Revealing the Shadow in Your Chart
a workshop with Kaypacha and Timothy Halloran
(This Workshop is Sold Out)
September 1-4, 2017
Bend of Ivy Lodge, Asheville, NC
We all have wounds and fears from past lives, childhood, and past relationships - parts of ourselves that we hide as we put forth our best face to others and society. These self-judgments that make us feel guilty and ashamed of ourselves, we bury down in our subconscious. These shadow aspects of ourselves end up getting projected onto others, particularly our intimate partners.
In astrology, these shadow elements are symbolized by Saturn, Pluto, Lilith, and Lucifer, as well as other houses and aspects within the chart. This workshop will explore the mythology, meaning, and soul intention of these elements and their aspects. We will become more conscious of, and able to forgive, accept, and integrate these vital, life forces that have been rejected and suppressed.
Through this exploration, healing and self-acceptance can occur, our projections are lessened, and our relationships improved. As soon as we bring these unexpressed, "dark" aspects of ourselves into the light of consciousness, we find they are a source of great power, energy, and rejuvenation. The journey into the recesses of our soul yields profound revelation and inspiration, providing deeper meaning and purpose to our lives. We hope you will join us on this expedition!
7-9pm - The Astrology of 2017 and Beyond: This introductory talk will set the foundation for the weekend 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. We are all currently experiencing the intense shift of consciousness in many ways that astrology can help us to understand and navigate more smoothly.
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 and Tim will investigate the mythology and diverse cultural history of the infamous Lucifer (asteroid #1930) and Lilith archetypes and their correlation through the fixed zodiac signs. We will explore Lucifer’s different characterizations and facets, as well as their correlation to the human experience; The power of free-will, the fury or shame that can come with owning and taking responsibility for our choices, and where in our psyche we may feel either self-entitled or condemned. We will also see where in our psyche the propensity for either a sense of self-entitlement or feelings of condemnation occur. Understanding Lucifer will help us to: 1) Unravel, relieve and undress socially conditioned paranoia and superstition 2) Understand the rich and complex multifaceted archetype in its full string of qualities as an aspect of nature 3) Grasp how he functions through the signs and houses the birth chart.
Both the astronomy and mythology of Lilith will be presented to gain a deeper perspective on how she works as an agent of conscious evolution. She symbolizes latent feminine kundalini energy that can create crisis when working unconsciously or tremendous power when fully integrated. By taking Lucifer and Lilith through the 12 signs and houses, Kaypacha and Tim will discuss how to best work with these shadow/hidden aspects of ourselves.

9-5 pm (lunch 1-2:30pm): This day will be spent exploring these archetypes using our charts, lives, and relationships to see how the shadow is showing up for each of us. You will have an opportunity to open, share, and delve deeper into your life situation to receive insights and answers to your deepest questions. We will have created a safe, loving container where true healing can occur. Personal issues and questions will be taken so a thorough understanding and healing can be experienced.
7pm: Kundalini Gunpati meditataion
7am: kundalini yoga
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.
