Therapy as “the Art in the Science” of Jyotish
Delivery is everything…An Astrologer must know all the necessary details of the chart and how to skillfully convey them. You must serve the evolutionary needs of your client and yet, not destabilize the client’s use of free will. One must consider the timing of the unfoldment of the client’s destiny, the cultural context in which they live, and the level of their personal evolution.
All Vedic Astrologers need training in the art of seeing karmic patterns as part of the therapeutic care of their clients. It is no different than psychologists who require years of training in assisting, but not interfering in the evolution of their patients.
Jeffrey Armstrong’s years of professional psychology & astrology experience will fast-track your abilities in this area.
Language as “the Therapeutic Tool” of Jyotish
Full day Intensive
Words are powerful…but do you use the same words again & again to describe a planet?
As professional Jyotishis, one needs to develop a more precise vocabulary so they can clearly explain the essence of Vedic philosophical concepts in both Sanskrit & English terminology. For example, terms like ‘debilitated’ and ‘exalted’ need better English definition.
Sanskrit concepts like atma, Brahman, prakriti, dharma, karma, gunas, doshas, devas, lokas, kala, Paramatma, grahas – which describe the Vedic philosophy all must be correctly explained to the client as the context of a reading.
Additionally, the nine grahas are departments of our being, and each planet ‘owns’ a group of words that describe the combinations possible in a chart. The Jyotishi requires an extensive vocabulary of English words that can describe the subtleties of each planet.
- This seminar Vedic Scholar Jeffrey Armstrong will delve into the linguistic issues and provide practical tools to improve the language skills of the Jyotishi along with providing handouts.
- This session will conclude with an empowering initiation into the Japa mantras of the 9 grahas.
