ASA Lecture Series- Renu Namjoshi- VEDIC ASTROLOGY
“Embody the Truth, Not your Myth”
To some extent we all live out our myth. the frame of reference we adapted in our childhood and the genetic code we inherited from our ancestors. The horoscope reveals this myth, the thinker “I” “me” or “self” that determines our destiny. All Vedic Life sciences including, Yoga and Vedic Astrology, were created not to embody, but to be liberated from our myth. Jung referred to this as psychological maturation, so our true personality can emerge. Joseph Campbell saw this innate human struggle as the basis of a broad spectrum of myths and stories throughout cultures and history, which he called the monomyth.
Most healing modalities, including the monomyth, suggest a chronology of stages. In Vedic Astrology healing is not sequential, we can stay in one stage for decades, or totally skip some of the stages. In this lecture, Renu will use the template of Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey and the ancient Vedic algorithms of the 120-year planetary cycles of the Vimshottari Dasha system to see how the storyline of each unique horoscope unfolds decade by decade, year by year and month by month. We will also learn how the planets reveal our super powers, as well as our kryptonite and translate to the characters dragons, villains and mentors we encounter on our journey.
Renu has dedicated the last twenty years of her life to the study and practice of the Vedic Sciences: Jyotish (Vedic Astrology), Ayurveda, Yoga, Meditation and Mantra. She began her formal studies in1998 with Dr. David Frawley of the American Institute of Vedic Studies in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and has continued to study with many eminent scholars. As an avid student of life, her academic interest also includes, mythology, Joseph Campbell, Jungian psychology, functional medicine and neuroscience. Her expertise is her distinctive ability to translate and incorporate ancient Vedic systems of healing with current models of knowledge that enhance our understanding of 21st century healing and wellness. Renu believes that maintaining the body/mind/consciousness ecosystem is just as delicate a balancing act as restoring the earth's ecosystem and there are no simple formulas that work for everyone, as each person's physical/mental and karmic ecosystem is unique. She customizes her approach to each and every client but her main diagnostic tool remains the same, which is the Vedic horoscope. In addition to her one-on-one work with clients, she also offers scholarly articles, classes, retreats and workshops.
