Saturday, May 6th – Day of Arrival. Welcome!

6:00-7:30 pm: Dinner

7:30 pm: Introductions with Kaypacha & the Astrologers


Sunday, May 7th

maurice-site6:30-7:30 am: Maurice, Yoga. Maurice has been combining Kundalini Yoga practice with Astrology in his teachings since his own experience with the yoga directly stimulated higher spiritual realization. The practice is a safe and organic way to access the timeless and simultaneously strengthen our immune system. His style is entrancing and poetic.

rick-site9:00-10:30 am: Rick, Keynote Speech, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Uranus (but didn’t know what to ask) Expect the unexpected, as if that is possible. But Uranus is the planet of the impossible, the improbable and the instantaneous. We know that Uranus brings shock and awe, but why? What does Uranus have to do with Nikola Tesla, alternating currents (AC) and planet waves? How are lightning, the nervous system, electricity and awareness tied into the story? And, of course, how do we interpret Uranus natally, by transit and in synastry?

christina-site10:45-12:15 pm: Track 1, Christina, The Four Elements – Fire, Earth, Air and Water: Each of the 12 zodiac signs aligns with one of the 4 elements, representing primary energy patterns on Earth. Understanding the relationship between the sign and its element deepens our understanding of the organic and psychic nature of the sign and how it relates to our human experience. Christina will walk us through the attributes of each sign and how they are expressed when balanced and unbalanced. You’ll see how these elements are expressed through your own natal chart, which helps attune you to what you’re drawn to and what nourishes your physical, emotional, mental and ego nature.

patricia-site10:45-12:15 pm: Track 2, Patricia: Lunar (re)EvolutionTo the extent that I managed to translate the emotions into images– that is to say, to find the images which were concealed in the emotions– I was inwardly calmed and reassured. Had I left those images hidden in the emotions, I might have been torn to pieces by them.” C.G Jung – Memories, Dreams, Reflections

Image and emotion are both domains of the Moon in the human psyche and when consciously worked with, can release enormous evolutionary potential. By engaging the subconscious, on its own terms, rather than subjugating it to the limitations of the rational mind, one invites the power of the Lunar Goddess to lead the way to emotional/soul renewal and evolution. Get comfortable and slip into something a little more ‘irrational’, as we follow the silvery light of the moon deep into the inner lunar landscape…to meet this Lunar Goddess and learn directly from her, what she has long desired to reveal to you. Further, after learning about the Lunar and Solar inner child (our Soli/Lunar nature), Patricia will lead you in an exercise inviting ‘her/him’ into the light of your consciousness for further healing and integration. This is an experiential workshop…so put your notepads away and come prepared for an inner journey. 

sol

3:00-4:00 pm: Experiential: Sol, One-Body-Experience: The right kind of trust is essential for our well-being. The open heart is trust, but when the heart is closed, people separate and act in fear. The chance for hurting others is then possible, as we stop considering others and act in our own separate bubble. Truth leaves us. As Neptune is in Pisces we will increasingly feel the energy of each other and of the world. Learning to trust what we feel and our intuitions will release a great deal of fear. In this experiential we will explore ”I” and ”us” as we come together as one energy body.

EugeniaSite4:15-5:30pm: Track 1, Eugenia, Accessible Astrology -Utilizing Myth, Metaphor and Visualization Oftentimes, astrology can seem abstract and distant to the novice client, leaving them confused and bewildered as to how the astrologer has interpreted their information.  As a trained psychotherapist, Eugenia has been able to merge the art of astrology with her training in mental health to help explain astrology in understandable and accessible terms.  In doing so, Eugenia has created unique methods in her practice, utilizing tools such as myth, metaphor, and visualization as a sort of bridge for clients to understand their charts.  Bridging modern day psychotherapy and its practices with astrology has been profound and affecting for clients. In this lecture, Eugenia will present some of these techniques that are particularly effective in conveying astrology to those new to this practice.

maurice-site4:15-5:30pm: Track 2, Maurice, The YOD – Configuration for the Masterful. Composed of two quincunxes and a sextile, the Yod is often referred to as “The Finger of God.” This pointed-shaped configuration requires the highest of a person’s integrity; it deflates arrogance and can only be mastered through sincere humility. Maurice goes through all possible Yod placements in the chart, detailing the different evolutionary lessons in each case.

