What we're about

Awakening Interfaith Spiritual Community (Awakening) is a meditation and spiritual center in the tradition of Kriya Yoga, serving seekers from all religious and spiritual traditions. At Awakening you will find support for spiritually conscious living—Self- and God-realization—through regular meditation offerings, classes, retreats, kirtan, and special services.

Awakening welcomes all to share in "One Truth Known by Many Names." The teachings at the heart of Awakening are based upon the Kriya Yoga tradition that emphasize personal direct access to the essence of our being and to the Infinite or the Divine. It celebrates the harmony or golden thread of truth at the heart or mystical core of all truth teaching spiritual traditions.

A Simple Introduction to Vedic Astrology

Awakening Interfaith Spiritual Community

This class, taught over two Saturdays by Jean Wetzel, will be a very simple and brief introduction to the ancient astrology of India, known as jyotish. We will discuss the basics of looking at a North Indian astrological birth chart, as well as looking at some charts of famous people as models for interpretation. Primary topics will be astrological signs, houses, and planets and how to assess strengths and weaknesses in an individual's chart. The text book for the class will be "Vedic Astrology: Simply Put", by William Levacy. It can be purchased through Amazon by clicking the title above. (There will not be any books available at AWAKENING. Please purchase your book ahead of time.)
