Mark Jones 

Astrology and the Evolution of Psychic Being

In this workshop Mark will explore the fusion of psychology, spirituality and astrology that occurred in the work of Dane Rudhyar and show how his work can become a foundation for an approach to astrology that places it in service of the whole person. The workshop will reflect on the part of the soul that seeks to evolve and grow through the experience of being a person; the psychic being. How this evolutionary presence within us is reflected through an expanded conception of the natal chart. The workshop will include a radical re-imaging of the outer planets and their transformational power and meaning in their interaction with the inner planets and nodes of the Moon. The workshop will be illustrated with in-depth case studies of transformation from Mark’s extensive client work.

Swallowed by Saturn

We have all been caught by our conditioning, swallowed by Saturn, Stepping over those mental boundaries for the first time gives a pure taste of freedom. Those first boundaries may be familial. Saturn, however, is still there, with a different mask; Saturn stays where fear remains, and as we get older our personal history can distort our ability to see the future in new ways. Over and over again. With each activation of the Saturn cycle we are asked to face down fear. How do we work with these Saturn passages? Bring charts to examine.

The Membrane of Personality: Working Creatively with Self-States of Day, Night, and Twilight

This workshop will combine fresh imaginings of myth and story, sect, aspect theory, and contemporary psychology, to engage Day and Night self-states found in every chart.   We will explore both the astrology and psychology of primal, emotional, and borderland Night states of being, as well as generative, cohering, and narcissistic Day states.  We will also explore the between-state of Twilight, which healers can access to mediate difficulties within and between self-states (such as so-called personality and dissociative disorders), and use the Day/Night lens to contemplate some psychotherapeutic journeys, discovering the many ways that Psyche may dream and re-dream personality itself.
