Five years ago I had a powerful spiritual awakening while drinking
Ayahuasca (a visionary plant medicine) with traditional curanderos
(healers) in the Amazon Jungles near Iquitos, Peru. I recently
published a book about my experiences called, "Fishers of Men: The
Gospel of an Ayahuasca Vision Quest." Throughout the course of the past
five years and eighty-plus ayahuasca ceremonies I was guided by visions
into a study of the planets and heavenly bodies. Having never studied
astrology, and knowing only as much as my horoscope "sign" from popular
magazines, I started receiving archetypal lessons during ayahuasca
ceremonies, all of which regarded the various planets and heavenly
movements of our solar system. Nightlight Astrology was born out of my
increasingly deep respect for the science of spiritual evolution; as
well as my deepest respect for the power of astrological counseling.
The more I study these ancient arts and offer my developing guidance to
others, the more humbled I am by the rich lessons of life and human
history. I know now without a doubt that I am an eternal student of the
movements and patterns of the universe. I know this as much as I trust
that life is eternal.
The Nightlight Vision can be summarized by the following goals:
* To provide affordable, "donation-based" astrological counseling and education to the public.
* To cultivate an archetypal-astrology counseling model called, "Nightlight Counseling."
* To create a staff of kindred-spirited Astrological counselors and educators through a series of 1 year astrologer training intensives.
* To create a highly transformational and educationally challenging 4 year Astrologer's Training Course and Counseling Practicum by 2015.
* To bring the subjects and study of spiritual evolution into an honest dialog with mainstream culture.
