Thursday 23 April
Workshop and Puja. Pandit Samavedula:Navagraha and Brihaspati (Jupiter) Puja Workshop focused on Jupiter and the guru.
Workshop Komilla Sutton:Sun Nakshatras and Destiny
Certain nakshatras from Surya show the fruits of the past lives. These show the karma – both good and bad that we have to experience in this life time. As Surya is the soul, Atma – the nakshatras from it reflect the fixed karma- one we cannot avoid. Phaladeepika call them upagrahas of the Sun (different from the other upagrahas or shadows of the Sun like Dhuma etc).
This knowledge comes from the Sarvatobhadra chakra which shows certain times when destiny is experienced and points to 8 nakshatras which hold the key to the destiny. These are known as Suryanaat Nakshatras.
Friday 24 April
Workshop Andrew Foss: The fundamental flaws of all the Ascendants and their remedies.
Every Ascendant has a particular flaw or weakness. There are two types of flaw depending on the distribution of the stars as interpreted by the sages.
This knowledge has not been fully presented before but is very critical for understanding ourselves and the charts or others. As well as going through the 12 Ascendants, Andrew will discuss the traditional remedies.

Sanjay Rath: Relationships and Marriage
Pandit Sanjay Rath is famous for his uniquely innovative teaching. For the first time, he will show us how the interaction and overlapping of planetary energies creates and sustains our relationships including marriage.
Another key element is the Upapada Lagna, something which Parashara and Jaimini teach but which has been largely ignored by Vedic astrologers. Sanjay will show how this and other key techniques are used.