6:00-7:00 pm: Dinner

kaypacha7:00-9:30pm: Experiental: Kaypacha: Astrology Rising: Co-creating the Future  This evening’s presentation will initiate the process of us all breaking into groups to begin creating your own expression of the gifts you bear to help heal, expand, and raise the consciousness of humanity.  Throughout the week, you will meet with your fellow attendees to prepare a 20 minute presentation (play, dance, music, educational, future project etc.) for the entire group as the grand finale of this event!  It is the wish of the entire faculty that we all gain experience in working together to create and express our passion (Leo) so as to inspire new forms of thought and action (Aquarius) for the New Paradigm.  We hope you come prepared to blow our minds with your unique outrageousness!

 


Monday, May 8th

kaypacha6:30-7:30 am: Kaypacha, Yoga: Please come a little early to help set up a circle of mats for “The Yoga of the Zodiac”!  We will move and FEEL the 12 archetypes in a 90 minute flow that you won’t forget.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING AN ITEM THAT FITS IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND AS A GIVEAWAY.

julija-site9:00-10:30 am: Julija, Keynote Speech: Astrology and the Science of Cosmic Co-Creation The contemporary understanding of the nature of the universe, not only gives the practice and use of Astrology a green light to flourish, but also the go ahead to consciously co-create a better world. In a culture diluted and fragmented by materialist science with still a heavy aversion to the mystical and the unseen, the new paradigms reshaping our understanding of ourselves in our connected universe bring astrology right back into global consciousness. To understand that the fundamental reality of the material universe is an outcome of conscious processes is about using and knowing and using astrology as a living breathing part of our lives. In this workshop Julija explores how to realign ourselves and the astrology we use to these mind reshaping paradigms, as we awaken to living in a connected universe.

tim-site10:45-12:15 pm: Track 1: Timothy, The Leo Virgo Cusp Leo and Virgo in many respects seems like they are completely different and could never exist together, yet we see them side by side on the zodiac wheel! As the Moon’s North node will be exactly on this cusp at the time of the event, join in investigating the fascinating relationship and strange attraction between these two archetypes and how the dance between the supernaturally grandiose and the intricately focused mundane can shape us into our greatest purpose and role.

maurice-site10:45-12:15 pm: Track 2: Maurice, Identify Past Lives in the Birth Chart Join this fascinating research with Maurice. We may know that the soul evolves through numerous incarnations and that the astrology chart can reflect past life themes, however, have we ever gather evidence of this phenomena? Maurice will discuss confirmed reincarnation cases, and look at the charts of the same soul in the current and preceding life. This is a rare peak into this phenomenon and will provide participants with tangible tools to use in their practice—a most compelling study.

12:30 – 1:30pm: Lunch

1:30 – 3:00pm: Group Projects – Find a cozy spot to gather with your group and further develop the project you began either online before arriving, or Sunday night at Kaypacha’s talk.  You will have your opportunity to share your presentation on Friday so take as much of this time as necessary (1:30-3pm Mon-Thurs) to polish up your performance.  Good Luck and Injoy!

