Saturn: The Karma We Cannot Avoid – with Komilla Sutton

Friday, March 27 @ 7:00 PM - Sunday, March 29 @ 3:30 PM

Choose a residential stay or attend per session 

Saturn (or Shani) is often misunderstood and cast as the villain of the horoscope. However, he actually brings wisdom, and the discipline needed to overcome obstacles in our life. This weekend we will explore Saturn’s effect in the birth chart and the role he plays in making us face our karma. Learn how to successfully navigate Saturn’s dasha. Study the effects of Saturn transits, especially the challenge and rewards of the 7-1/2-year Sade Sati period. Traditional remedies to deal with Saturn’s influence will also be discussed.
