In 1987 he had his own yagopavit sankar where Maharishi Ji personally blessed him. So, his childhood he spent to see and touch the feet of great person, in his age of 4yrs to 10yrs, and then Maharshi Ji moved to Vlodrop, Holland.

His schooling was like vedic student in Maharishi Vidya Mandir school where he learned yoga, meditation, siddhis – it was great period of his life.

He had done huge great work for society and poor people, and had successfully running school of 1.200 students.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi ji personally was giving him responsibility as administrative officer to see and take and organize camp, vaidya trainings, maharishi product trainings, pulse diagnose trainings, appoint of vaidyas to various health centers in the world, so all those vaidya people from India to various part of world during 1985 to 2000 were sent and appointed by channel of Adwait’s father during his work.

Then he got the responsibility as editor while writing the book of Triguna Ji’s biography, what was inauguraled by the President of India. During the time of the book editing he spent much time with Triguna Ji and received much of Triguna Ji’s knowledge and work experiences, and during that time they become very close to each other. In that period Triguna Ji suggested Adwait’s father to give little time to Indian government, so his father provided entrance in rastriya vidya petha (branch of ayurveda in Indian government) and it was blessing of Triguna Ji. That step gave milestone to Adwait’s father after what he was not limited only to Maharishi Nagar, he came in Indian level and from that moment until today Adwait and his father and their work are blessed from Triguna ji, who was like Adwait’s grandfather – Adwait raised up with him.

7:00   From Astrolabes to Zijes (1)                                                      Chris Mitchell

How Arabic science brought horoscopes to England. After the decline of the Roman Empire, knowledge of astrology almost disappeared in Western Europe. In the ninth century, English scholars knew that Venus had something to do with love. By the twelfth century, they were drawing up accurate charts, knew about house systems, and could do sophisticated chart analysis, and a few decades later this was on the curriculum in the new universities. In this talk, Chris Mitchell will look at what caused this explosion of astrological knowledge.

7:00   Carter Memorial                                                       Sue Merlyn Farebrother

Cosmic Jokerman

Are we all subject to a Cosmic Joke? How come that all the tools of astrology fit with our experience? How is it that we are born, a little innocent creature, at a specific date, time and worldly place? We are immediately blessed with not only a birth chart that will encapsulate our character, but a lifetime of transits and so on every year, for the whole of our lives to come? This lecture may raise more questions than it answers!

7:00  Karmic Synastry (1)                                                                 Zsuzanna Griga

Theory and practise of karmic synastry: do past life experiences impact on relationships? Can we categorise relationships with astrological tools? Is my partner a soul sibling, a soulmate, or a twin flame, and if yes, what can I do about it?

8:30 Karmic Synastry (2)                                                                   Zsuzanna Griga Biography: Zsuzsanna Griga has been practicing karmic astrology for 25 years. She teaches and works with clients in Budapest and in London. In Budapest she opened a healing centre in 2000, and also manages Clear Brook College of Parapsychology since 2003. She has named her astrological concept “Transcendental Karmic Astrology” as it uncovers the hidden karmic layers of the natal chart with the help of the asteroids, Trans-Neptunians, and fixed stars. The discovery and naming of the new celestial objects, the dwellers of the Asteroid Belt and the Kuiper Belt, is an ongoing process; as soon as another one is spotted and named mankind becomes aware of its workings. When you name something you give it a destiny, which will reflect back to you – a well-known psychological fact. Why is it important to uncover the hidden layers of a birth chart, you may wonder. Because the past influences the present, and by bringing it to the surface, by understanding and tackling it, the present incarnation can become a better, happier, healthier one. As a karmic astrologer, this is Zsuzsanna’s creed.

7:00   Dedicated Followers of Fashion                                     Christina Rodenbeck

From the bustle to the miniskirt, beards to dreadlocks, tattoos to bell-bottoms, the changing world of fashion is more sensitive to the movements of the planets than almost any other sphere. Fashion is a visual reflection of our collective emotions, our desires, our dreams, our fears and aspirations. Once you understand this, you can see how fashion can make astrology, the spirit of the times visible, seen through the refracting lens of specific designer’s charts. We’ll look at the charts of Alexander McQueen, Elsa Schiaparelli, Issey Miyake (among others) — and try to figure out what might be coming next — and why certain looks right now are so very fashionable.