AriSite3:00-4:00 pm: Ari, Tales From Jupiter – In this fun and inspiring talk Ari Moshe will take us on a journey of insight and wisdom as he shares stories and teachings about the profound inner and outer growth that astrological Jupiter can reflect in our lives. Some of the topics Ari Moshe will address: letting go to receive, connecting with the intuition, self-honesty, direct knowledge and nature.

christina-site4:15-5:30pm: Track 1: Christina,The Nodal Axis – Leo/Aquarius As the Nodal axis moves into Leo/Aquarius, a profound shift occurs in our collective destiny. The North Node moving from Virgo to Leo calls for us to reclaim our Lion/Lioness nature and allow ourselves to shine, be seen and take center stage. The challenge for humanity at this time will be to go beyond our humility and perfectionism and find the blessings of our ego nature that is being called forth from us for our evolution. We must shine like the Sun and accept the attention and validation that we deserve. The South Node’s move from Pisces to Aquarius will see Aquarius lessons being refreshed so that the old way of group think and our notions of progress will be shifting. We’ll discuss what this can mean for the world at large as well as for our own personal lives in the coming year and a half.

rick-site4:15-5:30pm: Track 2, Rick: Experiencing the Spiritual Dimensions of Astrology We know there is a relationship between the planetary movement and events here on Earth. But how does human life (and all life) conform to the sacred geometry of the cosmos with such amazing reliability and great precision? How does metaphysical morph into physical? How can we use astrology as a spiritual practice to exercise the illusion of free will instead of leaving our future up to the fickle finger of fate?

6:00 – 7:30pm: Dinner

mona-site7:30-9:00pm: Mona, Ceremony of Rebirth (shamanic ceremony): In this powerful shamanic ceremony I will guide you through the four perinatal Matrix using shamanic and trance music to achieve an amplified state of consciousness. We will re-experience our physical birth, understanding, healing and solving traumas and reconnecting with pure Joy of Living.


Tuesday, May 9th

marci-site6:30-7:30 am: Marci: Yoga – Restore and Activate! Each Astrological sign corresponds to a different part of the body. Examples: Aries: Head, Taurus: Throat, Gemini: Hands, Leo: Heart. Additionally, our astrological sign aligns with elements, Fire, Air, Earth and Water, which relate to our astrological composition/constitution. An example: Aquarius is an Air sign (some think it is water, probably because of the word “Aqua”- though Aquarius is the “water bearer.”) – it rules circulation. Air connects us to our breath (“prana” in Sanskrit). Mother Earth and her planetary energies allow us to ground and center. Example: Tree Posture. Joyful flowing postures (asanas) combined with calming meditations to balance each sign.

maurice-site9:00-10:30 am: Maurice, Keynote Speech: The 12th house Demystified Maurice releases the second edition of his classic book: Neptune, the 12th house and Pisces: The Timelessness of Truth (Fall 2016), providing for the first time perhaps a clear and most profound understanding of this mysterious corner of the zodiac. The 12th house is associated with very a wide range of seemingly unrelated things, from prisons to illusions or the oceans – Join this talk to understand how these associations are actually part of a unified theory of everything.

EugeniaSite10:45-12:15 pm: Track 1: Eugenia, Goddess Rising – The Astrology of the Feminist Movement. Have you ever noticed all the planets, except Venus, have been named after… well, men. Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, and so on. The Romans are the foundation of so much western thought, from our calendar system, to ideas of marriage, and yes, to the naming of planets. In current times, we are seeing the rise of the feminine, after awakening to the historical indiscretions towards women. The Asteroid Goddesses represent this energy in the chart. Without acknowledging or utilizing dwarf planets and asteroids, the chart is almost entirely void of explicitly feminine presence. In this lecture Eugenia will describe a variety of asteroids and dwarf planets which she utilizes in her chart interpretation, with feminine archetypal stories from the Greeks, Egyptians, Christian’s and Inuits. We will also explore the rise of the feminine through the historical charts of the feminist movement and of influential feminists.

julija-site10:45-12:15 pm: Track 2: Julija,The Venus cycle and Venus Phases Most of us know Venus by sign house and aspect, yet knowing Venus also by her phase relationship to the Sun and Earth gives us a greater understanding of the way Venus operates in our astrology. Venus, in her 584 day cycle is either fast or slow, visible or invisible, bright or dim, ascending or descending and all of these combinations signify a particular type of Venus. In this workshop we explore the different Venus phases as part of a synodic cycle and how  these different phases operate in an astrology chart.

