TODAY: How Archetypal Astrology Connects Your Psyche to the Cosmos  

Are you called to adventure beyond your ordinary mind to pioneer a new understanding of life - one more deeply connected to the cosmos?
If so, you are very much an explorer of the frontiers of consciousness.
According to Stanislav Grof, founder of transpersonal psychology and researcher into non-ordinary states, and noted philosopher Richard Tarnas, archetypal astrology is the single most useful tool to ensure the safe exploration of non-ordinary states.
On Wednesday, November 29, these two renowned intellects will show you how to harness the power of planetary transits for your growth and liberation while exploring the frontiers of consciousness during their FREE online event, The Healing Potential of Archetypal Astrology: Optimize Your Timing for Exploring Non-ordinary States.

Their work goes beyond "sun-sign" pop astrology to address the larger tectonic forces at the depths of the psyche, a subject that Carl Jung also explored in depth.
During this fascinating hour, Stan and Rick will share:
  • The deeper reasons why transits of your birth chart are predictive of the kind of experiences you might have in a non-ordinary state
  • How to maximize the harmonious, transformative energy available to you in a session
  • Why avoiding hard aspect transits between Saturn and outer planets can be so important for avoiding oppressive, stuck, and unpleasant experiences
  • How to use the timing of Uranus and Jupiter in combination to create breakthrough expansions of consciousness and experiences of rebirth
  • Insights that can help you or your clients orient to a larger frame in the midst of a spiritual crisis - and help you understand natural predispositions
  • How perinatal psychology (related to birth) bridges with astrology and how COEX (Systems of Condensed Experience) systems hold a master key to uncovering deeper layers of trauma and patterns that might be holding you back
You'll begin to see how astrology can provide you with the most trusted calendar of auspicious times to do your deepest work.
So do join these two celebrated intellectuals as they lead you into a deeper understanding of life, new awareness of the underlying forces at work in our depths, and a healing recognition that we live in an "ensouled" universe.

Discover the Enneagram of the Virtues   

Are you ready to discover the deeper wisdom of the Enneagram... powerful teachings, which can accelerate your healing and growth?  
There are many teachers of the Enneagram, yet very few with the depth perspective of Russ Hudson, co-founder of the Enneagram Institute.
Russ views the Enneagram holistically - guiding his students to become aware of all 9 types within them, while working with our basic-type passions (fixations).  
Similarly, the 9 Virtues, which Russ calls "deeper heart qualities," are within each one of us... ... serenity, humility, truth, equanimity, non-attachment, courage, constancy, innocence,and right action.  
The teachings on the Virtues are seldom taught publicly... and on Saturday, December 2, you'll get a glimpse of this profound wisdom during a FREE online event with Russ Hudson. If you're ready to move beyond the basic Enneagram, he's truly one of the best teachers out there!  
Register here for The Enneagram of the Virtues:  
Discovering the 9 Deeper Qualities of Your Heart
Sign up to listen live or receive the recording 
The Virtues are aspects of your own divinity - and they must be discovered, cultivated, and continuously refined.

During this free event, you'll discover: 
  • The original, spiritual context and methods of Enneagram work - beyond merely typing yourself and others
  • A more compassionate (and intimate) way of being with yourself and others, using the Enneagram in service to love
  • The precise role of the heart in relation to your mind, body, and authentic gifts
  • Discover a meaningful way to work with all of your emotions, and to transform them into more energies for your growth
  • Markers of authentic transformation - the signs of genuine actualization of spiritual wisdom
Russ, co-author of The Wisdom of the Enn eagram, Personality Types, Understanding the Enneagram, and Discovering Your Personality Type, will show you how to cultivate more compassion for yourself, open your heart to true intimacy, and access your innate divinity.
Whether you've been studying the Enneagram for years or you're new to this time-tested wisdom path, I encourage you to register for this free event with one of the world's experts of the original teachings of the Enneagram.
