The Alchemy of Transformation: The Taurus/Scorpio Axis
An astrological workshop with Kaypacha
May 3-7, 2018
Aloha am See, Berlin, Germany
Humanity is now in the process of redefining itself spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and sexually. As established patriarchal socio/cultural/religious conditioning gives way to a new paradigm of understanding the masculine and feminine, we are poised between stale, limiting beliefs, and fearful, unknown potentials that lie deep within us. This is the realm of the underworld, in astrology associated with the archetype of Scorpio, Pluto, and the 8th house. It is the arena in which we open, surrender, dare, and allow ourselves to be transformed and evolved through osmosing power, in its many forms, from outside forces and relationships we cannot control.
This alchemical transformation through deep intimacy as expressed through the archetype of Scorpio is balanced, illumined, and fulfilled through its opposite polarity: Taurus, Venus, and the 2nd house. The Taurus archetype is our own sensual body and its capacities, talents, and power to be ultimately self-sufficient. The Hermit vs. the Lover, the Isolator vs. the Fuser, we find ourselves pulled by these dual, co-existing desires. One that seeks survival, gratification and fulfillment within and through self-development, and the other that seeks to evolve, transmute, and expand its power through learning, growing, and intimately merging with “the other.”
Your astrological birthchart is a virtual blueprint of your own, unique, body/soul/spirit, including your past life soul history and current life soul intention. This workshop will use your horoscope to examine your most personal resources (Venus, Taurus, 2nd House), and what you most deeply desire to gain in and through intimate relationship. We will use astrology, kundalini yoga, breathwork, movement, and music to help you access, feel, accept, and empower yourself on the deepest levels.
Registration is currently closed!
7-9pm - The Astrology of Transformation: This introductory talk will set the foundation for the course by describing the current astrological patterns. By looking at the transits, we are looking at the collective unconscious out of which all our dreams, intentions, and shadows emerge. Kaypacha will focus particularly on the Sun in Taurus opposite Jupiter in Scorpio that is happening at the time of this workshop. Jupiter in Scorpio for most of 2018 reflects the deep transformation occurring through the forces of life, death, sex, power and money throughout the year.
9-5 pm (lunch 1-2:30pm): Activities will include breathwork, yoga, and an exploration into the 12 archetypes of the zodiac. We will review the planets, signs, and houses including “The Yoga of the Zodiac,” an inner experience of the 12 basic archetypes through music and movement.
After lunch, Kaypacha will explain in detail the Taurus/Scorpio axis and their counterparts, Venus/Pluto and the 2nd/8th houses. He will take these two signs and planets around the circle of houses to show how, when, where and from whom you seek to isolate and build your inner resources, and how, when, where, and with whom you seek to fuse, become one, merge, unite, and alchemically transform yourself through intimacy. Your chart is both a means of self-discovery and of understanding the unconscious forces active in your most intimate relationships. Why or why not you are getting what you desire, how to work with your current situation to evolve to the next phase, and when the cycles are due to change.
6:00pm: Dinner and free time
7:30: Meeting the dark mother: A ritual entering into the womb of the dark mother to release unresolved anger, shame, grief, guilt.
Saturday - Sunday
7am: kundalini yoga
9-5 pm (lunch 1-2:30pm): When we suppress our natural instincts and desires out of guilt or shame, they are projected as shadow on our most intimate partners and experienced inwardly as anger and rage. In addition to further exploring our charts, we will learn techniques for emotional release and work with both the circle of consent and our personal dreams, fantasies, and fears. We will continue building a safe and secure container including small group work. Ultimately, everyone will have the opportunity to release what has been holding them back through music, sound and movement as well as embrace/express their soul’s relationship intention.
Saturday 7pm: Connecting to the inner light: Guest Sumeja Hiltmann, a Syrian singer and medicine woman will chant ancient Sufi chants for releasing dark energies
Sunday 7:pm: Celebrating life and abundance on all levels: Rita Anton accompanied by drummers.
9-12pm: We will have a closing circle of sharing our experiences of and with each other, and further integrate the material presented. In this way, we will each return to our lives and relationships whole, excited, and empowered to experience a richer and fuller love of ourselves and others.
12pm: – lunch and departure
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. For this reason, your registration includes Kaypacha’s webinar Astrology 101 webinar series free of charge ($120 value) so you can learn these basics beforehand! In it, he goes through the meaning of the signs, planets, houses, and aspects (16 hours total).