12:30 – 3:00pm: Lunch

kaypacha3:00-4:00 pm: Kaypacha: The Evolutionary Stages of Development Reflected Through the Planets:  In this talk, Kaypacha will describe the 4 Evolutionary Stages as brought by Jeffrey Wolf Green.  He will then explain how they manifest through each one of the planets from Mercury, Venus/Mars feminine/masculine expression out to Pluto and beyond (Eris possibly?)!  As the same chart will be interpreted differently dependent upon the evolutionary stage of the soul, this information will assist all those assisting clients as well as those wanting to identify their own stage of development and see how to move forward.

tim-site4:15-5:30pm: Track 1: Timothy, Lucifer: The Light-Bearer In this thought-provoking presentation we will be investigating the various facets of the Lucifer archetype and his correlation to human experience and astrology represented in the infamous “light bearer” asteroid. The potency of our free-will and the fury and shame that can come along with owning the responsibilities of our choices, our self-entitlements and feelings of condemnation are just some of the areas we will be discussing contained within this dense and challenging subject-matter.

sol10:45-12:15 pm: Track 2: Sol, The Circle of Life  A travel through the Solar Year and the Hero’s or Heroine’s journey through life. An efficient look on the Circle as one whole: Every sign connects into each other as the circle of life is a process of unfoldment and not separate bits. Through this lecture you will learn a powerful and effective way of looking at the zodiac.

6:00 – 7:30pm: Dinner

AriSite7:30-9:00pm: Experiential: Ari, Neptune and The Healing Power of Forgiveness. Forgiveness is the act of letting go of our judgments, convictions and beliefs about any expression of reality and choosing instead to let Truth prevail, regardless of our current understanding. Through forgiveness we grant ourselves and one another the profound permission to live fully now, for life to be whole and perfect just as it is. Neptune and Pisces correspond to forgiveness as this archetype also corresponds to the Source within and of all. In this experiential workshop we will open our mind, our hearts and our charts to deeply examine Neptune and the power of forgiveness in our own lives.

Following the workshop, Ari will perform a Sacred Concert: Ari Moshe’s music is nourishment for the soul and reminds us of our true Home within. His songs are a combination of poetry, dream messages, and prayers from the sacred traditions. During the retreat Ari Moshe will share a sacred concert! This concert will be a space of prayer and healing and all are be invited to join in singing. To hear some of Ari Moshe’s music, visit www.arimoshe.com/music


Wednesday, May 10th

kaypacha6:30-7:30 am: Kaypacha – Yoga Kaypacha will share one of his favorite kundalini yoga kriyas with meditation to blast off your day!

 

sol9:00-10:30 am: Sol, Keynote Speech: Ceres and Pluto – The Myth of Sustenance and Destruction – The Entropy of the Garden of Eden. Security is needed in our lives, but too much focus on security can destroy our planet as we harbour resources for survival. What kind of security is it we really are seeking and how can we live happily and safe on a planet that is sailing through an unknown space and where death is inevitable. Ceres, the Great Mother, might give us a little clue into this deep, existential matter.

marci-site10:45-12:15 pm: Track 1: Marci: Your Natal Chart Not only is your Astrological Chart a blueprint for your life, it is a hologram of sacred symbology, of wisdom to be uncovered. Your chart represents your “personology. “ Understanding the symbols and the language of astrology may seem overwhelming. Explore how you can approach interpreting your Natal chart holistically. What are transits and how do transits effect your Natal chart? Learn more about about planetary influences, the house system used to interpret the chart and how it all relates.

AriSite10:45-12:15 pm: Track 2: Ari, Saturn: Deconstructing Who You Thought You Should Be Most of our thoughts and actions in life stem from our conditioned patterning. Often these patterns are not necessarily useful and healthy, but are the habits we have developed over the course of many lives. Saturn corresponds to the total structural reality of our lives: from the structure of our bodies to our thought patterns to the various roles we play in life. To build a conscious life that supports and sustains our well being and deepest spiritual aspirations means first that we become aware of the deeply entrenched conditioning patterns that often dominate most of our waking life experience. In this insightful talk Ari Moshe will offer a thorough exploration of Saturn and the process of deconditioning. We will explore as well the Saturn topics of shame, sexuality, judgment, authority and spiritual awakening.

