Greg Bogart: Better than Prozac: Astrology and Mental Health

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM, Building C, Room C210

All of us adapt astrology to our varied fields and occupations. In the 1980s and 1990s when I was a yoga teacher I approached astrology as a form of yoga. (I wrote about that in Astrology and Spiritual Awakening). But these days I work more as a psychotherapist, so I use astrology to help people in states of emotional, psychological, and relational distress. In this presentation I’ll describe some examples of how I use astrology as part of a holistic approach to the treatment of depression and anxiety, anger management, substance abuse, trauma, and complicated bereavement.

Lynn Bell: IAD SF 2013 Post Conference Workshop
FAMILY PATTERNS OF LIGHT AND SHADOW

10:30 AM - 5:30 PM, Building C, Room C260, with Break for Lunch

We come into this world through a tribe, and the light is often divided unevenly between family members. Some of us carry the dreams of our families, while others hold the unconscious or rejected values of the tribe, and may be treated as if they are "good for nothing". Even when far away, there is an underlying connection to the tribe, one that reveals itself in the shape of events, in mysterious blockages and breaks. Each of us responds to the family patterning in a unique way. Bring your chart and those of other family members and begin to unravel your archetypal family patterns.

John Wiser: Astrology of Forgetting, Astrology of Learning

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM, Building C, Room C210

This will be a look into the astrology of learning. What do we learn? How do we learn it? When do we learn it? Solar and lunar returns show us what is learned and when we learn it. To learn, we must forget most of what comes at us. Angles are our filters. Natal angles point us to how we learn and where knowledge is stored. This presentation will include case studies.
