  1. Chart Reading, Consultation & Teaching Intensive


    This was an enormously helpful and valuable course, with many “a-ha’s” and deeper insights into the Art & Science of Vedic Astrology. An expansive and dynamic drill-down into key concepts of the pervasive importance of the Ascendant; Gunas, Gender, Elements ; as well as clear, powerful methods to support teaching the material to others. Fresh, potent understandings of my own and others’ charts kept popping into my mind as a result of the teaching and case studies Sam presented.

  2. Review


    Sadasiva’s classes always set the standard of excellence. During the course I had so many “lightbulb” moments, when I finished the course I felt truly empowered to teach with confidence.
    In this class he streamlines the important techniques to take your chart reading abilities to the next level, deal with clients skillfully, and empower you to teach.
    Get it, I can’t recommend it enough!

  3. Illuminationđź’«Integration


    Very grateful to have continued opportunity to learn with my teacher Sam Sadasiva Geppi. Making the weekend intensives available through online recordings brings a great classroom experience to those unable to travel. It’s the next best thing to being present live! Continue your personal growth and professional gifts with this course, and change the way you deliver this life changing science to your clients and communities.

  4. Chart Reading, Consultation and Teaching Intensive


    Vedic astrology is a complex, layered and expansive system that Sam Geppi breaks down for his students and helps brings the many concepts into a sharper focus. My desire to move forward and share this ancient knowledge with others is thick with information, specifics and truth passed down from Sam – evidenced by what is shared in this intensive (and others).

    Whether you plan on teaching or not, this is next level integration – and a way to imprint and improve even more with respect to all aspects of chart reading, professional consultations as well as teaching. If you decide to move forward with any of Sam’s classes, you can be confident what you are learning has a very good explanation and is grown from truth.

    So grateful for the teachings!

  5. :)


    It was a great weekend learning with Sam and sharing with other students. I have been a student almost my whole life and I personally enjoy and prefer to seat in a real classroom, with a teacher in front and be able to feel the energy that is created in this type of enviroment. It was a very practical experiece, where we could be able to integrate the subjects we have been studying and also learn how this topics could be implemented in a real situation like giving a consultation to a client or imparting a class to an auditorium.

  6. 5

    I gained a lot of insight from this class, like how to integrate and convey all the material that I already know. Great discussions of how to go into more depth, such as analyzing the 4 elements in a chart. Advice on how to handle clients’ concerns. Thank you, Sam, for sharing decades-worth of insights!

  7. Deep Dive Intensive into Your Skills


    As always, Sam’s courses take you into the fine details of the chart and this course was no different. It was an excellent foray into the blending of all the finer details in a reading. No matter how many charts and readings you have done, you can always polish your skills and go deeper to improve your process to bring out more of all the depth of the chart through: the elements, modalities, size of the sign, feet, gender, gunas, qualities of the signs, etc. In this class we had adequate time and practice to hone those skills of interweaving greater refinement into a chart. This was an outstanding weekend of knowledge. You can’t enjoy the dept of these programs if you think that you have “already got it.” There’s so much more to get! I highly recommend this course. There’s always a point in the course where you open up to a broader perspective because of Sam’s approach to teaching and his use of mind-share from the group. It’s about how the group dynamic takes that to the next level. I always learn something new every time…and if you know what’s good for you, then you will too!

  8. Just what you need if you are feeling rusty in your readings


    I have been studying astrology with Sam Geppi for over 7 years. During this time, I have done consultations, mentored other students, tutored and taught astrology.
    This course put together by Sam is invaluable to bring everyone back to hard-core basics that always work during consultation and teaching events. Sam beautifully taught about how to deliver the consultation to people who are predominantly ruled by a particular element, sign, masculine/feminine qualities, amongst other factors. He also laid a foundation for aspiring teachers of astrology. The greatest advantage with Sam is that he has tested everything out himself, failed several times and then has distilled things that truly work. He wants you to learn from his mistakes. That’s why this course is so invaluable. Sam also discusses his core principles and ethics for his astrology practice. I also attended this course live in San Diego – and will do so again in a heartbeat.

  9. I loved this course!!


    First of all, I have to say that Sam is all around an amazing teacher- he truly believes in his students and motivates them to believe in themselves too, and a large part of this is due to the seamless, simple and deep framework he provides that everyone can apply if they have the determination and desire. This class was an example of just that, giving basic and in depth framework about key elements in a chart, how to read them, explain them to a client, and also how to teach them to others.

    This class is truly comprehensive and even after 3 years of ongoing chart readings, I left feeling more comfortable and confident in my skills and my ability to read, understand and explain a chart to both my one and one clients and also future students.

    As always, thank so much Sam for your guidance, devotion, passion and wisdom!

  10. 5

    After taking this course, I feel confident that I can not only do a meaningful reading but also share this sacred knowledge with others in a way that’s accessible. Sam reinforces core principles and introduces new ways to use those principles so you understand how to speak a person’s language when doing a reading/consultation.

    You’ll also learn strategies for effective teaching. As you’ll find in this course, there is much more to teaching than knowing a subject well. Sam has an intuitive understanding of where his students are and he knows how to meet them there and elevate their understanding, as all great teachers do.

    You’ll learn from both the wealth of knowledge he shares and from seeing him at work — taking our questions, clearing away any confusion, and taking us to the deeper layers of what we were saying. He brings depth, wisdom, and such love and care to his work and his students.

  11. sam always brings the best!


    i’ve been studying with sam for several years, through his yearlong courses, his archived classes, & the weekend zoom intensives. i have always been incredibly grateful for his deep scholarly dive & his ability to disseminate vedic wisdom & bring his own special sauce to that wisdom. it was a treat & huge inspiration to be able to FINALLY study live with him, to get the direct transmission, to share that experience in satsang, to speak the language of jyotish with fellow speakers, to learn from my colleagues as well as from sam. you know sam always brings the best to his courses, but being face to face with your teacher, with sam, is an incomparable experience. i can’t wait for september. see you there!

  12. Grateful for the Great Work Sam


    This is a clear and wonderful opportunity for me, and many of us, to really become active in the world with Jyotish. I feel the gratitude for all your years of work and diligence, obviously those things are easier when you are truly passionate about it as you mentioned. Also thankful for the Vedic people themselves for holding on to this science in such a high standard and also putting in the work to teach it to us who speak a different language and belong to a different world history and culture.

  13. Ready to Teach


    I’ve been a student of Sam’s for almost 5 years now and after taking this course I’m feeling confident that I can teach this material at a high level and share the light of Jyotish with the world.

  14. Clarity


    I know I will be studying Jyotish for the rest of my life, so these intensives really give me the focus and repetition I need to retain all of this content and do so methodologically. Sam’s a master, and doing this course up close and personal with him gave me the clarity and confidence I need to begin teaching this sacred science that I love so much.

  15. Brilliant


    After taking level 1 certification, it was fantastic to really apply the knowledge real-time with a group of like minded professionals. Sam’s approach to teaching allows even the novice to quickly understand the basic principles and unlock ways of truly helping people understand the beauty of astrology.

  16. Change Your Way of Thinking!


    I attended more than a dozen of Sadasiva’s courses and I know that his way of teaching can change your life. ‘Level 1’ is the real root knowledge of Jyotish and this course, ‘Reading, Consultation&Teaching Intensive’ is designed to give the most integrative and precise information one can ever achieve, with all the tactics and useful strategies generously forwarded by Sadasiva.
    It was, as always, an excellent experience overall.
