In the growing tide of globalization, a new astrological approach is needed to work with people internationally. A Vedic astrologer must become culturally competent to achieve good results with clients around the world. Some of the greater values of Vedic Astrology Coaching ™ (VAC™) are now being taught by the American College of Vedic Astrology™ (ACVA), a non-profit educational organization founded to spread the principles and practices of Vedic astrology around the world. With increased telecommunications, the internet, software applications, and social media, astrological consultations have changed domains from interactions in local areas to serving the needs of clients across the world's borders. People are becoming global. People are still striving to maintain the integrity of their own cultures, but are expanding now to be something more…. citizens of the world. As such, there is a need for astrologers to be more inclusive of other cultural heritages. For astrological consultations to remain relevant, astrologers must comprehend the implications of cultural diversity.

 The Value of VAC

Pioneering Reflections by VAC Learners ...

“I personally think learning how to work in the coaching framework--in which the coaching process assumes center stage as opposed to either participant--is an extremely important factor in utilizing coaching as a method to achieve outcomes. The coaching process can expose underlying concerns (although this is not therapy, and should not be substituted for therapy), and can help participant achieve goals by the coach's active listening, pertinent feedback, empathy, and suggestions that can identify blocks and strategies to achieve goals. When combined with the elements of Vedic astrology--chart analysis, dasas, transits, muhurtha--it can become an extremely powerful fulfillment tool.” G.G.

“This week I was able to practice quite a few sessions using the VAC model and I am really seeing the value in approaching Jyotish this way. I have also noticed how my clients are responding quite differently, meaning they seem to leave with a more empowered outlook of the issue they were focusing on. I am loving this approach and even though at first it was difficult not to direct and mentor, I am finding that the coaching model allows me to surrender more as well. It seems that this model also allows the Divine grace to flow more freely between two human beings who are walking side by side with Love, Patience, and encouragement. Thank you for the inspiring module. Om” K.K.

“I've really enjoyed this module. Coaching is an amazing process. I have a lot of work to do in developing the technique ... however .. my thought process is already there. Coaching is an outlet to really *do* something with astrology. When I look at the chart from a coaching perspective, it really makes sense! Even Dasa and gochara seem to make more sense to me.” A.P.
