Join Edmonds, WA-based Dennis Flaherty, Vedic Astrologer / Jyotishi, for this information-packed class about how we measure time.


Most modern people view time from a linear vantage point, very much like a reliable Swiss time piece that they believe measures every moment with equal precision and accuracy.

However, nothing could be further from the truth, for time is neither linear nor equal. From the Indian point of view, time is cyclic and highly unequal, and it travels in cycles or circles. The archetypal cycle of time is the journey of light into darkness, followed by darkness into light. In this context it is hard for us to grasp that there are only two equal days in the yearly cycle, when darkness/light are equal—and those days are the equinoxes.  The rest of year time is not equal, and the belief that it is creates a profound sense of time sickness for those who persist in living in this state of delusion.

Further, time will not run out as is often predicted in the “End of Time” prophesies, which pervade many cultures and religions. It is rather the illusion of equal time that must end, for it is linked to disturbing practices in time management and productivity that are the bane of every working man, woman, and child.

Using the Astrology of India, known as Jyotisha (the science of light) this lecture is designed to help you end your participation in this delusional sense of time and begin to understand and participate in what is called liberated time, which goes under the name of enlightenment.

Jyotish for Ayurveda @ Ayurvedic Health Center & Wellness Shop
May 6 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Ayurveda, “the science of life” , is often studied in tandem with “Jyotish”, “the science of light”.  They are identified as sister Vedic sciences.  This class will introduce you to Jyotish, or what is commonly called Vedic astrology.

Whereas in many cultures the study of astrology is not considered a serious matter, in India Jyotish is considered a holy science as it is of the six recognized Vedangas or limbs of the Vedas; the holy bibles of Indian spirituality.  Jyotish is proclaimed to the “eye” of the Veda for its ability to perceive the human condition. 

This class will introduce you to the foundational cornerstones of Jyotish and its association with Ayurveda, as they share several elements in common.  Above all, the study of Jyotish is the study of time.  The Jyotishis of India created the original almanacs and calendars that mark the commencement of the seasons, and many calendrical festivals that permeate Indian culture.  The study of our astrological chart is the study of our personal time and the timing of the experiences that have been allotted to us in this lifetime. 

This class will teach you the doshas of the planets, and the domains of the body, and the domains of life in which they manifest—as well as the timing of manifestation.  Lastly, it is important to realize that Vedic astrology is not merely a predictive science.  Rather, it is humanistic art,  as half of the literature on Jyotisha describes the karmic effects of the planets, and the other half describes how to propitiate and mitigate those karmas through remedial measures.
