Lecture Details

If Astrology is alive, how do we experience it? One way to experience astrology is to look at it in a different way, literally. Rather than thinking in words and literate terms, let’s render astrological archetypes, or symbology, in visual terms. Rendering the astrological pantheon in visual terms has many inherent benefits including bypassing the literate brain and accessing not only the subconscious, but also all of the collected visual and related data stored in each person’s databank brain. We will discover a new visual foundational framework from which to present astrology. Utilizing the power of imagery, consider, if you will, the planets as actors wearing the costumes or using the tools of the various Zodiacal signs while performing on one of the 12 stages or houses of life. The presentation will include an experiential session where everyone will have a chance to view their charts in a new way via AstroCards.

Workshop Details

Join us for our 2014 Astrodrama and Experiential Astrology Workshop. Experiential Astrology and Astrodrama are ways of acting out the planets in your chart, with the help of others, to give you an experience of how these energies feel and operate inside you and in your life.  Experiential astrology takes studying the stars out of a purely mental pursuit to include the body, mind and spirit.  Its somatic emphasis offers an opportunity to feel the energies, often accompanied by instant insights. The April/May issue (#168) of The Mountain Astrologer focuses on Experiential Astrology.  Within this issue Tom Brady describes: “…in the lexicon of philosophy, ‘experientialism’ is the position that concrete experience is both the origin and ultimate validation of all human knowledge.  Experiential astrology then, is any form of practice that conveys information through sensory impressions rather than language-mediated intellectual constructs”.
