PATRICIA BECHDOLT, ThD.
By way of background, I earned a doctorate in Theology and Spiritual Healing with an emphasis in Energy Medicine and Medical Intuition at Holos University, where I was a professor (Evolutionary Astrology) from 2006 - 2020.
My doctoral studies included coursework with medical intuitive and author Caroline Myss, and energy medicine pioneer Dr. Norm Shealy, founder of the American Holistic Medical Association.
I am a certified Master Astrologer through the apprenticeship program of author and astrologer Steven Forrest. I have taught workshops throughout the United States, and have a Los Angeles-based practice with clients worldwide.
After decades of astrological study and 20 years working with clients, I can easily say that I am more in awe of astrology than I was when I began. I came to astrology as a curious client, and left that first reading as a ready student.
Like my teachers, and theirs, I continue to see things in my astrological chart that I've never noticed or considered before, always (miraculously, mysteriously) coinciding with my readiness to know those parts of myself. I am forever fascinated by how such a simple document can so elegantly communicate the depth and complexities of a human life through time. The age-old principle, as above, so below, is so assuringly constant.
I felt known and understood in a way I had never experienced, and I wanted to know more. That desire has never left me.
My dissertation, entitled The Effects of Astrological Consultation on the Sense of Life Purpose and Meaning in Life in Adults, achieved statistically significant results in a quantitative research study with ninety participants.
