Hello Dear Readers!
If you are new to my blog or site, let me introduce myself. My name is Kirby Moore, and I have been practicing Western Astrology from a spiritual perspective since 2003. In addition, I have been practicing Somatic Processing (emotional-process-oriented bodywork) since 2005. The combination of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Polyvagal Theory, Somatic Experiencing and Birth Process Work (PPN – pre- and perinatal psychology training) is a rare set of skills to find in one practitioner. I have training in all of them, and when you add in the Astrology and the my contemplative practices as a Buddhist practitioner, there are very few, if any people out there who offer all that I am able to. Therefore, a few years ago, I first had the idea of blending everything I offer and calling it “Trauma-Informed Astrology.”
I sat on this idea for a couple years as I got my bodywork practice thriving. And in 2019 I began jotting down notes about potential classes and offerings. Of course, 2020 hit us all pretty hard. But I was still able to create some classes, blending Autonomic Nervous System material, Spiritual Astrology and gentle Somatic Exercises to assist us to move toward well-being and alignment. And in February of 2021 I began teaching (online classes).
The first level – Trauma Informed Astrology Fundamentals One has gone well. We are almost finished with the first eight classes for it. And in May of 2021, I am looking to teach the next level! Here is a little information of where we are in Level One (about to wrap up), then the level two info is below:
I am excited to be leading these classes. In class 7 (of 8) of Level One, we just began to look at a demo Astrology Interpretation! Even if a few of the concepts discussed are beyond what we have covered in this basic class, people are happy to see what the interpretation looks like, and how much information we can glean from the chart! And I am excited to include more Trauma-Informed concepts and techniques – we can talk about them all we want, but seeing them put into practice is where the learning (modeling / mirror neuron imprinting) deepens.
See below for information on Level Two – starting in May 2021.
We are wrapping up this first Trauma-Informed Astrology (Fundamentals Level One) class on April 15th. It has been a great group and I am very pleased with how things have gone.
It is my intention to start Level Two around May 20th (Thursday). Or if the majority of potential students would prefer a Wednesday evening time, we can adjust as appropriate. If you are interested, let me know (and also let me know if you are unable to do Thursdays). You can email me or leave detailed comments here: https://www.traumainformedastrology.com/contact
T.I. Astrology Fundamentals Level Two:
When: Eight Weeks – Thursday evenings from 7 – 9 pm Eastern time. May 20th – July 8th.
Where: this class will continue to be virtual on Zoom. In the fall, hopefully we will all feel safe attending these classes in person!
Cost: $325 – $275 sliding scale; if you register and pay by May 5th, early bird cost: $225
To Register: please email me here – https://www.traumainformedastrology.com/contact You can pay via Venmo – kirby-moore-2 or use my website here: https://www.traumainformedastrology.com/get-started/p/fundamentals-2
I am offering two pay-what-you-can slots for this class. Please contact me if you need this option. We will discuss it further.
Topics Covered: We will continue where Level One left off, blending information about the Autonomic Nervous System and the Western Astrology Natal Chart: on the nervous system side, we will delve deeper into the Window of Tolerance, there will be time to get into the Triune Brain, we will examine the Stream of Life model, discuss Explicit / Implicit memory, explore the HPA axis and the Amygdala / Hippocampus / Cortices anxiety loop and more! On the astrology side, we will continue to expand our knowledge about the Planets and what they represent, we will discuss the Houses of the chart and what they reflect plus we will explore the Aspects between planets along with presenting another demo Interpretation, so we can see how all of these facets come together. In addition to this great material above, we will continue to learn one or two Somatic Exercises for moving toward Well-being and alignment!
Prerequisites: In order to take the Level Two class, you need to have covered the Level One material. These class recordings are available on Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/T_I_Astrology And at $35 / month, this is quite a deal. You can subscribe for just a month or two and get the entire Level One class plus bonus material!
I will expect everyone attending this class to have watched all the Level One recordings prior to May 20th.
If you did not participate in Level One with us already, then I will also want to chat with you briefly to discuss how much support you have access to in your life. It’s important for all of us to be in a relatively grounded and resourced place to create a safe container for class.
Please let me know if you have questions about this class! I look forward to hearing from you!
Thank you for your interest!
