2018 Schedule

The Year Ahead – 2018. Join me for our annual connection to the energies and astrology of the year, including meditation and manifestation. Sunday, January 7, 2018 – 11 am to 1 pm. $40. For more info or to register
Cycles of Evolving: Intermediate Evolutionary Astrology – Webinar/Online course. Learn about astrology from an evolutionary perspective, where an understanding of soul path and positive expressions of everything, including Saturn and Pluto, gives these teachings a unique spin. This class covers cycles and prediction: transits, progressions, solar arcs and solar returns, including how to work co-creatively with cycles to create integrated, positive outcomes. We’ll also touch into asteroids and fixed stars. It starts on Saturday, January 6th and is from 1 pm to 3:00 pm CA time. There are six meetings. $225. Register
Deepen Your Intuitive Wisdom – Webinar/Online Course. If you have the intuitive basics from previous studies with Kay or other studies and experience, this is your chance to deepen your skills. As you learn to integrate feeling, seeing, channeling and psychic listening skills, your intuition becomes more and more accurate and robust. And the cool thing about the Zoom Webinar platform is I can put you in pairs so you can be in a “room” with another person to practice (when we come to that point), which is actually less distracting and easier than being in person. This webinar/online course starts on Sunday, January 14th. There are three classes from 10 am to noon. Each one has a different theme:
January 14: Relationship
February 11: Career, Money & Manifestation
March 18: Health
$50 each. All three for $125 (recordings included)
Advanced Intuitive Group – Biweekly Webinar. This group has been ongoing for four years now and is thriving and deepening as the current members integrate intuition and intuitive healing processwork with their various careers. You may always email me if you feel you’re ready for this group with previous training or experience. Tuesdays @ 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. Email Kay for details.

For the Love of Saturn. An afternoon workshop with NCGR San Francisco. Saturday, September 8, 2018.

Would you like to look forward to your Saturn transits?
Understand the deeper evolutionary meaning of your natal Saturn potential? Join Saturnophile Kay Taylor for a deep dive into all things Saturn. Working with some famous charts and our own charts, we’ll look at natal Saturn placements and aspects and their evolved goal state. We’ll also explore major Saturn transits—to itself and to natal placements–tracing your experience of Saturn so far to understand what was meant to happen and now how to work in a healing way with what’s coming up. Bring your chart.

Kay Taylor Workshops

Praise for Kay’s Workshops

“The workshop yesterday was terrific. I felt higher than a kite on my way home. The whole experience was validating and enriching. It was especially nice as our culture in general doesn’t support or value that aspect of ourselves. Nice to be some place safe to learn and share freely.”

“Surprisingly to me, the teleclass was a richer experience than going to a meeting room because I was more able to relax, focus and meditate in the comfort of my own surroundings”

“I just love being in my own home and feeling like I’m connecting with a group — without having to drive anywhere.”


Retreats Abroad

Kay is in retreat planning mode.

Recently completed retreats (with co-teacher Michelle Cordero) included seven day adventures to southern Baja in May 2014 and April 2015 at Prana del Mar and a lovely  Ratna Ling retreat to the redwood lands of northern California.

In past years, Kay has taken many groups to the Pyrenee mountains to see the amazing caves and enjoy the delicious food and lifestyle of rural France. Tuscany in 2007 included a week long stay in a medieval castle near Florence and day trips to Sienna and Assisi. In 2008 a group went to Costa Brava on the northeast coast of Spain near Barcelona and lounged around on the beaches and walked every morning along the sea–with just enough time for meditation and inner work. In 2009 the retreTuscanyat group journeyed to the Languedoc region of France, famous for its wine, but the Lerab Ling Tibetan Buddhist traditional temple was one of the high points of the visit.

Future trips under consideration: Hawaii, Bali, France, Spain …