7:00   2020: the 1980s, all over again?                                              Bernard Eccles

The Jupiter-Saturn conjunction closes the Jupiter-Saturn-in-earth-signs sequence for another six or seven centuries. The age of coal, iron, steam, industry and cars is over – which means that the tensions around the Gulf of Hormuz may be the precursor to the last war ever fought over oil! Note, too, the echo of the Iranian revolution at the very end of the 1970s, as Jupiter and Saturn approached their first air sign conjunction since the Middle Ages. Iran is humming with Jup-Sat resonance, and the US is having its Pluto return. H’mm. Saturn-Pluto in 1982 changed the social fabric of the UK, leading to riots and demonstrations. Saturn was in detriment when the two planets met in 1914 and 1947, but in 1982, in Libra, it was exalted. Good for right-wingers, poor for the left. This time it’s in its rulership, and whatever it brings, we have to live with it until 2053. More riots and unrest? Pretty much guaranteed.

Biography: Bernard Eccles is a writer and teacher of many years experience, a former President and a Life  Member of the Astrological Lodge. Although he lecturers regularly at the Faculty Summer School and at conferences nationwide, he still regards the ALL as his astrological home, having been a member since 1978.

In this lecture attendees will learn how to interpret these placements, as well as how to identify when the topics associated with them will become activated at specific times in the life of the native by using a timing technique known as annual profections.

Take home your own Astrology Oracle cards to use at home, along with a free guidebook download – plus see your full birth chart (with asteroids) on the day, if you don’t yet have it.

7pm and 8:30pm – The Astrological Soul: A Study of Eastern Astrology and Philosophy – Pandit Sanjay Rath

The founding question of all religions is: Where do the dear ones go after life? A quandary contemplated by generations, arriving at the notion of Atman or individual soul. The atman – bound by ropes called Karma – is forced to rebirth, to process the karma, and learns to untangle these ropes. To better understand atman and our karmic ties, the significance of the KIng of the Chart, Atmakaraka and Minister and other Significators or Chara Karakas is explored from a Vedic Astrology perspective.

7:00pm – Making the Most of Minor Aspects – Priscilla Costello

Over the centuries, minor aspects have been added to the basic Ptolemaic set of conjunction, opposition, square, trine, and sextile. Many modern astrologers now use semi-sextiles, quintiles, and quincunxes. What do quintiles and other, less well-known aspects (7ths, 9ths, 10ths, and 11ths) mean symbolically and practically? We’ll look at both the theory and practical application of a wider range of aspects than the usual ones.

7:00pm – Astrology and the Psychology of Selves – Rebekah Hirsch

This is the theory that every person’s psyche is made up of many different sub-personalities. As the psychosynthesis therapist Pierro Ferrucci says Each of us is a crowd. We all have our habitual ways of being, characteristics that we feel safe to express and these are known as the Primary Selves: But often some kind of Pleaser or Pusher or Protector. But we also have characteristics that we feel are not acceptable – our shadow selves referred to as the Disowned Selves. Watching over all this and deciding which selves are and are not acceptable is the fearful figure of the Judge or the Inner Critic. Usually this whole system of Primaries, Disowned energies and Critics is set up to conceal and protect our vulnerable selves such as the Inner Child. Working with the Psychology of Selves in a process known as Voice Dialogue, we can get to know all of these selves including making space to hear from Disowned and Vulnerable Selves and to discover the importance and value of the energy they hold. Of course this theory fits perfectly with astrology. In a horoscope we can see all of it – the primary selves, the disowned selves and the vulnerable selves. Understanding the process of Voice Dialogue can be immensely helpful to an astrologer as a way of communicating the paradoxes and polarities of the horoscope – the dance of the Selves – the theatre of the archetypes that is astrology.

7:00pm – Cancer, Capricorn and Stonehenge – Jessica Adams

Cancer and Capricorn season – when the Sun moves into both signs and stands still – are tied to the Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice at Stonehenge around 22nd June and 22nd December. In Australia, an Aboriginal stone arrangement called Wurdi Youang, called Australia’s Stonehenge, also marks Capricorn and Cancer season, even though the first Australians did not use that zodiac. The Sun is no longer even in front of these constellations in mid-June and mid-December now, yet why is that for thousands of years Midsummer and Midwinter have reflected Cancer and Capricorn themes? Come along to pick up a new Stonehenge Astrology audio walking tour and enjoy some Stonehenge cake at the summer party.
