Transmuting Our Wounds Into Medicine

The Astrology of Chiron and the Hero’s Journey

OVERVIEW

An Astrological Journey to Edipsos, Greece, Home of Chiron with Kaypacha & Rene

Chiron, a planetoid discovered in 1977, has been named after the famed centaur who Homer called the “wisest and most just of all the centaurs.” As his elliptical orbit swings inside that of Saturn’s 3D boundaries and out beyond Uranus’ free and open space, he has been called the “rainbow bridge.” As with all the planets, his interpretation in the horoscope is derived from both observation and mythology.

Come join us in Edipsos, Greece, Chiron’s home, where Gods, humans, and Centaurs have soaked in its sacred thermal healing springs for many millennia.

Come join us in Edipsos, Greece, Chiron’s home, where Gods, humans, and Centaurs have soaked in its sacred thermal healing springs for many millennia.

Chiron will be our guide as we explore his story, gifts, and meaning in your natal astrological chart.

Chiron the centaur was a wise teacher who gave up his immortality to escape the pain of a wound accidentally inflicted upon him by Hercules, his own student. After descending into the underworld, he rose again, as another expression of a savior who dies and resurrects. Hence, he is now seen as the “wounded healer,” and his placement in your horoscope reflects where your soul has experienced wounding that is both painful and a pathway to liberation.

THE JOURNEY

The great astrologer and psychologist Carl Jung identified the zodiac as twelve universal archetypes residing within our collective unconscious: Rule, Sage, Innocent, Explorer, Rebel, Hero, Wizard, Jester, Everyman, Lover, Caregiver, and Creator-Artist. These twelve primary archetypes represent the range of fundamental human motivations. In your chart, Chiron reflects which one has been wounded and how it affects your life.

In this workshop, you will learn how to work with this aspect of your soul to transform it from a painful inner experience to your special gift for humankind. Your wound can become your medicine.

You will experience your own personal healing through astrological study, yoga, and breathwork, as well as the therapeutic benefits of the thermal waters, beaches, and nature of this uniquely beautiful island.


? The more astrology you already know, the better! If you are new to astrology, you’ll be glad to know that your registration includes Kaypacha’s “Astrology 101” webinar series free of charge ($120 value) to learn the basics! Kaypacha goes through the meaning of the signs, planets, houses, and aspects (16 hours total).

We will spend the first day reviewing these, but certainly, a day can only serve as a review, not an entire education. Therefore, you’ll need to listen to Astrology 101 before the course!

Come gather with like-minded souls who share the same intention to heal and serve. We look forward to seeing you there!

EVENT DETAILS

Day 1 – Wednesday, May 10
ARRIVAL & WELCOME

5 pm: Kaypacha will open the retreat with the astrological presentation “What the @#$% Is Going On?” Kaypacha will explain the current and future energetic patterns illuminated by the astrology of our times with an emphasis on Chiron in Aries. The planetary configurations reflect (as in are synchronistic with) the dynamics we are dealing with in both the collective unconscious level and our personal lives. If you are familiar with his weekly astrological forecast on YouTube titled “The Pele Report,” you might consider this a two-hour extended version of that thirty-minute weekly report.

7 pm: We will enjoy a delicious dinner by the sea.


Day 2 – Thursday, May 11
UNDERSTANDING OUR HOROSCOPE

10 am – 1 pm
After breakfast, we will begin our day with an opening circle, introductions, and the “Astrology of the Zodiac,” a yogic journey through the signs. Kundalini yoga practice just before lunch.

1 pm:  Lunch and time to enjoy the beach or pool.

3 pm:
We will continue with the second half of the day’s workshop, reviewing the signs, planets, and houses with an emphasis on Pluto, the Moon’s nodes, and Chiron.
Pluto rules the root chakra, the kundalini life force, and his placement in the horoscope, along with the Moon’s nodes, reveals our soul history and intentions for this life.

6 pm: Dinner

7 pm: Mythology with Rene


Day 3 – Friday, May 12
CHIRON & THE HERO/HEROINE’S JOURNEY

8 am: Kundalini yoga before breakfast.

10 am – 1 pm:
After breakfast, Kaypacha will offer an in-depth analysis of Chiron, the wounded healer, and what he signifies in your natal chart.
We all have our own personal “Achilles heel” We all share in Chiron-ic pain, suffer various aches, and have been mistreated, disempowered, and victimized by something we do not always understand. These challenges often tempt us into adopting a victim consciousness. But through the fighting spirit of Chiron, now transiting Aries, we can find inspiration and ask, “What is the highest outcome for this?” This is the hero/heroine’s journey that transmutes our pain into our medicine.

1 pm: Lunch and time to enjoy the beach or pool.

3 pm:
Kaypacha will explore the hero/heroine’s journey described by the sign, house, and aspects of everyone’s natal Chiron. Together we will gain a deeper insight into the nature and working of Chiron through each other’s personal experiences.

6 pm: Dinner

7 pm: Mythology with Rene


Day 4 – Saturday, May 13
FULL-DAY BOAT EXCURSION

8 am: We will pack a lunch and board our private boat bound for Lichadonisia, the “Seychelles of Greece,” a cluster of exotic islands scattered with ancient Greek, Roman, and Byzantine ruins close to the coast. We will cruise through these exotic islets passing over shipwrecks and possibly seeing monk seals!

Delicious lunch on the beach, and return to the hotel around 4 pm.

Lichadonisia formed after volcanic activity while a large part of the islands sank from an earthquake in 426 B.C. Their name comes from Lichas, the servant of Hercules. According to mythology, Lichas handed Hercules the tunic of Deianeira, which was poisoned by the blood of the Hydra (the same that poisoned Chiron). As a result, Hercules’s skin began to burn, and he held Lichas responsible and hurled him to the sea. Legend says the Lichades islands were formed from his body! The island has much history, from ancient Greek battles to WWII battles. A sanctuary of ancient pagans as well as Byzantine monks and modern recluses.
