Astrology – The Twelve Steps to Healing Masterclass Retreat


Availability: 5 in stock


Join us in the beautiful surroundings of South Wales for an enlightening astrological masterclass. In this workshop, we will delve into the twelve signs of the zodiac and explore how they serve as a blueprint for psychological and spiritual transformation.

During this masterclass, you will gain a visionary perspective on the twelve signs. We will examine them not only as symbols representing different stages of human life but also as fundamental elements of astrology itself. Drawing inspiration from the well-known twelve-step program, this workshop will offer a profound vision of healing.

Renowned astrologer Dane Rudhyar saw the Earth’s journey around the Sun as a metaphor for the growth of the personal self guided by the spiritual self. This journey forms the ecliptic, which serves as the foundation for the twelve signs. Originally conceptualized as a twelve-step journey symbolizing the development of the personal self towards a unified existence, the twelve signs hold deep meaning.

By exploring the twelve signs from the perspective of the 12-note harmonic blueprint, we can enrich our understanding of their psychological and spiritual significance.

Throughout the retreat, we will cover the following topics:

  • Exploring the psychological essence of each of the twelve signs and the valuable lessons they offer.
  • Understanding how each sign builds upon the preceding one, creating a complex tapestry of meaning.
  • In-depth exploration of three signs of the Zodiac each day. This immersive approach will provide you with a profound appreciation for the richness of every astrological archetype.

Additionally, alongside the comprehensive understanding of astrology, we will delve into the core principles of healing associated with each sign. Mark will share detailed examples from his extensive client base and draw on substantive historical research to illustrate these principles.

This masterclass serves as both a study of the general principles of astrology and an exploration of how the natal chart can unveil the core challenges and healing paths in an individual’s life.

Feedback for the Previous Master Class

“With picturesque Wales as the stage, Mark opened his home to a group of eager astrologers from all over the world and all walks of life. This wasn’t a cookbook astrology walk through the archetypes. It was a deeper look at archetypal energies, patterns and symbology within a chart. When I say deep, I don’t mean more complex, in fact, the stripped back approach of interpreting the chart was paradoxically where the depth emerged. Personally, the blend of depth psychology and evolutionary astrology greatly appeal to me and working through the example charts only helped to solidify how great both modalities compliment and support each other. As a teacher, Mark is engaging and personable and communicates with compassion, humour, sincerity, wisdom and ease. I hoped to leave a somewhat better astrologer, but I left with something more, I was put back in touch with what it means to be human. One of the greatest lessons was the power of presence, to sit, listen and be in dialogue with another human being. A truly transformational experience. I gained a renewed sense of confidence; empowered to put my inspiration into action. Thank you to Mark, Patrick, Tony and Keith for an incredible week.” – Jen

“The Leading Edge Masterclass was a truly enriching experience. Mark Jones has the unique ability to combine astrology with a psychotherapeutic perspective and quickly grasp what lies at the heart of a situation. During the Masterclass Mark demonstrated this incredibly powerful methodology, underscoring the importance of understanding one’s own evolutionary journey for the purpose of healing both self and others. This is important work which Mark approaches compassionately and without ego. For anyone looking to more deeply understand themselves, and their role in making a difference in the lives of others, this Masterclass is a must!” – Jayne

“How to sum up a week in beautiful historic Newport, Wales, meeting new friends, and learning something that has allowed me to deepen my work and broaden the lens through which I see the world? Using astrology, Mark grounds the incredibly abstract concept of Soul, into the mundane everyday world we live in. The beauty of this work for clients is, if you can consciously touch upon the meaning within your own journey, well that is a game changer, because you have then consciously brought Soul into the World and the World needs more than ever, human beings consciously working with their Soul. Humanity needs more astrologers doing this work. ” -Debra T.
