Switzerland Class

Jyotish in Switzerland

Jyotish in Switzerland 2017

September 23-29, 2017

Medical Astrology / Remedial Astrology

Join us in Saint-Maurice, Switzerland for this five day Swiss-Alps Jyotish intensive.  The class will focus on medical astrology.   Jim will show you how to judge the clients constitutional strength, as well as how to tell what  areas of  the body will produce problems.  He will also show you how to predict the time when health problems occur, as  well as  the  time of recovery.  In the process you will become more grounded in the fundamentals of chart analysis, as well as the use of Dasha and transit techniques. 

One of the interesting features of this class will be a module on Remedial Measures.  Each day, Jim will devote some  time to this subject, showing you how to prescribe gemstones, mantras and  other remedies.

As with all of Jim's classes, the orientation of this class is towards doing actual readings.   Jim's philosophy of teaching is that you learn astrology by doing astrology, not by talking about astrology.  The Swiss Alps will provide an excellent environment for a total immersion experience in this ancient art.
