"The Cosmic Mirror: Understanding Relationships through Astrology"

narcissus
&
"Mastering the Zodiac"

2-part workshop in beautiful, mystical Bali
with
Jeff Jawer
and Rick Levine

October 8th - 18th, 2012

During these workshops, the brilliant and highly entertaining astrologers, Jeff Jawer and Rick Levine will be working together in a powerfully interactive way with one another and in an insightfully personalised way with workshop participants.

Both workshops are suitable for students with a solid foundation in the field, but not for absolute beginners, basic astrology will not be taught.

Attendees stand to reap the benefits of their combined vast intellectual resources, humour and personal and professional experience. This world-renowned astrological team are both colleagues and close personal friends; while highly respectful of one another, their approaches to astrology are both diverse and complementary, creating the kind of rich, evocative and energetic dialogue that makes learning astrology such a joy.

The workshop is in two parts, each of which may be attended separately. There is a flow between these 2 workshops, and priority will be given to those attending the complete programme.

PART 2 - CANDIDASA BEACH, OCT 15-18

Mastering the Zodiac - following on from our theme of relationships in Part 1, we will travel about 1 hour and 15 minutes east to the ocean, and spend one day relaxing, and 3 days doing dynamic interactional work on how the 12 signs of the zodiac are the most integrated organization of personality types and cultural development. This experiential workshop will provide in-depth experiences of their substance and relationships to open their magical powers to all of us.

This part of the workshop will be spent at Pondok Pisang, a charming, quiet beach-side, simple but beautiful hotel. The facility here is small, and participants will be sharing accommodations for these few days.

Arrival Day for Part 1:

Monday, October 8th, 2012 - Everyone is required to arrive by this date so there will be time for acclimating and recovering from jet-lag (this night's accommodation are part of the Melati package).

Starting Day:

Tuesday, October 9th - We have chosen our starting time astrologically for 9:15 am, this our 1st official morning (see chart), with a very simple Balinese offering ceremony. We will ask everyone to be in the hall by 9:00 am. The rest of the day will follow the normal schedule.

Half Day:

Friday, October 12th - Since many participants are restricted as to their time in Bali, we allow a half day midway through this part of this workshop, so people can explore more of the area. Our session that morning will end around 12:30 pm. This will leave a full half day and evening to explore the island, go to the beach, shop or to spend an ecstatically hedonistic time in one of the spas.

Closing for Part 1:

Sunday, October 14th - We ask that everyone be packed and ready to leave Ubud before we start the morning class. Our luggage will then be taken to Candidasa, and the drivers will come back for us.

We will spend the morning in the Wantilan (meeting hall) in Melati, then at 11:45 am we will head straight up to Pondok Pisang in Candidasa, have lunch there about 1:45 pm. We will then take a 1 hour and 45 minute break to settle into our new "home".

Arrival Day for Part 2 :

4:15 pm -6:00 pm - We will meet in our new meeting place overlooking the ocean, for both the closing of part one and the opening for part two of our time together.

New Moon Ceremony:

Monday, October 15th - there is a New Moon, at 7:00 am in the morning we will head for an beautiful Balinese temple in Candidasa itself. Here we will join the local people in a traditional lunar temple blessing. This is of course an optional event, and women during their cycle do not participate.

We will return from the ceremony at around 9:30 am, have a late breakfast, then pack and prepare to travel to the beautiful White Sand Beach, about a 25 minute drive away, where we will have a picnic and day of relaxing and swimming in this idyllic spot. This is the most beautiful beach we know of in Bali.

**Should it be raining we will plan an alternative excursion**
