Peter Bauer is a writer and astrologer. He was raised in Swami Baba Muktananda’s Ashrams in Ganeshpuri, India and South Fallsburg, New York. He studied with the renowned Vedic Astrologer Chakrapani Ullal in Los Angeles, California and with his own father Dr. Rudolph Bauer at the Washington Center for Consciousness Studies. The Washington Center draws on many traditions, most notably Dzogchen Buddhism, Continental Phenomenology, and Kashmir Shaivism. Likewise, Peter draws on many traditions in his own work but uses them as a doorway to a purely experiential and universal outlook. Astrology and meditation are both investigations into one’s own innate awareness, the field of awareness, the field of our experience. They are an opening into the pure potential and subtle play of human consciousness. All of Peter’s readings are directed in this light.
To have one’s astrological chart read is to look at one’s karma. At its most basic level, karma is simply pure potential experience. It is not judgement or justice. It is beyond good and evil. It is neither determined nor fatalistic. The planets are the archetypal language of astrology. Through cultivating our own awareness of these archetypes, the experience of one’s own karma becomes non-dual and based in the light of awareness itself. Here, karma is not seen as deterministic, nor is it really good or bad. Astrology becomes less about prediction and more about self-awareness and healing.
Peter Bauer will be in Washington DC May 17th, 2013 and is available for readings at 1834 Swann St by appointment. The cost of a reading is $150 and can be booked by phone at 917-517-2070 or by email at [email protected]
WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF SWITCHING OUR ARCHIVES SERVER, AS THE FORMER SERVER PUT ADVERTISING ON OUR VIDEOS. PLEASE VIEW THE LATEST FEW ARCHIVES AND SEND US ANY FEEDBACK. THANKS!
We both hope and wish that the wonderful qualities of the innate field of awareness can be experienced directly and immediately in your home…And why not? The same center is within you and within us. In the Argentinean author Jorge Luis Borges’ short story, “The Aleph”, a man discovers that the center of the universe is located in his own basement. This center point gives its beholder access to the oneness of the field. The Aleph point is the center, and all the centers are completely interconnected at the subtle level of the field of consciousness. Thus meetings can be direct, unmediated and consequently, inside to inside…self to self.

The healing and psychotherapy seminars focus on the awareness field as elaborated through Dzogchen teachings and western phenomenology.
