The Ancient Greek aphorism “know thyself” is one of the Delphic maxims and was the first of three maxims inscribed in the forecourt of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, according to the Greek writer Pausania (Wikipedia)
BREAKING NEWS – A CHANGE TO SUMMER SCHOOL SCHEDULE
1 June – DISCOVERING ASTROLOGY
8 of 10 Places Available
All gone, for the whole season! As from 1 May Greece no longer requires you to produce proof of vaccination, or a negative PCR test or the tedious PLF (Passenger Location Form). Hurray. There is no paperwork required at all for your return journey into the UK either, you just fly in and out as normal.
DISCOVERING ASTROLOGY – WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
So the first week of June is now an astrology week which I’ll be teaching along with Elisabeth Brooke. Flights in on Wed 1 June, within 24 hours of the Gemini New Moon, course starts in the morning of Thursday 2 June under the auspices of a Stationary Direct Mercury.
Includes working on your own chart so you’ll need to let me have your data in advance – your date and place of birth, and time of birth as accurately as possible.
This is an intensive course, designed to teach you the fascinating A to Z of horoscopy. Even if you’re new to astrology, by the end of the week you will understand how astrological craft really works, how to find your way around a horoscope, understand more about your psychological blueprint, your celestial DNA, your past (retrodiction) and be taking your first steps in prediction.
The course material includes –
- Sun signs, Houses, Planetary symbolism and The Ascendant (rising sign)
- Aspects and Aspect patterns (the relationship between the planets in a horoscope)
- Lunations – New & Full Moons, Eclipses
- Your horoscope is you, you are your horoscope – learn about how it reflects your nature and your life
- Find out what’s what and who’s who in your chart – all your relationships are in there
- Cycles and Transits, Returns, first steps in prediction, using the Ephemerides
- Elisabeth will be including a session on her particular area of expertise – the signs and planets in connection to herbs, health and temperament
There are direct flights into our local airport Preveza (PVK) from Gatwick – Stansted -Bristol – Birmingham – Manchester
There is a flight from Edinburgh – via Gatwick on the way out, via Milan on the way back
Flights are with Easy Jet, Jet2 or TUI. See Skyscanner to keep track of the latest prices and choices, and to see how you can mix and match times or airlines to get the best combination. Here’s the link –
If you do flight only then I book your room, and transfers are also arranged by me by pre-booked taxi. This means that students share a taxi and the cost. Transfer time from airport to Nidri is a direct journey of just 45 mins, no ferries involved.
The other option is to book a package – such as the lovely Demetra Studios with Olympic Holidays, link below. If you choose a package it’s best NOT to book the transfer option as they charge per person, not per taxi, and can end up being three times more expensive – ie 60 Euros each instead of shared between 2 or 3 people.
Package or flight only, just let me know your preference but basically all you have to do is get on the plane and leave the rest to me!
Rooms or studios on the beach, 50 – 80 Euros a night depending on your choice and availability.
COURSE HOURS & FEE
The week comprises of four study days (Thurs/Fri & Sun/Mon) and the rest of the time is your own to enjoy the beach, explore the island etc. Group meals are organized for every evening, these are optional but it means that you never have to be alone unless you wish to be.
No increase in course fees this year, all courses are £345.00. This includes the taxi service to and from my house on the four study days and all course material, no hidden extras. We order in lunch which comes to between 5 and 10 Euros a head depending on your choice.

Testimonials from September 2021 – CARDS ON THE TABLE – with JOANNA
In one word – “Fantastic”. For me the course content was ideal and I thoroughly enjoyed every session. I definitely want to come back!
Wonderful and very affirming. It was a pleasure to attend these classes. The teaching was incisive, thorough and well thought through. I enjoyed every moment – thank you!
Really enjoyed the course, great content and put a lot into context for me. Loved everything about this week – our working area, the group, the whole experience, the simplicity of how you read the cards – definitely expanded my knowledge which was my aim, and would recommend.
A great space to come together with like minded people and share more than just knowledge, in beautiful sunny surroundings. Joanna is very knowledgeable and a great teacher, makes learning both effective and enjoyable.
I’ve been interested in the Tarot for some time but felt in need of a fresh start. This course exceeded all of my expectations, Joanna is a great teacher and a wonderful hostess and I will certainly visit again to learn more.
I loved every minute of this course. It was a great group. Joanna is a brilliant teacher and very generous with her time and knowledge. I was enthused by her depth of wisdom and I now feel inspired to use the Tarot in my work.
This course turned out to be so much more than I expected! A wonderful mix of learning, self discovery, fun and friendship. I’ve been completely blown away by how true the readings have been and it’s been a lovely week.
I’ve been coming to Jo’s courses for several years now, always enjoyable and Jo has a talent for explaining things in simple terms. Nothing is a problem. I always learn something new and look forward to taking my next tarot steps.