12:30 – 3:00pm: Lunch

mona-site3:00-4:00 pm: Mona, Planetary Constellation Ceremony Planetary Constellation is a terrific tool which reveals the very energetic dynamics of the moment we want to investigate. It does so by manifesting them through an interactive psycho drama whereby participants are called to represent in a “theatrical fashion” the object of our investigation. People who were familiar with the “Systemic Constellations” from Dr. Bert Hellinger would already know how this works, however, Planetary Constellations can bring to light dynamics of a greater magnitude, planetary and global cycles that affects the planet Earth and the whole humankind. The objective of Planetary Constellations is multiple: on one hand we seek to see, understand and articulate among everyone the celestial dynamic, and on the other hand we aim to harmonize, to balance and integrate the energies whose qualities have been manifested. The subject of investigation for this Planetary Constellation Ceremony will be “EXPLORING THE BIG COLLECTIVE CYCLES OF 2017”. Ceremony attendees will have the honor to literally “INCARNATE” the energy of the planets and make it visible.

christina-site4:15-5:30pm: Track 1: Christina, Scorpio Full Moon Rite of the Womb Shamanic Ritual. The Scorpio Full Moon opens a portal of transformation and deep regeneration. We’ll access this planetary alignment to heal the wombs of humanity in the Rite of the Womb ceremony, a sacred shamanic rite of initiation originating from the women shamans of the Andes and the Amazon. This is the 13th Rite of the Munay-Ki (which means ‘I love you’ in Quechua) and those who receive it are initiated into a lineage of women who freed themselves from suffering. This brief yet powerful initiation, transmitted from women to woman, heals the womb and cancels it out as a place of storing fear and pain to return it to the original intention of a source of creation and giving birth to life. Once a woman receives it, she is now part of the ancient tradition of Womb Keepers and may pass it on to as many women as possible for the healing of all of humanity. This ritual is for women only, men are welcome to witness and provide support.

julija-site4:15-5:30pm: Track 2: Julija,Co-Creation with the Rhythm of the Venus Star The Venus star is a natural rhythm, 5 points are created in our astrology chart every 8 years, yet are also reaffirmed every 9.5 months. The Venus Star pattern and unfolding is related to the fibonacci sequence, an unfolding fractal rose that continues to grow in our astrology chart. To follow this rhythm in our astrology chart over a lifetime, not only helps us tune ourselves to her cosmic and creative rhythm, but adds another potent way to consider evolutionary growth to our astrological tool kit. Where does your Venus star embed itself and how best can you tune into this cosmic rhythm?

6:00 – 7:30pm: Dinner

julija-site7:30-9:00pm: Julija: Learn how to read the night sky – that’s how it all started! With Costa Rica 10° above the equator much more of the Southern sky can be seen than from the higher latitudes of the USA. During the week, weather permitting, Julija will take us on a star tour of the night sky as we sit on the beach, on whichever night, morning looks to have the clearest skies!

During the week Venus is seen as the as a bright morning star at her maximum elongation, with Mercury and (Uranus not visible) below just out of the Sun’s beams. In the evening sky Mars sets just after sunset as Jupiter rises in the East, and at about 10pm Saturn rises with the Galactic Centre, the densest part of the milky way, worth staying up for!  The Moon waxes to Full by midweek in tropical Scorpio seen amongst the claws of the Scorpio and Libra of the 10th of May.

mona-siteFollowing Julija’s presentation, Mona will perform a concert OPEN UP, HEART OF THE  OCEAN! “To your abode of turquoise topaz, I’ll go…” Dive into the enchanted world of mermaids, follow them to the bottom of the sea,  to the bottom of your soul!! SIRENAS, from KARADENIZ, is music for the Sea and for the Soul. A powerful bond with the Seas of Canary Islands and the Soul of the World


