This is an introductory course and will not authorize you to practice Jyotish for consultations. It will give an understanding of the various tools and methodologies of Indian astrology from a traditional lineage. It will give the foundations to either understand what an astrologer is utilizing in a consultation or to give the resources and guidance for those beginning a deeper study.
Primary Introductory Course Teachers
Mrinmoyee is in a long term love affair with Mother India, the land of her spiritual birth. She has lived primarily in India for the last 2 decades, and while she appreciates most all aspects of the culture, Vedic Astrology, Meditation, and Devotional practices have been her primary focus.
Having grown up in the US, she deeply sees the need for the Vedic sciences in the modern western life. She lived for 10 years in an Indian Buddhist spiritual community in North India where meditation and seva (service) were the foundations of her practice. Here she experienced the traditional teachings passed down through a lineage that is customary in India. As her interest in Vedic Astrology grew it took her to different regions and teachers of India and the US. She has studied Vedic Astrology for the last 10 years, and has given hundreds of readings to people all over the world in the last 5 years.
She offers introductory workshops on Vedic Astrology, and retreats in India. But the main focus of her work is personalized birth chart consultations. She has studied with both traditional and modern teachers, and gives a traditional analysis of the chart combined with a modern, applicable interpretation. While Vedic Astrology is Hindu in its origins, a person need not be following that path to benefit from her readings. Advice on career, relationships, finances, ideal living locations, and spirituality are just some of the areas of life that can be covered in a session. Learn more at mrinmoyeeastrology.com
