The Astrological Moon: Adventures with the divine feminine with Matthew Wyman, PhD
Thursday, March 30, 2017 - 11:00AM-3:00PM
The first astrology humanity had was lunar, and all cultures have worshipped a moon goddess. We now live in a solar world, where these roots are ignored and our natural cycles, intuitions, emotions and creativity are neglected. Hands-on and interactive, no previous astrological knowledge necessary, this workshop explores your own astrological Moon through moon phases and life cycles, lunar myths, moon signs and their emotional habits, and your pre-birth lunation and finding your life's purpose.
Dr. Wyman is an experienced educator, astrologer, and essence practitioner from Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom. He works at Keele University, where he has received numerous awards for his teaching activities. He has been a practicing astrologer since 2010, working with clients across Europe and the Americas and running several workshops and training programmes.

Thursday, March 30, 2017 - 4:00PM-8:00PM
Experience transformation while exploring dream images with your own voice.

Replace interpretations with different ways of resonating with your dreams, making palpable contact with invisible aspects of your images beyond the perceptive abilities of your ordinary state of consciousness. Discover the vocal sounds implicit to your dream images; it is an unexpectedly fresh and deeply transformative experience.
