Why – different person, same relationship dynamics!
How – can I recognise, create and maintain, mutually loving relationships?
When – will the stars align for us to meet?
Relationships, including with partners, family, friends, colleagues, and our community, can be our greatest source of immense joy and huge stress.
Join us for this unique opportunity to enjoy a supportive, in-depth, fun and creative weekend in a stunning location.
Using the incisive tools of Relationship Astrology, we will help you explore your most common relationship patterns. We’ll also look at the timing of relationships, the meaning of compatibility and how all relationships are an integral and valuable part of our learning and growth...
Bring your charts and the charts of loved ones (with their permission), to begin our relationship adventure under blue skies and sunshine!
Our approach is inclusive of all genders and sexualities.
For confidentiality reasons, the workshop will not be recorded, but you will receive a course handbook containing worksheets to complete in your own time, before or during the weekend. They will help you engage more deeply with your own chart, and enrich your experience of the workshop.
