In November of this year the inaugural Northwest Astrology and Tarot Salon will be held at the Breitenbush Conference Center, near Detroit, OR. (More information about the Salon can be found here – nwsalon.com .) I would like to introduce you to Dr. Robert Volkmann, one of the Conversation Leaders for this event.
Dr. Volkmann trained as a Medical Doctor in Family Practice. For several years his focus was Obstetrics, here he delivered almost 2,000 babies. Following this he did general Family Practice, with an emphasis on counseling. These were generally single visits, but occasionally this involved several visits, or even long term counseling.
Concurrent with Dr. Volkmann’s Medical Practice was his personal practice in Meditation, where he did extensive travelling in the Inner Worlds that was self-healing, educational, and an extensive exploration of the subconscious and some of the higher states of consciousness. Much of his interest in counseling is in helping people become more self-aware, and to give them tools to work with.
His Medical Practice, his daily personal life, and his night life of dreams were all an extension of or complimentary to his Meditation Practice, though it might be said in reverse, his Meditation Practice was a tool to help his Medical Practice …
Dr. Volkmann kept a journal of his dreams and meditations, a journal that started off at about 150 pages a year in 1985, and is closer to 400 pages a year now.
In his own words, he describes himself as “ Being a midwife for the birthing of Love & Consciousness in people via a wide variety of methods and experiences.”
I would like to share a blog that Toni wrote about her journey with Dr. Volkmann – http://tonigilbert.com/blog/2014/01/robert-volkmann-and-me/.
I look forward to Dr. Volkmann’s input in Breitenbush, and thank him for taking the time to be there for this inaugural event. The worlds of both Astrology and Tarot will be opened up to an unimaginable degree. I am already amazed at what is going to happen!
