I wish to take the opportunity to thank my tutors and companion students for a very informative and enjoyable year. We happened to come from very different parts of the world and very different walks of life, so much of us made useful and complementary contributions. Of course, this was facilitated by the unique format of the course, which has been well thought out and offers value for money.

Thank you so much. It is an amazing thing you have created here…truly ground breaking.
I am also extremely excited about this VAC work. It truly is groundbreaking and is exactly what I’ve envisioned Jyotish to be all along, but needed a clearer frame for it. I’m also realizing what type of client is best for me to work with, and not surprisingly it is the coaching candidates who are the best fit. These are the clients who want more than to be “told what to do” or simply want predictions etc. made. I am much more fulfilled by building a coaching relationship with my clients than the latter. So this is truly a win/win. Thank you for formulating this and offering these wonderful tools to us. VAC is truly a remarkable frame for helping nurture change in clients and for helping the Jyotishi feel like their guidance is really of long term use.
A Vedic astrologer is indeed a time coach and learning coaching skills will be an asset to giving readings in a way to empower clients. I liked the overall course structure and think the exercises made me a better adviser/coach to my clients. Using the tools provided (in the VAC program) is helping my client in helping her deal with the act of reestablishing her life and her ambitions.
I am so excited about this module, and very much looking forward putting all of the pieces together. Brilliant, the work we are all doing together. Thank you Bill for being the creative genius behind the coaching techniques. I feel blessed.
In India, astrology is mainly predictions, with no coaching at all, and with minimal reference to free will…The next step (with VAC) is to communicate the interpretation of the astrological chart to the client in a way that adds value to his life. He can use his self-awareness to make positive changes in himself.
The VAC program has been an incredible blessing and journey of self discovery. Overall, I have learned better synthesis techniques, more effective client communication, and I see the whole picture better.

First let me state that I have really enjoyed the VAC module, as I feel it truly utilizes the gift of Jyotish, which illuminated one’s life path, without putting limitations on one’s life. The Coaching module teaches the Astrologer to elicit the strengths of an individual whilst gently guiding them, in a side-by-side dance, using the information embedded in one’s chart.
The innovative idea of combining astrology and coaching is simply brilliant in that it opens up new doors for both the astrologer and client. The continuing and deeper levels of interaction that result allows the astrologer to do full justice to the sacred science of Jyotish.
