Below are some unsolicited testimonials from participants in the Nottingham workshop:

This is a quick note to thank you for your wonderful tutorial in Nottingham… my head may still be buzzing and my calculator smoking, but it was a most informative weekend. With many astrologers today purporting to know about the predictive techniques the ancients and medieval astrologers practiced, it quickly became apparent that you know your subject!! – PCB

Thank you once again for such an inspiring and interesting weekend – I spent all of Tuesday going through your notes and your book again and everything fell into place really well! – Angela Cornish

Let me thank you again for your excellent lectures. Having taught at University in UK it was such a pleasure to listen to someone who was absolute master of his subject, and could also convey it in simple terms to the audience. – Hedley Paul Spargo
