NEXT SESSION BEGINS: Thursday August 24, 2017 (4 weeks)
TIME: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT / 2:00 - 3:00 PM EDT
Join us for the book hour. Over the course of 4 weeks we will explore a book related to the theory and philosophy of astrology. As the signs change, so will our book! Your moderators will be Donna Woodwell and Enid Newberg.
Begins August 24 Sun in Virgo
How does the philosophy of Plato, the Stoics, and the Buddha hold up to the investigation of modern science? In his broad reaching book the Happiness Hypothesis, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt explores how the roots of the world’s great spiritual traditions still resonate today. If you’re looking to bridge the gap between ancient and modern beliefs, this book will give you much food for thought.
September 21 Sun in Libra
In his Medieval poem “Divine Comedy,” Dante recounts his epic journey through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise. What is little understood by astrologers (and academics) is how much Dante’s work is infused with astrology’s rich cosmological heritage. Psychologist, astrologer and Kepler Instructor Joseph Crane brings Dante’s astrological underpinnings to light in a way that makes all astrology students proud of their heritage once again.
To participate, make sure to purchase a copy of the book. We will take it in stages so you don't need to worry about having read the entire thing by the first week!
