We will read:  A Heart as Wide as the World (stories on the path of lovingkindness) by Sharon Salzberg.

Although she advocates meditation...you will feel welcomed, enngaged and inspired whether you meditate regularly, sometimes, never or are even (ala Frenchy from Grease) a meditation dropout). She pivots off our humanity and natural human feelings to bring us to our shared hearts.  It will be great to hear which of her writings touched your heart.

Limit 6; pre-registration required with Birth information including time and location.

Each of the three days will include a mix of meditation, discussion of the 12 houses of the zodiac, with a focus on archetypes, or patterns, connected with each house. Typically 4-5 houses will be covered each session, with discussion about how these archetypes impact participants. There is light homework. The end result is a a "sense" or "feel" for what astrologers consider when they read a chart. That is why we do meditation -- these sessions are less about technique than they are about introducing concepts deeply, beyond just the intellect.

Valerie Weir is a certified astrologer from the school of Steven Forrest, and she has been in private practice for ten years. She is also a long-time teacher of yoga.
