Saturday, March 18, 10 am to 12 pm -  “Part II: “The Cycle of Saturn:  Death and Renewal of the King” with Judith Robert

COST: $20

Students who missed Part I may still attend Part II. In Part II this class will focus on the placement of Saturn in the chart, focusing on how to interpret based upon the element of the sign and house: fire, earth, air and water. We will review the position of transiting Saturn for those who missed Part I and the cycle for those who participated in Part I. Participants who provide their birth data in advance, will receive a printout of their Saturn Cycle. 

Because this class is being taught over two sessions, you may pay the class fee of $20 for Part I to receive a copy of the first class PowerPoint. But this is not required. 


In alchemical tradition, the astrological planet Saturn was associated with the “Old King,” whose death and transformation brought about the renewal of the kingdom.   A psychological reflection on the planetary cycle of Saturn can reveal the story of our engagement with Shadow and our search for manifestation of our life goals. Participants who provide their birth data in advance, will be able to apply the timing of the Saturn Cycle to their chart during the class. This class will be taught over two sessions. If you are only able to attend one, you may pay to receive a copy of the class PowerPoint and audio for the class you are not able to attend. RSVP to JudithARobert@gmail.comwith your date, time and place of birth.


Judith Robert received her diploma from Liz Greene’s Centre for Psychological Astrology in London, in 2011, her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Northwestern University in Evanston in 1984 and her diploma from the Jung Institute in Chicago in 1995.  She has a consulting practice in Psychological Astrology in South Bend, IN.  Judith can be reached at Website

Do you feel stressed and unable to find time to just Be? Do you find it difficult to meditate at home with so many distractions? Come join us on Sunday mornings. According to the great mystic Meister Eckhart: “Wherever this Word (of God) is to be heard, it must occur in stillness and Silence. We cannot be of greater service to this Word than through stillness and silence. There we can hear and understand it correctly.” Sermon 18. We will begin the hour with 20 minutes of silent meditation. We will then do a 5 minute silent walking meditation followed by another 20 minutes of silence. For more information e-mail

About this workshop: 

What is the one thing that you spend the majority of your time thinking about, worrying about, contemplating, analyzing, trying to fix, figure out, etc?

In a recent workshop that I did where I asked this question, I also asked participants to tell me how long they had been actively “trying to” shift this one thing. 

The average response was TWO decades. AVERAGE! It ranged from two years to 40+ years. Why does it take us so long to come into alignment with what we truly desire?

**Why do we struggle to heal our body, quit smoking, lose weight?

**Why do we struggle to find meaningful work, quit a job that we hate, or start that business we have always dreamed of?

**Why do we struggle to find love, keep love, and create connection and meaning in our relationships?

**Why is it so hard to find the space, time, energy, and money to do the things we have always wanted to do?

The reason is that most of us, most of the time, are not operating in a state of alignment. Alignment is a state of being where your desires, beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and actions are harmonious and coherent with each other.

Alignment, however, is only 1 of 4 possible states of being and our past experience, conditioning, and trauma create a default pathway of habitual thoughts, feelings, and behavior that keep us from regularly entering into a state of alignment. It’s why we feel like we are constantly paddling upstream or struggling just to stay afloat.

In Aligned: Why you aren’t healing and what you need to know so you can, you’ll learn about these 4 states of being including what alignment looks and feels like as well as how to avoid the trap of the other 3 states of being so that you are intentionally creating the optimal health, well-being, and consciousness that your soul came here to experience.

About the Instructor:

Cassie Seal is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Craniosacral Therapist, and Somato-Emotional Release Practitioner. She has been a student of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Yoga, and Buddhist Meditation for more than 10 years and has had a private practice for over 7 years in South Bend, Indiana. She is passionate about shifting the current medical paradigm and revolutionizing the way in which we heal as human beings.

Thirteen years ago, Cassie experienced a health challenge that would forever change her beliefs about healing. She struggled for over 5 years to “correct” her digestive health - radically overhauling her diet, consulting with multiple doctors and therapists, acupuncturists, and chiropractors - finding relief, but never healing until she discovered the root of the problem. Since then she has experienced not only a healing of her physical body but a radical transformation of her entire life. She has worked with hundreds of clients over her career helping them to achieve healing in their physical form, their relationships, life and work. Her 

Aligned workshop is essentially the system she discovered to heal herself and that she now uses to help her clients experience the same radical transformation that she experienced.


On Friday, March 31st at 7 pm

Kirtan is a listening and interactive sound healing experience. Using call and response chanting withomi easy, repetitive melodies and joyous danceable rhythms, the songs are sung in the ancient languages of world religions. They set free the chattering mind, deepen the breath, and create a state of calm, where the eternal love that lies in each heart can unfold and open. All ages and faith traditions welcome. Bring a cushion for floor sitting or sit in our chairs.

This class is a safe space for quiet inward focus. We begin with mindful yoga to prepare the body for a series of Restorative poses that are held for 10-15 minutes. Restorative Yoga is a restful practice that is about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. It is a practice of deep relaxation that emphasizes the meditative aspect of yoga. When the body relaxes, the mind can also consciously relax, leaving you with a sense of calm, peace and focus.

Please bring warm socks, sweater, eye bag or any other personal props to assist in your comfort.
