Based on the book, Tracking the Soul With An Astrology of Consciousness, the Astro-Chakra System Course will lead each student through a series of 24-lessons on a personal exploration of all seven chakras, as they are reflected astrologically in the student's birthchart.
The first lesson will introduce the student to the koshas, knowledge of which will enable the student to track the evolution of each chakra on five interrelated levels of manifestation.
The next 14 lessons will cover the seven chakras, with two lessons devoted to each. Even-numbered lessons will present general information about each chakra in conjunction with instruction for identifying the signature for the chakra under study in the birthchart. In the odd-numbered lessons, the student will be led through a series of exercises designed to track the unfolding story behind the relevant astrological patterns in his/her chart to gain insight into the issues and challenges associated with the chakra under study.
Lessons 16-18 will explore interrelationships between the chakras.
The last 6 lessons will summarize the essence of the soul's journey, including the impact of current transits and/or progressions.
Each student will develop alchemical strategies for shifting consciousness in relation to the chakras currently being triggered. Throughout the course, students will be encouraged to discover and explore astropoetic images for each chakra – including, but not limited to, animal totems; correlates to film, literature and music lyrics; and dream imagery.
Pre-requisite: Students enrolled in this course must have completed the Basic Course, or demonstrated their astrological proficiency through an Advanced Placement Exam.
It should be noted by students with prior knowledge of and/or experience with astrology that astropoetics differs from traditional astrology in important ways, and advanced students may need additional exposure to basic astropoetic concepts before they can reap the optimum benefit from this more advanced course. Upon completion of the Advanced Placement Exam, a customized course of study will be suggested, where necessary, to prepare the student for this more advanced work.
All advanced students will meet for a 3-day workshop in the fall of each year, during which they will have the opportunity to explore the chakra signatures in other students' charts, and help facilitate a process of mutual exploration.
