A seminar with Jason Holley
Saturday 4 April 2020, 10.30am to 4.45pm, Friends House, Euston

Mercury loosens us up, slips past defences, opens roads to uncharted psychic territory and the deepest callings of Soul. Jason will explore the profound effects that Mercury subtly facilitates natally and through visitations by transit, progression and synastry.
Part 2: Mars lies poised within us like the reflexes in our bodies: ever-ready for action and a natural base of operations for exploring the depth of our intrapsychic solar system. Jason will offer a rich, multidimensional view of Mars as an archetype of deep initiations, wherein impulse and desire lead to destruction or creation – or both. (£60 or included in Year 1’s Term 2 schedule and fees.)
