Science of Light Course 1

In this course:

  • 16 videos of 2011 class
  • Audio Recordings of 2011 class
  • Audio recordings of 2010 class
  • Coaching and Live Practicum
  • Research Project

The goal is to help you get the information so that you understand it, not just to sell you a class. In this way, we present multiple teachings on the same subject to insure the information is heard more than once and really gets into you so it can be utilized.  It is suggested to first read the chapter, then watch the video. After that you can re-listen to the audios while you are driving or doing other activities so that you can get the things you might have missed the first time through.  There are two recordings (from different years). Often people like to listen to the information again after going through the entire course. You will be reading charts after the course, and therefore listening from a new place. With this in mind all this is offered with each class.

A full refund will be granted if students are not happy within 15 days of purchase. After this time the course is non-refundable.

These fees include a coach looking at homework and answering questions which pertain to the material presented as well as the final practicum with Freedom. Students are responsible to stay on schedule and finish the program within a 1 year period.

For those that can’t finish the course in 1 year, there is an additional $120 fee to complete the course and to have Freedom guide them in the final practicum.

Tuition Cost: $1008


Freedom Cole has taught Vedic astrology to beginners for many years and has developed an effective format. Each lesson in the course goes with a chapter from his book, Science of Light (SOL). The book is based on an ancient astrological text, and it is geared to give the student a traditional understanding of Vedic Astrology and to link the individual with the ancient texts of the sages of India.

The first class/video is the first chapter of the book. The first chapter gives a general overview of the entire system and how it works. Then each chapter/class has a focus of its own, going deep into the various parts of the astrological system. Each builds on the other and nothing is random (though it may seem that way for a beginner). The final chapters bring everything together for the practical application of reading a chart.

This video is the free introductory class that Freedom gives the night before the course begins. He discusses who he is, his teachers and the tradition. The course material is discussed and a small lesson is given about calculating the time of Moonrise (from the end of chapter one).


After logging in and paying the fees, one can begin watching the classes. Freedom’s assistant will arrange a meeting with you to discuss your goals with the course. Each year, Freedom and assistant advanced students will take a group through the level one course together. Those who purchase the course can begin studying the material any time and then can also join the group when everyone goes through the material together. Presently, course one meets Thursday nights 6-8pm Pacific Time, and course two meets Wednesday 6-8pm Pacific Time.



Science of Light Audio 2011


Science of Light Audio 2010


The 2010 audio files are not that good, but it repeats the information with some variation to allow listening a 2nd or 3rd time to be more interesting.

Many people find they need to listen to the SOL Course 1 more than once. I advise listening to the whole course all the way through and doing the assignments as they are given. The final chapter on reading a chart shows all the areas that need deeper study and development. Then one can listen to the course a second time from a new perspective. Audio recordings are good for the second time through. There are many levels within each lesson and a student will get a different perspective each time. This has been the best method for many students in the past.

    “From all quarters must be pieced together the design by which all things are ordered. However, all this in due order shall I explain hereafter; now it is enough to teach the facts though their uses be not known, so that, when you have acquired confidence in your grasp of the elements, you will be thus able by simple reasoning to mark the complete pattern, and my poem can fittingly pass on from details and deal with the whole. Children who have not yet begun their lessons are first shown the shape and name of a letter, and then its value is explained: then a syllable is formed by the linking of letters; next comes the building up of a word by reading its component syllables; afterwards the meaning of expressions and the rules of grammar are taught, and then verses come into being and rise up on feet of their own. To reach the final goal it is important to have mastered each of the earlier steps, for unless these are firmly based upon underlying principles, instruction, as teachers too hurriedly expound their precepts out of order, will be ill-arranged and prove labour vainly spent. Thus as I wing my way in song throughout the whole universe and, entuning them to the Muses’ rhythm, sing of fates drawn from deep-seated darkness and summon to my art the power by which the divine (deus) rules, I too must by degrees win credence and assign each matter to its correct step, so that, when all the parts are grasped with sure understanding, they may be applied to their proper uses.”

    (translation from Latin by G.P. Goold, Manilius Astronomica, Harvard University Press, 1977.)
