“A Tribute to Cosmos and Psyche: Richard Tarnas and the Intelligent Universe”
March 12, 2015 at 7:30 PM at 317 Columbia Street, New Westminster
Join us for an evocative PowerPoint presentation on the work of Richard Tarnas, expressed in his ground-breaking book Cosmos and Psyche. Through a series of vivid imagery and commentary, we will explore the effects of world transits at the present time, as well as back through history, with a special emphasis on the great Saturn-Pluto, Uranus-Pluto, Uranus-Neptune, and Neptune-Pluto cycles. I will also introduce Tarnas’ work with Stanislav Grof and how an understanding of stages of the biological birth process and the spiritual death-rebirth process can deepen our practice as astrologers and allow us to offer specific ways of dealing with planetary transits.
I offer consultations using Richard Tarnas’ in-depth, psychological approach to the natal chart, personal transits, and world transits. We can do sessions either in person while I’m in Vancouver or over the phone – I record the conversation and send the link to you.
Sessions generally last 75 – 90 minutes. $165 (I am happy to offer a sliding scale for students and those with limited income).
Every planetary alignment represents experiences that are happening or trying to happen. The more people understand the emotional impulses that are operating in their psyches, the more consciously and responsibly they can work with those tendencies, helping them to manifest in the most constructive and life-supporting ways possible. The study of astrology helps people to move in the direction that their deepest inner wisdom or inner healer is already trying to take them.
