Journey into the Heart of Karma
An Experiential Workshop on Astrology and Past Lives
The past is never dead. It's not even past.
Karma is often conceptualized in the West and in current ‘new age’ thought, as a simple “eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth” rule. The apparent truth is far more subtle and actually much more compassionate than that….as the intention behind carrying ‘karmic imprints’ is one of healing and wholeness, not punishment and retribution. When we work with ourselves (and others) from the compassionate understanding of the larger cycles and conditions we carry life to life and collectively all are a part of, we become empowered to facilitate change rather than mindlessly repeat the patterns of the past. In this workshop you will get intimate with your own personal karma through past life regression and your natal chart.
What better place to make this journey than in India!
You are living your past lives now…
In this moment, here and now, you are the summation of all of your past. That past stretches beyond this life, to previous ‘selves’ that condition your experience and ability to act in freewill, as much as your current life childhood does…..you just may not ‘remember’ them. Just like childhood, we have become who we are through both empowering and wounding experiences. We bring both… strengths and weaknesses from our past into the present, which of course, affects our future. We will explore this dynamic as it is reflected in the South and North Node of the Moon and Natal Pluto and its polarity point.
Our time Together …
Starting with an over view, we will explore the dynamics of karma and soul wounding, and how past life traumas imprint on all the subtle/energetic bodies (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual) resulting in ‘karmic complexes’. From there you will learn the ‘basic karmic axis’ as used in Evolutionary Astrology (The Jeffrey Wolf Green School) as well as a detailed understanding of how each archetype expresses itself in past life experiences. You will also learn how karma is understood through your natal chart and learn how to see the ‘soul dramas’ in others charts as well.
Then the fun begins… through a combination of demonstration of the regression process, group regression and ‘active imagination techniques’ you will explore your own psyche, to uncover some of your own karmic history as well as be guided to help bring it to resolution. Many times, the deepest part of our authentic self, which hold the highest potential, remains clouded and unrealized, buried beneath past hurts. We will also explore these latent potentials and work to bring them into the light of consciousness.
