Planetary Archetypes Course
September 27 - October 24
In this 20-hour online course, participants receive an introduction to the energies and significations of the nine planetary archetypes as taught through Jyotish, Vedic Astrology, also known as the Science of Light. Participants learn about the classical nava grahas, or nine planets, through recorded lectures, meditation, visualization, yantra and mantra practice. This course also includes journal prompts and live Q&A sessions to deepen one’s understanding of the content covered.
Each week of this course two planets will be covered. The videos include a description of each planet in myth and also the technical significations of the planet. In the techniques portion of the program there are select dharanas, guided visualizations, yantra and mantra practices for each planet.
By taking this course students are able to create transformative relationships to the energies of the planets as they correspond to the days of the week as well as gaining an understanding of the planetary counsel, mantras, yantras, colors, gems and the main significations for each planet. This foundational program aids and supports yoga teachers/practitioners, Ayurvedic professionals, healers and other interested individuals both professionally in teaching/client relationships and also in their own personal lives. Through this Planetary Archetypes Course one is better prepared for Vedic Astrological readings, timing of events and aligning oneself with the celestial energies. It is to be noted that this is not an astrology certification course, but rather an introduction for those who are seeking a deeper understanding of how the grahas, or planetary energies, “grasp,” or influence, the individual psyche and collective consciousness.
Lastly, in addition to the course itself, participants have the opportunity to have a 90-min private Vedic Astrology reading with Krishna. During the session there will be an opportunity to ask more personalized questions about the planets as they pertain to one’s own birth chart and how they are affecting one’s life and psyche.
