THE FIRST North West API (UK) CONFERENCE WORKING WITH ASTROLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY
to be held on the Wirral on Saturday 5th October 2002 ...
This one day Conference will be of relevance and interest to all who use or
are interested in astrological psychology and counselling as a tool for healing.
The Conference will be a friendly gathering, open to all! It will perhaps be of special interest and practical help to those students who wonder how and where they might use and apply the astrology they are learning with API (UK) after they've qualified.
Many of the sessions will be participatory in nature, so bring your own chart along (and an overhead transparency of your chart if you have it as well) as there will be plenty of opportunities to work with it!
Cost for the day: £25.00. Includes tea, coffee, soup and bread for lunch. If you want to bring your own picnic for lunch, please do so.
Places are limited so early booking is recommended!
Booking and full details from: Joyce Hopewell, API (UK), PO Box 118, Knutsford, Cheshire WA16 8TG.

ITS NOT TO BE MISSED!
to FACE" 2002 - A FAMILY GATHERING
Students an tutors from all over the UK and further afield ( Germany and India) gathered at Buckland Hall in the Brecon Beacons from 7th-10th June for our annual residential "Face to Face" workshops. This year we ran 3 simultaneous workshops - Psychosynthesis and Astrology 1 and 2.
Meeting together as one large group at the start of the event, we shared names and got to know each other a little before moving into our own groups. The workshops were intensive but rewarding, with an experiential focus in Astrology 1, in-depth chart work in Astrology 2, and experiential exploration of our inner world in Psychosynthesis.
Warm sunny intervals between sudden showers allowed time for exploring Buckland Hall's extensive grounds. The bank of rhododendrons in full colourful bloom in the gardens was magnificent.
"It is always a pleasure to be part of a Huber School group, and I come away refreshed with enhanced knowledge" writes a student who was there. Louise and Michael Huber will be joining us next year - we hope you will too!

IRISH EYES WERE SMILING! by Joyce Hopewell
The Irish Astrological Association held their annual conference from 21st-23rd June, and I was invited to join them as a speaker.
The conference was held in Bellinter House, near Navan, Co. Meath, north of Dublin. Speakers included Jacob Schwartz and Liane Davies from the USA, as well as a balanced sprinkling of British and Irish astrologers.
The scope of topics on offer was broad and interesting. As well as my own contribution on the Huber Method ( I was honoured to be asked to give the opening and closing talks), there were sessions on Draconic, Uranian and Vedic astrology, and also AstroCartography.
Conference attendance was relatively small, but what a friendly bunch they all were! In the true spirit of what conferences should be about, there was genuine interest in the variety of different techniques shared, and an atmosphere of warm acceptance of different approaches. This was apparent on the last day of the conference when Liane Davies gave a talk entitled "Bushes and Shrubs", which was an exploration of the charts of the Bush family, and in particular that of the current President of the US, George W. Bush.
Liane had asked Jacob Schwartz to give a brief synopsis of Bush's chart using Draconic astrology, and asked me to do the same using the Huber Method. Her approach was to use Uranian astrology. As I was reading a chart of one of the delegates, I was only able to join her session at the end to present my thoughts on "Dubya's" chart, and I had not heard what either Liane or Jacob had said. However, I was given a round of applause for my brief analysis of Bush's chart, and it was interesting to learn that I had said very similar things to Jacob and Liane, but without the benefit of hearing what they had already said!
I'd not been to Ireland before and was hoping to see just a little of the countryside as well. I wasn't disappointed, as the Hill of Tara - seat of the Kings of Ireland and an impressive hillfort - was nearby. And yes, it rained a lot, so the countryside was lush and green, just as I'd expected it to be!
What a privilege it was to be invited to this pleasant and friendly gathering of astrologers, where the welcome was warm and genuine, and those Irish eyes really did smile!

Module 1 is running this autumn with 7 students. Next registration for either module will be in Jan/Feb 2002. For more information, please contact Ghislaine Adams on 01908 566362 or at email@example.com
API (UK) Diploma in Astrological Counselling
I will be holding regular tutorials for Diploma students. These tutorials will be held on Saturday afternoons (2-5pm) and occur approximately every 6
weeks. Tutorials will focus on the course lessons being studied. They will be experiential and much time will be given to reflecting on how the lesson
contents manifest on the students' charts and their friend's charts. If you are a Diploma student and are interested in attending the tutorials,
please contact Ghislaine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
