Participating in the Peer Group Process is one step toward being Certified by OPA!

DAY 1 (July 19)

Discuss client work (Sharing wisdom and vulnerability).

Improve subtle dynamics and consultation performance by speaking about clients you have had difficulties with, exploring issues in an atmosphere of empathy and support. The group will look at the chart of a client you may have had struggles with and provide valuable perspective on possible solutions.

DAY 2 (July 20)

Share your style of chart reading with your group (Trading places with our clients, learning about different analysis styles).

Each participant will analyze the chart of another participant and deliver a consultation. This is a perfect way to learn about different techniques and see how astrologers draw different themes from the same chart.

DAY 3 (July 21)

Your vision, your business plan, your future. (Nurturing our professional development by exploring ways to be realistically successful).

Put numbers to your dreams! We will create Business Plans, so you can practically grow or stabilize your practice to be successful, fulfilling and enjoyable—for your unique goals. This is a time to discuss how to take things higher, or perhaps scale it down...whatever is in line for your astrology practice and for you to thrive!
