This 4-day workshop is is based on my book Tracking the Soul With An Astrology of Consciousness and is suitable for anyone regardless of their knowledge of astrology.
For those that do know astrology, the book outlines not just the theory behind the astro-chakra system, but also demonstrates the practical application of this theory to real life. Everything you need in order to understand your own life issues and shift them with conscious intent is presented in the book.
Still, it can be a daunting task to actually do this work, especially for someone with a limited knowledge of astrology. To make the ideas in this book more accessible to more people, I have created this experiential workshop.
Although I will use the astro-chakra system presented in the book to help participants focus more clearly on specific life issues, the focus of the workshop itself is not astrology, but soul growth. At the workshop, we will not be using astrological language. Instead, this will be our opportunity to share our soul stories, learn from them and from each other. The workshop will also include authentic movement and other experiential exercises designed to help move the energy of insight into the body where it can effect deep and lasting transformation.
About the workshop, one 2012 participant said:
The concept is brilliant: Working on your core issues in a beautiful and powerful setting. Eating vegetarian food. Bringing in exercise and meditation to complement it. It was the first time that I really sat down and thought of my life in that way and it was helpful.
Another 2013 participant said:
I would say that it was life altering. I feel that strongly and I don’t say that lightly, perhaps because I’ve done some personal growth work before. I was ready to heal and I’m extremely grateful for this past weekend.
A 2016 participant said:
The workshop was really, really something for me. It was wonderful, scary, fun, sacred, mind-jarring, a time of growth and peace and a whole lot more.
Preparation for the Workshop
In addition to the workshop itself, there will be some advance preparation through 6 1-hour one-on-one sessions, I will help you determine which issue will be the focus of the workshop, identify your chosen issue with the relevant chakra pattern in your bithchart, and work out a cyclical time frame for tracking the soul story related to the outworking of this issue in your life. Each session will include a homework assignment, designed to help you enter more deeply into the process.
Together the 6 mentoring sessions and the 4-day workshop constitute a powerful synergistic package that can help you take your life to a higher level of conscious integration, creative self-expression, and personal empowerment.
Our 2018 workshop will be held from July 26 - 30 at Spirit Matters Centre near Almonte, Ontario, Canada. Since the mentoring prior to the workshop does take time, early registration is encouraged.
Each workshop is limited to 9 participants to allow maximum participation and ample time to focus the group's attention on each person. The cost for the entire program (including 6 mentoring sessions plus the workshop) is $1200. $600 (the portion of the fee that covers your mentoring) is payable in upon registration; the remainder is due one month before the workshop begins. Discounts and/or scholarships may possibly be available upon request for those who face financial hardship.
At the workshop, a further separate cost will apply for accommodation - which includes lodging and 3 shared vegetarian meals a day. We are still in the process of deciding how this can be done as smoothly, healthfully, and inexpensively as possible, We will get back to you as these decisions are made. In the meantime, please let us know if you have food sensitivities or special dietary needs.
After the workshop, an optional 90-minute follow-up phone consultation is available for half price (normally a $150 value). In the consultation, you can ask any questions you wish that arise from the workshop, in relation to theory or your own chart or both.

A Moveable Feast
In addition to our annual workshop, Tracking the Soul is a mobile workshop that can come to you, if sufficient interest and support are available. Each mobile workshop requires a local sponsor. The sponsor will be responsible for:
- helping with local publicity
- coordinating with all workshop participants and the workshop leader to find a suitable time and venue for the workshop
- helping workshop participants and the workshop leader to find suitable local accommodations and coordinate travel arrangements from the airport to the workshop venue
In exchange for fulfilling these necessary tasks, the workshop sponsor will receive free attendance at the workshop and 10% of net receipts (after expenses).
