Week One: Telling Stories, Making Soul
Communication scholar Walter Fischer called humanity "homo narrans"; we are storytelling animals. Ever since we began to speak, we have used stories to convey information with emotion, depth and meaning. We'll explore the power of stories through history and across cultures, as well as how modern research has given us clues for how you can tap in to this potent aspect of human nature.

Make your stories compelling by learning a few simple techniques employed by professional journalists, storytellers and speakers. You'll learn how to structure your narrative, how word choice affects your story's pace, and other practical tips for constructing gripping tales.

Week Three: Astrologer as Storyteller

Storytelling is a potent therapeutic tool that complements astrology's rich symbolic and soulful language. We'll examine narrative therapy techniques and how these may apply to an astrology client consultation. You'll also learn how you can encourage clients to create their own meaningful stories from astrological elements.

Week Four: Writing for (Astro) Story
The best examples of astrological writing – from horoscopes and blogs, to articles and books – is based on good storytelling. Whether your work is 75 words or 75,000, you can learn to use elements of storytelling to enliven your writing, leaving your audience wanting more.

Week Five: "A funny thing happened on the way to Neptune…" Astrology and Public Speaking
Astrology lectures aren't just about the dry transmission of information. Adding life with stories allows you to connect with your audience on a deeper level. In this session we'll review strategies you can use to make your presentations more memorable, and fun, for all in attendance.

Are obstacles bad? In astrology we often talk about how a square blocks or impedes a planet from fully expressing itself, and that this obstacle leads to challenge and frustration for the native. But is this always true?

register DATE: Saturday, February 13, 2016 
TIME: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM PST (1:00-3:00 PM EST)

Dr. Laura Tadd explored this question in her article Reframing Squares in the June/July issue of The Mountain Astrologer. In the article she observed that astrologers often fail to explore the huge gift that can be found in the square's blockade of energy. A square's impact doesn't just block the positive, healthy, beneficial archetypal qualities of a planetary signature. The shadowy, negative, and toxic aspects are also blocked and impeded from manifesting with ease. The energy a square brings in does not, cannot, cherry-pick what it obstructs: blocking only the positive and letting the negative run wild and free. It impacts all qualities related to this signature.

Tadd Laura 12 15In this workshop Laura will explore this idea in further depth. She will use chart examples to understand the complexity of this aspect. She will show how labeling a square as one of the “hard” aspects can blind us to the gifts it can provide. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to understand how to combine the more common interpretation of a given square combined with the potential gifts within the blocked energy. Using this information, they can help themselves and their clients to see how squares can be in one’s best interest.

Over the centuries, other magical threads -- including astrology -- have been woven into the "Tree of Life," making it one of the central keys for understanding the Western Esoteric Tradition.

In this 3-hour workshop, you'll receive an introductory overview of the Qabala symbolic system. We'll explore how the Tree of Life links to cosmic correspondencs such as planets, signs and elements, as well as how Qabala can be used as a remedial tool with astrology.
