Jyotish: The Wisdom of the Cosmos

Using Vedic Astrology to Embrace Your Infinite Potential with Anand Mehrotra
Monday, August 18, 2008 7:30pm-9:00 pm, Big Room, Solstice Center

"A child is born on that day and at that hour when the celestial rays are in mathematical harmony with his individual karma." -Sri Yukteswar

This evening Anand will take you to the magical world of the planets and unveil their effects on your life: past, present, and future. When you align with the forces of the cosmos, you live in greater balance and integrity with your deepest wisdom.

Jyotish, in Sanskrit translated as “science of light,” is a profound and mathematically sophisticated form of astrology that originated in the ancient Vedic tradition of India. A sister science to Yoga and Ayurveda, it describes how planetary patterns at the time of our birth give valuable clues in helping us understand our life’s journey. Through careful analysis of cosmic influences, Jyotish can help us realistically evaluate our strengths and weaknesses, energy patterns and karmic tedancies in order to optimize our full potential.

By forecasting the changing trends and periods of our lives, Jyotish Astrology can enable us to make more evolutionary choices. It can offer practical remedial measures to help alleviate areas of difficulty, giving us the confidence to manifest our true destiny and create success, happiness and harmony on all levels.

Anand was born and raised in Rishikesh, the foothills of the Himalayas, which is said to be yoga's birthplace. He was raised among Himalayan yogis and masters and adopted a yogic way of life from a young age. Anand has been teaching since the age of 16 in different parts of the world; and his students range from experienced yoga masters in Europe to celebrity clients in L.A. For several years he has provided Vedic astrological readings to Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa and countless others. With his main commitment to freedom, Anand established the Anahata Awareness Movement in 2003. Visit www.anahataawareness.com .

Investment: $20 if paid in advance/ $25 at the door.
Venue: The Solstice Center, 302 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO
Contact: sara@fourmermaids.com or 303-800-0878

Anand will be teaching a weekend intensive on Vedic Astrology at Om Time, Denver from August 15-17.

He will also be available for private readings Monday August 18- Wednesday August 20 in Boulder. These last 1.5 hours and cost $150. To schedule your session, contact Sara at sara@fourmermaids.com or 303-800-0878.



Ayurvedic Support Group-

Wouldn't it be great to meet with other Ayurvedic specialists to share our wisdom and support each other as healers? Well, it's happening! come on out! Location: Lotus Room, Solstice Center, Thursday August 21, 7:00-9:00

We are pulling together a peer group of Ayurvedic Practioners in the Boulder area on a monthly basis to meet for a few hours. The vision is to create a supportive (non-competitive) group of Ayurvedic Specialists, Practitioners of all levels and the serious student to share our wisdom of this vast science, to get tips from others, to offer advice, to share our tough case studies and to support the true and original intention of Ayurveda in healing ourselves and our community. This is not a business or profit oriented meeting - so please come with your beginner minds and humility.

The first hour will be dedicated to discussing focused topics and the second hour will be open to share with others our general questions and to discuss ideas on the best approach for our patients.

List of topics will be decided by the group but may consist of: herbalized oils, mudras, ayurvedic asanas, references from Charaka or Astanga Hrdayam etc, Nadis and Marma points, PK, Vedic Astrology/Medical Astrology, Massage techniques, Ayurvedic Psychology, Bastis etc.
