Introduction to Astrology Workshop

Introduction to Astrology Workshop with Janet Robinson

Saturday 18th April 2015 – 10am to 4pm

  • What is Astrology?
  • Basic Astrology
  • How a birth chart is constructed
  • Who am I? How to interpret your chart

Everyone who attends will receive their own personal birth chart.

Astrology consists of several systems of divination based on the premise that there is a relationship between astronomical phenomena and events in the human world. Many cultures have attached importance to astronomical events, and the Indians, Chinese, and Mayans developed elaborate systems for predicting terrestrial events from celestial observations. In the West, astrology most often consists of a system of horoscopes purporting to explain aspects of a person’s personality and predict future events in their life based on the positions of the sun, moon, and other celestial objects at the time of their birth.

Throughout most of its history, astrology was considered a scholarly tradition. It was accepted in political and academic contexts, and was connected with other studies, such as astronomy, alchemy, meteorology, and medicine.

Astrology has been dated to at least the 2nd millennium BCE, with roots in calendrical systems used to predict seasonal shifts and to interpret celestial cycles as signs of divine communications. A form of astrology was practised in the first dynasty of Mesopotamia (1950–1651 BCE). Chinese astrology was elaborated in the Zhou dynasty (1046–256 BCE). Hellenistic astrology after 332 BCE mixed Babylonian astrology with Egyptian Decanic astrology in Alexandria, creating horoscopic astrology. Alexander the Great’s conquest of Asia allowed astrology to spread to Ancient Greece and Rome. In Rome, astrology was associated with “Chaldean wisdom”. After the conquest of Alexandria in the 7th century, astrology was taken up by Islamic scholars, and Hellenistic texts were translated into Arabic and Persian. In the 12th century, Arabic texts were imported to Europe and translated into Latin, helping to initiate the European Renaissance.

Foundation in Light – Practical Spirituality 2014/2015

Foundation in Light


The Foundation in Light is a unique course in the spiritual understanding and working knowledge necessary to nurture and develop a life in healing – whether for yourself and those around you, or to take a healing path into a career as a therapist.  This course provides all the building blocks for a Foundation to reach into, and towards, all your potentials. Many students have found the course to be truly life changing

The course is over 12 months and there will be a Certificate of Completion which assists entry on all The Light of Hope CIC College of Light Diploma courses, although it is not necessarily a pre-requisite to those courses.  The ‘Foundation’ course is experiential and aims to develop good spiritual ‘housekeeping’ of both a personal and environmental nature, and will be of interest to all, whether or not a career in healing is the ultimate goal.

The ‘Foundation’ course encompasses all aspects of personal energy, meditation and self-healing techniques. It brings an appreciation and understanding of holistic therapies – why and how they work. Students will experience healing – both giving and receiving.  Dimensions beyond the physical will be covered – including guides, angels, masters; life beyond the physical and connections to those who have passed to the light.

An understanding of the many levels of life beyond our physical and planetary nature is key to our role on the earth at this time and the course aims to give the individual a very real perspective to their own place in the divine plan.

The course includes attendance at ‘Steps’ teachings which are held monthly (in the evening) at  Sale on the last Monday of each month (unless a bank holiday when brought forward a week)

Course Structure

  • Each student will be allocated a personal mentor to guide and support their development
  • Students, as part of their personal development, will be required to attend a minimum of two evening group meditations per month. They may attend as many meditations as they wish.
  • There will be a student card pass ‘Ticket to Light’ which will access all available events to ‘Foundation’ students.
  • The ‘Foundation in Light’ course is non-denominational and open to all irrespective of religious, social or academic background.
  • Students who do not register for the total ‘Foundation’ course may attend each study day or event separately and individually, and pay accordingly.

COURSE FEES: 10% deposit of £52.80 and 12 monthly payments of £39.60 by standing order (total payable £528.00). OR

Full payment in advance £448.80. (15% discount)

Concessions: 10% discount for full-time Students, Senior Citizens and those receiving Income Support.

We have just completed some taster sessions of  Meditation at Trafford Housing Trust and hope that we may do more in the future. Many companies are becoming aware of the benefits to their staff and thus their productivity and attendance records thorugh the use of simple relaxation, meditation and mindfulness techniques. We welcome the opportunity to connect with other local employers to discuss benefits and training in this area.



Strength in Passing begins 26th July 2014 with the first of 4 Workshops dealing with issues of Life and Death, illness and bereavement. We will be addressing these matters from an Holistic perspective in a healing and supportive environment.

We have recently established a partnership with Trafford Carers for whom we are providing  regular meditation groups once a month on the 2nd Thurday mornings at 11am.

We have taken on a couple of new volunteers who are helping out on reception for a few hours each week. We really appreciate any help from volunteers and would welcome contact from anyone who feels drawn to our work and can spare a few hours each week.

We will be having a CRYSTAL MEDITATION on the Solstice – Saturday, 21st June at 6.00pm.
