Informal Classes: What can students expect out of your class?
Donna Woodwell: In essence, astrology is the closest thing we have to having our life’s “instruction manual.” It’s an ancient art that helps you to understand your life’s purpose, and to identify the best times to actualize your full potential. In our Astrology for Beginners workshop, you’ll learn what an astrology chart is, how to understand it, and how you can begin to use its perspective to lead a fulfilling life.
IC: What are you most excited about sharing with your students?
DW: I love teaching. I love stars. And I love sharing with students the amazing vision that we live in a universe infused with meaning and purpose. Not the shallow kind of “there must be a reason” purpose, but a deeper awareness of how to stay aligned with you divine spark within, even in the most difficult times.
IC: Can you tell us a little bit about your background in your field?
DW: Some of my friends call me the “brainy astrologer.” I have a couple of master’s degrees, from UT, where I went to school to be a foreign correspondent (I didn’t realize how foreign I was going to get). I write for the largest astrology website in the world, and teach at the oldest online school of astrology. I’ve also sat on the national boards of two major astrology associations. I suppose I can officially call myself an “expert,” but it still feels odd in a field where there’s always something more to learn.
IC: What do you as the instructor learn from working with your students?
DW: Every person has an absolutely unique experience of the world. That’s the true lesson of astrology. I learn from each person I meet, both about how astrology expresses itself, and how we all learn ways to flourish. Come to class, and you’ll see exactly what I mean for yourself.
