Astrology & The Law of Attraction
October 2--14, 2010

Facilitated by Kevin B. Burk

Everyone in the world wants the same thing: happiness. We spend our lives seeking love, success, money, prosperity, fame and security because we believe that when we finally find that perfect relationship, or enough money, success or freedom, then we'll be happy. But somehow, things rarely work out that way. There is, however, an ultimate “Secret,” a simple principle that, when applied consistently, will guarantee true happiness and the means and the freedom to enjoy it: Choose the best-feeling thought currently available to you.

It's that simple. Of course, simple isn't the same thing as easy. In order to choose the best-feeling thought currently available to us, we have to be in the Now, in the Present Moment. This is often challenging, because each of us has an ego, often known as the “Monkey Mind” because it's similar to a tree full of monkeys: it's always chattering away, jumping from branch to branch, and thought to thought, making so much noise that we find it difficult to be in the Present Moment, so that we can choose the best-feeling thought currently available to us.

The good news is that all we need to do in order to quiet the Monkey Mind is to give it a banana. Think of this once-in-a-lifetime Astrology & The Law of Attraction experience with Kevin B. Burk in Italy as a huge bunch of bananas for your monkey mind.

During this 10-day experience, you will learn simple, practical techniques and Spiritual Practices that can completely transform your life. You will discover the true “Secret” of accessing the full power of the Law of Attraction. You will discover what it means to be truly, completely financially free. And you will learn how to use Astrology to empower and support your daily life—even if you've never studied Astrology!

Through guided meditations, spiritual practices, and written exercises, you will journey to meet each of the seven Astrological Archetypes. These energies not only live in our unique birth charts, but they also live inside each of us. As you create a deep, personal connection with your Astrological Archetypes, you will learn how to step into Right Relationship with each of these energies. This powerful process opens the door for you to experience the levels of Love, Joy, Freedom, Creativity and Prosperity that you've always dreamed of.

Italy Facilitation Itinerary

October 3: Evening — Opening

In the opening session, Kevin will create a context for the experience you will enjoy over the next ten days. You will learn the one true “Secret” of Happiness (Choose the Best-Feeling Thought Currently Available to You). You will learn the true nature of the Law of Attraction. You will begin to explore and map Human Consciousness. And you will meet each of the seven Astrological Archetypes (also known as the seven personal planets) that you will be working with. You will learn the core Spiritual Practices that are the key to stepping into Right Relationship with each of the planets. And you will discover the true meaning of financial freedom, and how you can experience it right now. Expect to laugh, to learn, and to have a lot of fun!

October 4: Evening

In this class, you will learn about the Sun, the Archetype of the Hero. You will experience a guided meditation that will take you to meet your Sun, and discover how to connect with this energy as it lives within you. This class will include ample time to discuss and explore the core concepts presented in the opening session.

October 5: Afternoon

In this class, you will learn about Saturn, the Archetype of the Judge, and The Moon, the Archetype of the Reflection. Stepping into Right Relationship with Saturn is a crucial aspect of moving out of Victim Consciousness and claiming your true power. You will journey to meet Saturn through a guided meditation. And you will experience the Present Moment Awareness Safety Meditation, one of the most powerful and essential Spiritual Practices available to you.

October 6: Lunch Hour

This will be an informal discussion and question and answer session. Kevin will address any questions that have come up based on the material presented so far.

October 7: Evening

In this class, you will meet Mars, the Archetype of the Warrior, and Venus, the Archetype of The Beloved. Mars represents the things that we want , while Venus represents the things that we value. In order to tap into the true power of the Law of Attraction, we must be in right relationship with both Mars and Venus; but most importantly, we must be aligned with our Core Values. Happiness has nothing to do with getting what we want. Happiness has everything to do with connecting with what we truly value— and recognizing that our Core Values are eternal, infinite, and present in all things.

October 8: Lunch Hour

This will be an informal discussion and question and answer session. Kevin will address any questions that have come up based on the material presented so far.

October 9: Evening

In this class, you will meet Mercury, the Archetype of the Storyteller. Everything that we experience as real in this “little r” reality is nothing more than a story—and Mercury is the Storyteller. When we change the words, we change the world. In this class, you will learn some powerful techniques that support you in questioning your story, and that can ultimately help you to move from the “little s” story that keeps you small, to the “Big S ” Story that is the Hero's Journey of your life.

October 10: Evening

In this class, you will meet Jupiter, the Archetype of the Dreamer. Jupiter is how we grow and expand, and how we experience faith. Through a guided meditation, you will journey to meet Jupiter, and you will discover the difference between imagination and fantasy.

October 11: Tour

This class will be an informal discussion and question and answer session. Kevin will address any questions that have come up based on the material presented so far. The emphasis will be on integrating each of the Astrological Archetypes, and how to step into and maintain right relationship with each of them.

October 12: Evening

Now that you've met and had a personal experience of each of the seven Astrological Archetypes, it's time to go to the next level. In this class, you will begin to learn how to relate to each archetype as it shows up in your own, personal, unique birth chart. You will learn the basics of Essential Dignities—how the signs and the planets relate to each other. These simple techniques will support you in uncovering deeper insights into your life

October 13: Evening — Closing

In this final session, you will go even deeper with the Essential Dignities, learning how to work with the complete Board of Directors that influences each planet in your chart. This class will be experiential—you will have the opportunity to take on the role of one of the planets on a Board of Directors! The class—and the entire experience—will complete with a closing ceremony.
