      Hi Jamie,
      Right now I am not offering group class sessions. If you would like to study privately with me we can arrange that. We can use skype or phone whichever is best for you. Our sessions will be recorded for your future use. Let me know what subjects you might be interested in and what you would like to focus on. Also, please give me an indication of your level of astrological knowledge. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you!