Thursday, May 11th

maurice-site6:30-7:30 am: Maurice, Yoga. Maurice has been combining Kundalini Yoga practice with Astrology in his teachings since his own experience with the yoga directly stimulated higher spiritual realization. The practice is a safe and organic way to access the timeless and simultaneously strengthen our immune system. His style is entrancing and poetic.

patricia-site9:00-10:30 am: Patricia, Keynote Speech: Either you run your Complexes….or your Complexes run you! “The past is not dead, in fact…it isn’t even past”… Faulkner

Complexes are complex! Especially when you are in the grip of one and don’t know what you are dealing with. Patricia will help you understand the structure and dynamics of psycho/spiritual complexes and in particular how unhealed ones (karmic and otherwise) can run our lives. She will also share case studies of past life complexes (revealed through regression therapy) to illustrate the dynamics of karma and past life traumas and how they affect our current day psyche and evolutionary progress.

10:45-12:15 pm: Past Life Journey with Patricia After Patricia’s keynote speech, she will lead the group through a past life journey to offer healing to one of your own Karmic Complexes!

12:30 – 1:30pm: Lunch

1:30 – 3:00pm: Group Projects – Find a cozy spot to gather with your group and further develop the project you began either online before arriving, or Sunday night at Kaypacha’s talk.  You will have your opportunity to share your presentation on Friday so take as much of this time as necessary (1:30-3pm Mon-Thurs) to polish up your performance.  Good Luck and Injoy!

kaypacha3:00-4:00 pm: Kaypacha: The Age of Aquarius: A Look Ahead  In this talk, Kaypacha will share his view of the future potentials and pitfalls that lie on the bumpy road ahead for us to initiate the New Paradigm.  We have all incarnated, quite purposefully, to help bring in, and act as models for the future generations.  The upcoming planetary aspects can assist us in tuning into the “Divine Plan” for the evolution of our species and help guide both our personal and collective growth.

tim-site4:15-5:30pm: Track 1: Timothy, Chiron: Healing Through Bridging and Weaving The spiritual journey contrary to popular belief is not necessarily a simple one-way ticket forward, there and done. Chiron as a principal of healing reveals a process far more wholesome, involving a looping or a coming full-circle. As we look into our greatest woundedness we will uncover our capability to empathize and truly understand the suffering of others. We will discuss how Chiron in the chart can reveal both what hinders us and what gives us a unique capability to help others along their healing journey. The curse, and the blessing in disguise.

mona-site4:15-5:30pm: Track 2: Mona, The Influence of the Planetary Archetypes During Pregnancy and Birth Human birth is potentially the most traumatic event we can experience in this lifetime as well as dr. Grof´s serious and deep investigation work in amplified states of consciousness found out. Human birth can be divided in four different states or episodes and each one is related and connected to a specific Planetary Archetype. We start our journey with Neptune, symbolizing pre-natal and intrauterine state, followed by Saturn, Pluto and Uranus and their specific states of consciousness . In this presentation I will guide you through all these states in order to achieve clarity and a higher perspective about our first and most important journey dwelling into Life.

6:00 – 7:30pm: Dinner

rick-site7:30-9:00pm: Experiential: Rick, An Evening of Astrodrama: Acting out Kaypacha’s Natal Chart Astrology is often considered an intellectual study and is often practiced in the throat chakra and up. Experiential astrology techniques are used to deepen the personal experience rather than leaving it in the realms of analysis. One of the most inspiring experiential astrology techniques is astrodrama, where a natal chart comes to life as people take on the role of various planets in someone’s chart and have real-time interactions. We will set up a large chart on the floor and I will choose people to play each of the planets in Kaypacha’s chart. As facilitator, I will bring out some of the main energetic dramas by having Kaypacha in the middle of his chart as it comes to life around him. This is not only fun for all—the actors, the audience, and Kaypacha—but also is a magical way to see astrology embodied. You’ll never look at a chart in the same old way once you’ve seen it dramatized in real time.
