Spring 2013 Plant & Planets: Embracing your Inner Waters

Jaysen Paulson of Cosmophilia and The Portland School of Astrology co-taught this class with Jen Gouvea. It was a great collaboration.

The Plants and Planets four-week series was a huge success!! Each participant worked with an individualized healing formula in depth for one month. During the class each student also received a copy of their natal chart and an astrology map of key terms. Basic natal themes in the chart and key transits were discussed. Participants learned about their personal moon and aspects in their natal chart and a description for how this moon signature suggests key themes for emotional nourishment and happiness. The Water transits of this year and the grand trine in July (specific dates are July 17-19, 2013) were discussed as well as an experiential meditation and exercise. Key flower essences for understanding the sacred feminine and the balance between masculine and feminine were reviewed. There was a large emphasis on being present with emotions and opening to the inner space with the opportunity to create art work and share insights. Each participant experienced significant transformation. Here is a description of a few flower essences and healing themes people worked with...

"Through the Flower Essence and Astrology series with Jen and JayP, I have been empowered to further my personal journey in a deeper way than I've ever experienced. I first took Jen's Flower Essence class, learning and using a custom flower essence she chose for me. So I had already witnessed a profound awakening in my body and soul, as the flower essence helped me personally to explore and assert my life desires. Taking the class with Jen and JayP has given me a wonderful introduction to Astrology, and blended it with knowledge of the flower essences. My life and myself have changed so much over this short period of time, but it's more as if I'm awakening to who I am and am learning how to honor and move toward that person. I'm incredibly grateful to have received the amazing support and deep knowledge that both of these teachers have to share with others. During this time I've begun a journey of self discovery and personal power, making changes in my life that I'd felt were just beneath the surface for the past several years. I feel like I have been awakened, and am reconnecting with my entire body and soul. Some big changes are occurring in my life now, and I'm ready to embrace them."
