Turning Points Retreat: A Psychological and Astrological Study of Transformation
Join us in beautiful South Wales for an astrological masterclass exploring the nature of key moments of personal transformation in the development of the individual life.
For the last 5 years, Mark has been working with independent researcher and astrologer Patrick Graham to study many hundreds of birth charts in detail to reveal critical points of life significance in the development of the individual. We wish to share the fruits of our labour with you.
Our focus: a detailed analysis of the power of transits and progressions to challenge the inherent potential of the natal chart.
The movement picture – the transits of Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto to personal planets, angles and nodes
The power of the transiting nodes
The archetypal blueprint of the cycles of Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto.
Combination of the transit and progressed picture through Solar Arcs
After an introduction to the theory, we will apply what we have learned to the natal chart with the added understanding born of the fruits of research into the key events that have shaped people’s lives. This critical key will help unlock the most purposeful insights into the natal chart in the most direct way.
Throughout the retreat, we will incorporate the core principles of spiritual psychology to create a context from which we can understanding the nature of personal growth and healing.
We will allow plenty of time for Q&A every day, and there will be ample opportunity to engage with Mark personally.

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.
