Yogic Counseling and Vedic Astrology
Most modern counseling modalities are focused on creating change and success in our outer conditions, to bring about inner changes. Yogic counseling aims to bring about inner transformation, to create change in our outer world. Like Yoga, the ultimate goal of Yogic counseling is to help the client to adapt a "posture of consciousness" rather than ego, fear, competition, and judgment to perceive the true immortal self that dwells within.
Yogic Counseling uses “techniques and postures” prescribed in the Yoga scriptures that we need to practice “off the mat”. The primary diagnostic tool used in Yogic Counseling is Jyotish (Vedic Astrology), that illuminates our predispositions (samsaras), which are often so strongly entrenched within us that as a result of our conscious or unconscious actions certain perceptions, desires, motivations, actions, feelings, and events become fated to occur. Yogic Counseling combines the knowledge of Yoga philosophy with the personal karmas revealed in the Vedic horoscope to help people increase, joy, compassion and fulfillment in their daily lives and allow for a natural enfoldment of divine union of the body, mind and spirit.
