Uniting Heaven and Earth
Astrology and the Healing Arts
November 17-24, 2017
This November, Saturn will come into it's 3rd and final square for 2017 with Chiron, the Wounded Healer. The first square was December of 2016, the second April of 2017, and this third and final pass will resolve and complete the healing "crises and processes" that have been going on throughout the year. It is/has been an intense testing period of our boundaries, will force, focus, and power to remain firmly in our core to truly manifest our full potential. This retreat is designed to resolve, soothe, and integrate all 7 chakras to regain equilibrium, calm, and an open heart after a year of challenge.
Kaypacha has been working these past years to relate the Spirit, Mind, Body complex to the astrological birthchart, knowing that specific and powerful kundalini yoga kriyas could be individually designed based upon the horoscope. From years of practicing and teaching kundalini yoga, he feels this powerful path of awakening is vital now for each of us to thrive and fully manifest the soul intentions we have for incarnating.
Chiron transiting Pisces indicates a time to reflect within, take time out, and seriously pursue the deeper truths that lie along the spiritual path. Sometimes it will "take us out" of our routines and daily superficial life in order to do so. From the outside this can "look" like physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual crisis brought on by a series of events, memories, relationship challenges, or even economic anxiety.
This week is dedicated to relaxing, loving, stretching, sun bathing, swimming, and sharing astrological findings with each other to restore, build and further fortify our core. We will begin from where you are and what you have been dealing with, and explore the connection between it and your Soul/Spirit intention as revealed in the chart. We will then experience a range of breathing exercises, affirmations, emotional release techniques, and yoga that will blow your mind and blast you off!
Blending over 40 years of astrological study with kundalini yoga, shamanism, family constellations, spatial dynamics, music, and movement, Kaypacha will share the connections between each chakra, physical organ/system, emotion, and the planet/sign combinations of your natal birthchart. Uniting the work of Yogi Bhajan, Jeffrey Wolf Green, Louise Hay, Eileen Nauman, Carolyn Myss, and John Ruskan among others, with his own personal experience counseling, writing, and teaching astrology and yoga, this retreat will be a culmination of his work in progress “An Astrological Chakra Workbook.” You will come away from this event a new person with practical tools to go all the way (wherever you freely choose). Each day will include kundalini yoga, pranayama, and chanting to help you get “IT” on a cellular level. We hope you join us.

Day One: Arrive, settle in, have dinner together, and an Opening Talk by Kaypacha “What the $%&* Is Goin' On?” This is a 2 hour look at the past, present, and future through the lens of astrology and will serve as an introduction to the principles, energy, and evolutionary design of our times. It will help us orient ourselves and prepare for the inner work we came for.
Day Two: “Becoming familiar with your astrological chart.” We will discuss, tone, move, and feel the 12 basic archetypes of the zodiac, the planets, and the houses of the birthchart.
Day Three: “Chakra Assessment” You will take Kaypacha’s Chakra Assessment evaluation (multiple choice, takes minutes, relax) and share your story. We will look at each individual’s chart, and relate their chart to their story, to their chakra needs, explaining along the way the astrological correlations to the chakras, their organs, dis-eases, and emotions.
Day Four – Seven: “Examining, working, and healing” These FOUR days will be spent working with each of the chakras, as needed according to the results of Day Three. Basically, Kaypacha will work with the individuals present, focusing on which chakras, emotions, challenges, and desires are needed/wanted by the group. He works with intuitive guidance to meet each person where they are, offering tools to help them take the next step. Everyone will learn about astrology, the chakra system, and their relation to the thoughts, emotions, and physical conditions through witnessing, holding, chanting and moving with each other.
Whether you are suffering from any ailment in any “body” or work with the healing arts and wish to incorporate an interdisciplinary approach, this retreat will expand your work (personal or professional). In addition, whenever we gather together as a group and form a container for transformation, we allow Spirit to enter that container and evoke change, healing, and growth. You may not even know what healing you need until you are in the container! The intention of seeking to unite ourselves more fully with the ultimate healing tool: LOVE, will be guiding all of our activities.
Day Eight: Some yoga, breakfast, and a farewell circle.
Free Gift! In order to gain the most benefit from this program and not hold back the group, you will need at least a basic understanding of the signs and planets and aspects of your birthchart.
