Born and raised in Zürich, Switzerland, Laurence began to study astrology at the age of sixteen and this has remained his passion for forty years. He is a full-time professional astrologer/consultant and specializes in helping his clients understand their deeper purpose and their life's calling - especially in these challenging times.
A force in the ongoing movement to merge astrology with depth psychology, his approach is practical and full of metaphor and Jungian insight.
He has lectured internationally and conducted workshops at the Globe Theatre in London where he blended Shakespeare and Astrology. At the Cycles & Symbols Conference in California, he lectured on Venus in America (co-presented with his father James Hillman). He has also taught at Jean Houston's Mystery School, at Pacifica Graduate Institute, in Findhorn, and he has been a repeated guest lecturer at Washington University in St. Louis. He has taught small study groups and private students across the US.
He is the author of Planets in Play - How to Reimagine Your Life Through the Language of Astrology and the co-author of Alignments - How to Live in Harmony with the Universe.
Laurence holds an MBA, an MCM (Masters in Construction Management), as well as a degree in Architecture. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Leadership Psychology at Meridian University.
He has traveled extensively in more than forty countries and is fluent in five languages.
Laurence lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with his wife Cindy.
