Dorset Vermont is a town on the northern border of Bennington County, in the southwestern region of Vermont. Dorset is noted as home to America's oldest marble quarry, and as the birth place of Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill W. The Bill Wilson House and the Griffith Library can be found in East Dorset. Marble from the East Dorset quarry was provided for the New York Public Library Main Branch building in New York City.
Today, Dorset is primarily known as a summer place, with the Dorset Theatre Festival as one of Dorset's most well-known attractions. There is still plenty of activity during the winter, being about 30min to Bromley Mountain and only 15min to the Manchester shopping.
Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Cathy Walker to lead this four-part astrology workshop. A person’s birth chart is a map of the planetary positions at the time and place of their birth. It is a rich living statement of possibilities, full of insights, guidelines and warnings, and its knowledge points the way to a thriving, satisfying life. In this four-week course we will learn the alphabet of astrology, consisting of signs, planets, and houses, and how to interpret the information they hold. We will look at the history of western astrology, its current use, the structure of a chart, and the basic methods of chart analysis. We’ll explore the ethics and art of astrological readings. Using your own birth chart, you’ll begin to develop a fluency with astrological language. There will be handouts and worksheets provided, as well as some light homework. Class will meet Thursdays, February 28, March 7, 14, 21. Preregistration is required and costs $60 for the four-session course.
