About the program 

Each group consists of 4 participants maximum, so there is only space for 12 participants.

Participants must have at least 6 months of paid client reading practice.

The program takes place from 9am to 4pm during the three days (Aug 28-29-30). Each day is focused on an different area of our practice:

Participating in the Peer Group Process is one step toward being Certified by OPA!

DAY 1 (August 28)

Discuss client work (Sharing wisdom and vulnerability).

How to improve the dynamics and performance, and speak about clients you had difficulties with and what were the issues. The group will look at the chart of a client you may have had struggles with and provide valuable perspective on possible solutions.

DAY 2 (August 29)

Share your style of chart reading with your group (Trading places with our clients, learning about different analysis styles).

Each participant is invited to analyze the chart of another participant. This is a perfect way to learn about different techniques and see how astrologers draw different themes from the same chart.

DAY 3 (August 30)

Your vision, your business plan, your future. (Nurturing our development and ways to be realistically successful).

Put numbers to your dreams! This is a time to discuss and write down how to make your dreams come true, how to practically make your practice successful, fulfilling and enjoyable. This is a time to discuss how to take things higher, or perhaps scale it down…whatever is in line for your astrology practice and yourself to thrive!
