Jen Gouvea 1976-2014

PSA honors Jen’s passion for opening accessibility to astrological knowledge for historically marginalized and disenfranchised groups. Her top priority was to share widely the tools of astrology, flower essence, and art-based healing practices. Her practice was dedicated to focus on providing broad access and quality metaphysical education for new astrologers with limited economic resources. Funds from her estate provided seed funding for the Program we offer today. Jen bequeathed her collection of astrology texts and flower essences books, and they form the basis of PSA’s on-site Engaged Heart Library (named for Jen’s professional practice).
