Could you help by going into more detail about your Sabian Symbols course. What are your teachings like? How do you offer the material-videos, speaking, written? I did read that you focus the exploration on the individual Sabian Symbols which I feel would be helpful for me.
What is your past experience with the symbols?
I came across Sabain Symbols long ago, before I had much knowledge of astrology and almost none of self-development. My own degrees seemed irrelevant, confusing or trite. Much later I met someone who had a deep interest in them herself, and she triggered my own study, although that was rather casual - and anyway by that time I had begun my journey into Sufism, which is bottomless and demanding. Eventually I had the time and appetite to look into them deeply, and found that writing an interpretation of Marc Edmund Jones's work was the best way for me to learn what was offered by him.
That project enabled me to expand my awareness and correct some misapprehensions I had had about myself. In particular, certain characteristics clearly related to planets other than those I had originality thought. Most helpfully though, the Sabians somehow gave me permission to be more of who I was because 'it was written'.
Later, when I came across Dane Rudhyar, I found a way to reconcile my Sufism with the hidden secrets of the Sabians. His work is unrivalled in my opinion, and takes Jones's to another level. This website is my attempt to bring together the interpretations of Jones, Rudhyar and Sufism. By doing this I feel I have advanced to a point where my life purpose has been fully revealed. One reason for me to offer this course is to express gratitude for these teachers that went before us to keep alive the tradition of wisdom that could so easily be lost otherwise.
