IMMERSION

Vedic Astrology:

The Science of Light and Life Counseling

March 20 - April 19, 2023 | Series of 10 sessions

WITH
Mitesh Raichada and Devang Shah

The study of Jyotish, known as the science of light, helps us understand how patterns in the cosmos give insight to other patterns that we may find in our day-to-day experiences.

By learning about and understanding these patterns, we can gain insights to optimize our life. We will systematically review astronomical sciences, how they connect to astrological principles, and how those combinations give insight into life.

Vedic sciences are designed to enable us to live our best life. Ayurveda addresses our physical, mental and spiritual wellness through understanding our unique combinations of elements, doshas and gunas. Similarly, Jyotish gives us insight to the material phases of our life like family, career, relationships, financial well being, and dwellings through the patterns found in the cosmos.

There are 6 limbs of Jyotisha: observational astronomy, astronomical calculations, natal astrology, astrology of questions, astrology for initiation, and omenology. The subject of this course will be natal astrology which assess the patterns in the cosmos at the time of one’s birth. In order to get to a place where we can do a basic assessment, we will review the building blocks of Jyotish which include signs, planets, houses, asterisms, and the combinations they create. We will conclude the course by rooting you in the fundamentals of Jyotish as measured by a basic assessment, so you can advance your study in Jyotish and deepen your knowledge from here.

Topics we will cover in this immersion

We invite you to come join us on this 10 session journey into the foundations of Jyotish vidhya, the science of light to explore:

  • Concept of karma and how Jyotish gives us insight to various levels of karma and optimal roles and timelines. Causation vs Correlation, types of Jyotish.
  • Astronomy Basics and how it relates to Astrology. Positions of constellations, planets, houses, orbital movements, rising and setting
  • Foundational components of Jyotish - houses, constellations (rashi), planets, nakshatras
  • Bhava vichara - Using the combinations of planets, houses and rashis to asses karmic patterns
  • Vimshottari Dasha - Sequence of Ruling planets in a timeline
  • Planetary Strength, Weakness, Stability and instability
  • Concept of Yogas - Unique combinations
  • Proforma for a chart reading Example Charts / Readings
  • Medical Jyotish
  • How to use Jyotish as a tool for providing guidance, where to continue your study from here.

Meet The Teacher

AyurPrana Founder and Immerssion Guide

Mitesh Raichada, CAP

Mitesh’s passion for Ayurveda was first cultivated while studying to become a certified practitioner under Vasant Lad. An enthusiastic and unyielding seeker of knowledge, Mitesh studied Indian philosophy at the Tattvajnana Vidhyapeeth in India, Jyotish with Hart deFouw, holds a Reiki Level 1 certification, and has undertaken intensive clinical immersion programs with Vasant Lad in India.

These days, Mitesh is busy being the Executive Vice President of the Ayurvedic Institute, but before that, he co-founded a highly successful real estate and hospitality company. His zeal for building powerful leaders and creating mindful business cultures overflows into the classrooms he leads with compassion and insight.

When not studying, teaching, or practicing, you can find Mitesh playing his bass guitar or enjoying the limitless beauty of nature.

Devang Shah

Devang is passionate about anything that inspires the scientific and mechanical side of his brain. This life-long exploration has led to an Electrical Engineering degree from CalTech and has also called Devang to study extensively with highly regarded master’s of the Vedic Traditions, including Hart deFouw (completing both the Vastu and Jyotish trilogies under Hart’s tutelage) and Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc (having audited the ASP1 program at The Ayurvedic Institute).

Devang's appreciation of the gross and subtle mechanics of the world around him translates into many interests, including an abiding love of bicycles, coffee, cars, and Vastu Shastra - as the study of space and the flow of energy within that space.

Devang is a caring teacher, whose passion and respect for his subjects is infectious! The attention Devang brings to the minute details means that he offers insightful and lasting instruction, especially in those subjects that rely on a system of understanding, such as Vastu Shastra and Jyotish.

"That’s what I love about this science. Because with the right Vastu someone can really put their heart into their home." ~ Devang Shah
