About the seminar

Time is one of the most precious commodities in life, yet are we always making maximum use of it? Is there a relationship between our past, present, and future? And why are we sometimes so lucky and other times running into obstacles?

Find out the answers to these and other questions in this fascinating new online seminar designed for beginners, and expressed in simple, non-mystical terms.

You will learn the basic structure and components of the horoscope used in a Maharishi Jyotish Consultation, including the basic vocabulary and principles of prediction.

Each session, taught by Dr Ann Crowell, is filled with knowledge derived from the timeless Vedic Science of Jyotish as revived in its authenticity by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

In addition to the 5 classes with Dr Crowell, specially selected, pre-recorded lectures by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi will be available for viewing on our online platform at your convenience

Richly illustrated graphics and simple exercises will support and integrate each step of instruction. Plus enjoy lively interaction with your fellow classmates.

By the end you will have a solid understanding of the connection between the individual and the universe, a familiarity with the constituents of the birthchart, and be prepared to take more advanced courses on this practical and fulfilling discipline of Maharishi Vedic Astrology; including Maharishi Jyotish: Foundations of the Science of Transformation and Technology of Prediction.

Birth Chart: Learn the fundamentals of Jyotish including the structure of a Kundali (birth chart); the names and qualities of the Grahas, Rashis, and Bhavas; and the basic terminology commonly used in a Maharishi Jyotish consultation.
