Dear Friends,

            Here are the courses coming up in January, in addition to the continuing courses on Soul Tending (Jan. 7th) and Harpies (Jan. 2nd). All are welcome to join these courses, but, as with the courses listed below, let me know if you plan to do so, so I am sure to have a sufficient number of hand-outs.

                                                            Happy New Year!


Astrology II, Saturdays, 1/4,11,18,25th; 2-4PM (snow day, 2/1, 2PM); 55 Clover Lane, Waterbury; $60; registration required; to register, call Sue (802) 244-7909

This intermediate course considers a variety of topics essential to the practice of general astrology, including transits, progressions, solar returns, synastry and theories of chart comparison, psychological astrology and the Jungian concept of the inner city, in a format that stresses the integration of data into a coherent and meaningful delineation of a natal chart and its unfoldment over time. Pre-requisite: Astrology I, or its equivalent. Led by Sue Mehrtens.

Syllabus for Aging, Mondays, 1/6,13,20,27th; 7-9PM (snow day, 2/3, 7PM); 55 Clover Lane, Waterbury; $60; registration required; to register, call Sue (802) 244-7909

How do we sustain our creative dignity as we age? What are our goals beyond surviving another year? What do we still plan to accomplish? How do we find appropriate mentors and models? At the age of 77, these are questions I’ve been considering for some time. Many of us have had a sense of our progressive identities, but what happens as we move beyond the familiar, clear-cut demarcations that may have included career, marriage, parenthood, roles as mentors, illness and recovery, retirement? I believe we can establish a grasp on who we are stillbecoming by devising a syllabus or plan for our aging. In this course we will reflect on the stages we’ve accomplished or moved through to achieve our present stance. Which habits of action and mind are still useful? How do we experiment with new habits and routines? What ambitions and practices will create the necessary energy to take our next steps? Each of us will read and write our way through the creation of a personal syllabus or plan for our continuing development. Led by Ann Turkle.

Connecting to the Divine with Portable Pocket Shrines, 1/11; 1-4PM (snow day, 1/18, 1PM); 55 Clover Lane; $25; registration required; to register, call Sue (802) 244-7909

Take a journey into a place of inspiration and honoring of the divine creative source as we use guided imagery to enhance the art-making process of creating portable pocket shrines.
