation retreat! And it was around this time that spirit pushed me toward teaching this current series on Trauma Informed Astrology. I had been toying with the idea for several years.
This is a beginner level course – 8 weeks of 2-hour classes. So we will be able to cover a lot. We start on Feb 18th (Thursday) from 6:30 – 8:30 PM EST.
I say this is a beginner level course, and it is, however people with astrology experience will get a lot out of it too! There will be somatic exercises every class – to gently assist us toward greater presence in the body. And there is cutting edge information on working with the Autonomic Nervous System, based on recent research and practice.
And once we lay a solid foundation of nervous system and Astrology basics, then we will start to discuss and explore ways that nervous system challenges show up in the astrology chart. And ways to work with it! This is all brand new, unique information. This class has never been taught before quite like this.
It builds on the incredible work of psychological astrologers like Liz Greene, Howard Sasportas, Jeffrey Wolf Green, Noel Tyl, Erin Sullivan, Melanie Reinhart and more. Plus it incorporates self-regulation techniques from Zapchen Somatics (Julie Henderson), from Somatic Experiencing (Peter Levine, Diane Poole Heller) and many many more modalities and tools!
We have six or seven participants so far, along with two awesome assistants! There are a few more spaces remaining. The cost is $250 (for all 8 weeks of classes). I am offering a sliding scale for BIPOC folk and I have one half scholarship remaining, let me know if you are interested and would need financial aid.
I hope you will join us. And certainly let me know if you have questions about this dynamic series!
