BRIAN CLARK - HEAVEN IN A WILD FLOWER

Brian Clark has been a consulting astrologer and educator for most of his adult life. He is the creator of the Astro*Synthesis distance learning program which has been shaped from his experience as an astrological educator over the past 40 years (www.astrosynthesis.com.au). Brian has his BA (Hons) and MA in Classics and Archaeology from the University of Melbourne and has been honoured with lifetime memberships from the state, national and professional astrological organizations in Australia. His books and articles have been translated into numerous languages – Brian’s most recent publications are The Family Legacy, Vocation and From the Moment We Met: The Astrology of Adult Relationships.

HEAVEN IN A WILDFLOWER.  We are all familiar with William Blake’s lines from Auguries of Innocence:

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower

Blake considered imagination a divine aspect of being human. Like many artists, imagination was his daimon, his guide to a world beyond the literal and concrete one. Imagination led him to an inner place where he saw through to a soulful world. This other world, by whatever names we might call it, has always been part of the human experience, never questioned by mystics, artists, poets or children. Tonight we will muse on how, as astrologers, we need not question our world of astrological imagination, as it is as real as the beauty of a wildflower. Brian draws from his 40 years of astrological experience to try to distil the essence at the heart of astrological practice.
