with Heather Roan Robbins and Saleem Adam Wolter
Sunday, March 18th 11:15 am to 4:45 pm
at Holistic Gateway
Be a planet, act out a chart, and watch astrology breathe and come alive. We’ll start with a walking meditation based on the Sufi walks of the planets and embody each to warm up. Then, working on a zodiac on the floor, participants become Sun, Moon or planet (or stay as observer if they prefer) we’ll pick a handful of charts to work on, let the planets channel through us and interview each character to find out what it feels like to square Saturn, trine Pluto, or dangle out there lonely and un-aspected. Get a visceral feel for the interaction of aspects. Come with a question! The chart holder can ask questions of their planets and brainstorm with them to solve dilemmas. We can deepen our understanding of the charts dynamics whatever our level of astrological understanding.
*** Note: Bring a lunch! This workshop includes a lunch break. Holistic Gateway has a kitchen, including a fridge for storing your lunch, and a stove for heating it up.
*** Note: Acting out a chart is on a volunteer basis. All are welcome to participate and learn.
Cost: $65/NCGR members or $80/non-members

Come and weave a circle of sacred presence with experienced seekers and curious newbies alike.
We honor the spiritual traditions of the world by singing sacred songs and dancing simple steps in a circle of universal prayer.
No former experience is necessary. You'll learn the words, songs and steps we'll be using in a comfortable setting. There are no performers and no audience members. This is a circle of healing presence.
Words can't do justice to the beauty that unfolds here. Come and find out more for yourself.
All are welcome. Bring a snack to share if you like.
I'm a certified dance leader who's been participating in the Dances since 2010, and have been on a program of intensive spiritual and musical study with Sufi mentors since April 2014.
Please feel free to call or email with any questions
