Whether you have recently been summoned into the realm of Astrology or you are a lifelong student, there will always remain a perennial challenge when it comes to Astrology, and that is “The Art of Talking Astrology.” Reading a Chart is like learning a new language. To really know this language, we must integrate Astrology through our bodies, our minds, and our spirits. To condense it all into a word, I would call it: Kosmognosis – a process that allows the planets to speak through us, while always listening closely with Hermes’ 3rd ear to hear the wisdom of the cosmos talking from everywhere.. For those of us that know Adam Sommer, we know he talks, lives and breathes the wisdom of astrology. Join Adam, his apprentices, his clients and his fans for a long weekend retreat under the stars of Colorado, while soaking in the curative waters of the San Luis Valley.
During this retreat, you will get the opportunity to learn how to understand, read and talk Astrology, without the need to reference books or online sites. Connect with sky and ground as you explore this wondrous healing tool and discover your own unique “Art of Talking Astrology.” There will be 4 Astrology Circles in total over the weekend, led by Adam Sommer. There will also be yoga, qi gong, incredible food and plenty of time to soak in the hot springs.
We will be blessed with a Taurus Full Moon weekend with Jupiter hugging up the Sun in Scorpio. It will be deep and it will be transformative. By the end of the weekend, your relationship to Astrology will be reinvigorated and brought to the next level of its evolution.
With yoga and qi gong, titillating conversation with avid astrologers, and the sacred valley with those healing waters, it is a tri-force for a phenomenal experience. Adam’s student’s who have just graduated from The Apprenticeship Program and will be looking for practice. There will be plenty of free time for Apprentices and participants to practice readings, creating quite the environment for interstellar transmissions.
This retreat is for anyone interested in taking their practice of Astrology to the next level!
We also plan for an optional Full Moon Hike at the end of the retreat to the Great Sand Dunes.

To allow the benefits of our mineral hot springs healing water and therapies to awaken the hearts and uplift the spirits of all who come.
Many come here for the curative powers of the healing water, others for the clean peaceful energy that seems to permeate the area. One can sense joyful vibrations here, thus: Joyful Journey Hot Springs. We invite you to come and experience this wonderful sacred area sheltered beneath the towering Sangre de Cristo Mountains. At an elevation of 7700 feet on the valley floor, we enjoy cool summers and sunny winters, as well as spectacular views of the 14,000-foot peaks of the Sangre De Cristo Wilderness to the east. Joyful Journey Hot Springs Spa offers a wide variety of Spa Treatments including therapeutic and deep tissue massage, raindrop and hot stone therapy, aromatic facials, natural body wraps, reflexology treatments and more. The hot springs water is 100% artesian mineral water which comes out of the ground at over 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The pools are gravity fed and naturally kept at temperatures between 98 and 110 degrees.
Adam Sommer is an astrologer. One who is dedicated to augmenting your experience of astrology through playful words, inspiring podcasts, and hopefully, life changing readings as well. He has been practicing professionally for nearly a decade, working with clients and students all over this beautiful world. Trained and certified by Maurice Fernandez, he has used this sturdy foundation to explore many other branches of the astrology tree—like Jyotish, Evolutionary, Archetypal, and Traditional forms—but likes to find himself sitting beneath the tree, not solely hanging from the branches. By borrowing from many traditions and applying the techniques in his own life and the countless clients he has worked with, he has stumbled into what he calls, “Kosmognosis:” A direct and alive relationship with the cosmos—up there and in here—which infinitely informs the participant with the most unique strain of wisdom.
Una Viggiani is an artist, yogini, world traveler and inspired instigator. She earned a degree in Fine Art from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and her Master’s degree in Education from the University of Denver, but ultimately learned the most traveling the world on a solo journey that lasted two years and took her to 22 countries. While in Costa Rica, she discovered the Nosara Yoga Institute, which allowed her to become certified with Yoga Alliance as well as find her new calling as a yoga teacher. She originally used yoga as a way to balance the demands of teaching, but it soon became much more than that. Yoga became a way of life for Una and making the shift from art teacher to yoga teacher came naturally. Now, she combines her love of art, yoga, and travel by teaching workshops and organizing retreats all around the world. As a yoga teacher, Una teaches at a gentle, conscious pace that allows beginners to feel comfortable while offering challenging sequences and poses for all levels. Una inspires students to explore the connection between movement, breath and mindful awareness in the body. She believes that a slow conscious yoga practice can allow the physical, mental and spiritual realms to merge into one.
Chris is an astrologer (a former student of Adam’s), personal chef, teacher, and healer. He’s a Cancer who loves to cook nourishing foods for new friends, immersed in retreat, getting clearer about their path in this life. His approach to astrology and to cooking is deeply influenced by native healing traditions of the South West. From these traditions, healing is found by cultivating the kind of dynamic balance found in nature. In all his endeavors he seeks to help others find this balance in their lives by building a relationship of greater cohesiveness between all of their planets and parts, and therefore developing a stronger and clearer alignment with their own soul’s path.
