Introduction to Vedic Astrology

with Charlotte Benson and A.T. Mann

Wednesday, August 15, 2018
7:00 PM–8:30 PM

Do you believe in fate? One of the six sacred sciences of ancient India, along with Ayurveda, Vedic astrology is an analysis and forecasting system that offers a map of a person’s karma. This chart reveals a schedule of events that will unfold throughout their life, offering precise strategic approaches for maximizing well-being.

President of the American College of Vedic Astrology (ACVA), Charlotte Benson joins astrologer and author A.T. Mann in this introductory session on Vedic astrology. Participants will learn about the fundamentals and purpose of this astrological system, which uses ancient knowledge of behavior and time to project cycles and outcomes of time and events. Benson will demonstrate a Vedic horoscope reading on-stage with a volunteer from the audience.

If you would like to learn more about Tibetan Buddhist astrology and divination, join the preshow gallery tour, featuring the illuminated manuscript the White Beryl at 6:00 PM.

Presented in partnership with the American College of Vedic Astrology.
