About the Australian Apprenticeship Program
This apprenticeship program provides a practical education in client centred evolutionary astrological counseling. This process is inseparable from a commitment to one’s own personal and spiritual growth. Both aims are incorporated into Steve’s teaching. Students of life not wishing to attain a professional practice are most welcomed, and any of the seminars are designed to be done individually to the certificate.
Level 1 certificate is awarded after the student has attended 3 by 5 day programs. and then qualifies for a listing on Steve's website.
Level 2 certificates after 6 by 5 day programs, please note any programs already completed will count toward this certificate level.
The apprenticeship program commenced in Australia in April 2007, and this year sees us celebrate our 5th successive year. Lisa and Christine head Mercurial Connections, and co ordinate Steve’s Program here in Australia, & are excited too now provide participants throughout Europe with easy accessibility to the program. Any information you need or questions you may have, we are here to be of service to you and the continual growth of the program and evolutionary astrology.
Program Content - 2012 "Sex, Death and the Occult"
People inevitably make jokes when they hear that an edition of the Apprenticeship Program will be entitled "Sex, Death and the Occult" And that is fine - some dimensions of life impact us with such fierce intensity at the emotional level that we must use humour as a buffer against them. To be sure in this five day class we will laugh, We will laugh at human folly and we will laugh at deaths ultimate frailty. But we will also explore some very sensitive terrain - terrain that is not for the faint hearted. In fact, Steven views some of this material as so sensitive that he never teaches it outside the more intimate confines of the AP. Death comes to everyone, but how might we prepare for it? In many traditions, it is not simply " the end" but rather the greatest evolutionary challenge - opportunity - of ones life. What face might death present to us personally? We will not be attempting to determine the date ones death a dubious enterprise from both practical and ethical perspectives... but rather to help ourselves and our braver clients in the life long task of preparing for it. Halfway between the province of psychology and transcendent mysticism lies the realm of the occult. Here the evolving consciousness encounters powers normally latent in the mind magic, divination, healing. How might the birth chart cast light on these esoteric matters? How might the evolutionary astrologer, working with spiritually sophisticated clients wrestle with these possibilities? Completing our survey of this eigth house terrain, we consider the deeper and more conscious aspects of sacred sexuality. Among other possibilities, such sexuality emerges as one method of gathering the energy needed for occult work and for conscious dying. In this context sexuality embraces certain experiences connected with having a partner, but also a broader Erotic relationship with both Nature and Super nature.
