Retreats with Tarik and Anne

Yoga, Astrology and You Retreat 7-10 November 2019

Astrology is a language we use to try and explain the relationship between the world around us and the cosmos our world is woven into. There is undoubtedly a co-relation between what happens here on earth and rest of the solar system. Our ancestors took note of their findings and soon began to use them to improve their lives. There was, so to speak, a time and a place for everything. In today’s scientific world, we have more reliable methods for measuring and understanding the laws that govern nature and are tempted to dismiss Astrology as an outdated system based on superstition and speculation. However, when you take the time to test Astrology, it becomes as evident as the nose on your face that there is something to it. It is a symbolic map of life hidden in plain view. Astrology teaches us about the nature of symbol and reveals and extraordinary pattern to reality that has existed under our very noses.

It is important to understand that the “stars incline but do not compel”. We can learn to recognise the cosmic weather patterns both externally in the world around us as well as within our own internal landscape. There are multiple cycles at work in our lives that do not belong to us but are equally a part of in the way we choose to live. In the words of Scott Peck, Life is difficult and Astrology can teach us to navigate through life more skilfully and help us to understand the symbolic nature of our difficulties. By learning Astrology, we come to the instinctive realisation that there is a higher purpose at work and we gradually learn how to unlock our own potential.

The gift of a symbol is that it can relate to a whole family of ideas. The Sun for example does not only represent our creative light, but also our physical heart, our father (our source) and our future. It represents our hero’s journey towards self-realisation.

We each have a birth chart that is a snap shot of the cosmos from the point of view of the date, time and place of our birth. It is a unique chart though much fascinating research has been done on the charts of twins born within minutes of each other in the same location.

I run Astrology courses with my esteemed colleague Anne Ashton. We first met in an Astrology class in 1989 and have remained friends and colleagues ever since. We ran our first Astrology retreat this summer which turned out to be great success, so we will continue to run courses and retreats into the future. Our courses train you to read your own birth chart and interpret the key symbols and relationships within the chart.

We will be running a three day retreat at Parks Place in the beautiful countryside of Hampshire from 7-10 November 2019. You need to have some idea of how to read a chart to get the best out of this retreat so if you would like to join us, we recommend you do the Introduction to Astrology day first in central London on April 6th and then repeated again on October 5th.

The total cost of the retreat including, all workshops, food and board is £399 if you pay in full by July 31st 2019.


We are offering a special deal of £480 for those who sign up for the October Introduction to Astrology day and the Retreat at the same time.

Here’s some feedback from previous retreats:

The retreat met all my expectations. Anne and Tarik were very knowledgeable about the subjects and made a very good team. The delivery was interesting, motivating and very engaging. I was very inspired and came away with new tools that will enhance my mental and physical well-being. The whole experience from start to finish was wonderful.
I very much enjoyed the whole experience and feel more equipped to meet my new goal. More positive, inspired and relaxed.
What a wonderful, enlightening surpise this weekend was. I would definitely revisit this course again.
Great information, Great experience. Great people. A fantastic experience.
I’ve gained new insight into myself that gives me a direction of travel for change. Lots of ideas to work on and tools to do that.
