There are two interactive programs which follow through the two Volumes of Science of Light. Each chapter has video, audio and practice exercises. Students have weekly online meetings where they have support, ask questions and are tested on the applications of principles and techniques they have learned.

Course 1 teaches basic principles which allow a student to successfully read a Vedic Astrology chart. Students are introduced to the Sanskrit Alphabet and pronunciation.

Course 2 gives firmness to one’s astrology practice by teaching the deeper foundations, and more advanced techniques.

I have studied both Medieval Western Astrology and Jyotish from other CVA instructors. This class far surpassed my expectations as someone who was eager to learn genuine Vedic Astrology and be able to move toward a proficiency in actively reading charts. The videos in the course as well as the audio are incredibly instructive, expanding and extrapolating upon the information in Freedom Cole’s Science of Light Vol. 1. There are many practices taught in the course that really round one out, such as Mantra practice, Nyasa, and Meditation. Freedom is also extremely hands on, giving near-weekly online conference sessions making sure that you are grasping and growing with the material. His manner is precise and warm, a demeanor fit for an instructor. I would recommend this course to both those who are beginners and those already proficient in Jyotish. By engaging with this material, you will be transformed.

I have taken a lot of courses both in Jyotisha and other related disciplines in my life, and I have to say that Freedom’s courses are one of the best that I have come across out there today, for both beginners and even long time students who may have missed what studying in a tradition can offer. He combines the deep understanding you can only get from studying with a proper lineage guru of the subject, mixed with a very scholarly approach open to your questions, which he is able to deliver in a clear, organized, and concise method bringing you into this study one step at a time. If you are hesitating to approach this course for whatever reason, as I did for a while, I would encourage you to wait no more as many of your questions about how Jyotisha actually works according to Parasara will likely be found within if you devote yourself to the knowledge and open you up for more advanced studies in the subject.
