What’s your outlook for the next year?  For me, I’ve taken a deep plunge with something I’ve been putting off for what seems a lifetime.  I’ve made the commitment to live a more creative life both on canvas and in the field of divination. By this I mean that I’ve committed to making a piece of art that ties in with divination on a weekly basis.  My hope is that by the end of 2015 I will have merged body, mind, heart and spirit with the two outlets and as a result my life will become an expression of that experience.

For years I’ve put creativity or artistic expression on the back burner.  It was always something I would get to later or whenever time permitted.  I realize now that that was never going to happen unless I made room for it. Thankfully, I have the support needed to begin this journey on a powerful note and if interested, you can too.

January 14th, 2015 kicks off the five week teleseminar series, Embodied Divination which is organized and co-taught by James Wells and includes guest presenters, Nancy Antenucci, Mellissae Lucia, Andrew McGregor and myself. Together we will inspire and support you in aligning with your authentic, creative mission and much more for 2015 and beyond. I’ll be teaching the first class in the series and in addition offering a reading to all participants who sign on.  Read the complete class description below and join us in entering 2015 with the tools that build a meaningful existence.  It’s time!

Following is my interview with James about the series plus a more detailed version of the spread I offer in this video.

 


 

ANATOMY OF INTENTION SPREAD

In the above interview I suggest you ask four questions for each step in the following divination:

1. What is the literal definition of the object that I am focused on?

2. What does the object symbolize?

3. What does it stand for in my life or current situation?

4. How can I become an expression or vehicle for the information I’ve garnered?

The following spread is an extension of the two steps I describe in the interview with James. And while just about any divination system works with this spread, using the objects from our environment in place of cards or charms, work just as well.

ABOVE & BELOW

1.  What is above you?  This is what you are becoming conscious of.

1. What’s at your feet? This will help you remain grounded and true to your path.

BEHIND YOU

1. What is behind your left hand? This is what you are letting go of.

2. What is behind your shoulders?  This is a burden that you are ready to unload.

3. What is behind your head?  These are the thoughts that you are ready to put behind you.

IN FRONT OF YOU

1. What is in front of your right hand? This is what you are ready to receive.

2. What is in front of your heart? This is what you are ready to love.

3. What is in front of your vision? This is what wants your focus.

Embodied Divination:

A Sacred Pilgrimage to Activate Your Creative Gifts

A Teleseminar Series with Five of Today’s Deepest Divinatory Practitioners:

Nancy Antenucci, Mellissae Lucia, Andrew McGregor, Carrie Paris, and James Wells

embodied divination

January 14 – February 11, 2015

We’re delighted and honoured to announce Embodied Divination, a five-week experience that will inspire and support you to remember and live out your naturally creative, high-frequency state of being. The innovative processes presented on these calls are cutting-edge methods of employing symbolic tools such as the tarot, oracle cards, and casting charms to help you focus on your gifts, tune in to your resources, overcome challenges, achieve meaningful goals, and become the vibrant, life-sustaining presence in our world that you always intended to be.

Join James, Carrie, Andrew, Mellissae, and Nancy on five consecutive Wednesdays at 8 p.m. Eastern Time (5 p.m. Pacific, 6 p.m. Mountain, 7 p.m. Central) for a journey that makes ancient wisdom ways relevant to the 21st century.

What will you experience in the five sessions? Read on!

Call #1 (January 14)

DIVINE SOLUTIONS: ACTIVATING YOUR SOUL-SIGHT with Carrie Paris

What you seek is seeking you.    —Rumi

I believe that you and I are seeking each other. Our combined paths are looking for a shared experience that will promote the evolution of our existence. What I bring to the experience is a practice called Divine Soulutions.  This divination technique adopts the wisdom of tarot to activate Soul-Sight— a method for recognizing the signs that are pursuing you. Please join me on this divine quest so you may see the signs inside the everyday that point the way to your unique, yet universal mission. All levels encouraged.

Call #2 (January 21)

LIFE: THE ULTIMATE CREATIVE PROJECT with James Wells

You can drift through your existence and die full of regrets or you can create your life consciously to evolve into the person you always intended to be. The choice is yours. Combining the logical sequence of the tarot suits with your imaginative response to the card symbols is a powerful way to examine and map out every aspect of your life: body, emotion, mind, spirit, resources, and relationships. By making James’ process a regular personal practice, you will embody wholeness and enrich your community and our world with your unique presence and gifts. Will you do it?

Call #3 (January 28)

MEETING YOUR DESTINY SELF with Nancy Antenucci

Your destiny unfolds as you read these words. Up until now you may have been shown glimmers and signs of yourself living fearlessly. Go beyond the wishes and imagination to commit to the true magic of this life, your Destiny Self who is the one at the end of your life that has tried all that s/he so desired.  Nancy will provide helpful road posts for creating a ritual in which you will meet, commit and start to live without restriction. We will use tarot cards, or divination tool of your preference, as soul prompts to illuminate this process. If desired afterwards, there will be a personal email exchange about your ritual to further support your Creative Destiny.

Call #4 (February 4)

A MEDICINE WALK WITH YOUR MUSES with Mellissae Lucia

Where does creative inspiration come from and how can you work more consciously with this mysterious source to earth your visions? Using your favorite divination deck, we will embark on a sacred pilgrimage to your Muses, court the wisdom of these essential guardians and guides, and unlock your creative potential. This rich session is rooted in Mellissae’s own seven-year Medicine Walk that culminated in the wilds of the New Mexico desert.

Call #5 (February 11)

WHERE THERE IS FEAR THERE IS POWER! with Andrew McGregor

When we start to embody our full creative self, it can often bring up fears. These fears can discourage us from doing the work we feel called to make. However, as we acknowledge them and give them an invitation to take part in our work, they can drive our efforts forward. By using Andrew’s process you will be able to get beyond what is holding you back in your projects and creativity. By learning to acknowledge and integrate fears in this manner, you will be able to turn them from obstacles to tireless allies.

 

*** In addition to each live experience, you will receive recordings of all the sessions so you can glean fresh perspectives every time you revisit them. Every call will also come with helpful PDF handouts so you can follow along and perform the activities with ease.

Click here to listen to Karen Krebser give tips and techniques for divining with the ancestors.

Samhain, a pre-Christian Gaelic festival observed between the sunsets of October 31st and November 1st, is viewed as a liminal time. It marks the end of the harvest seasons while taking into account the start of winter.  This in between state is seen as a threshold period where the cosmic veil between the living and dead is at its thinnest, thus allowing sightings and communication with the departed more available.

Beginning October 25th, diviner Karen Krebser and I will launch the Samhain Series, a set of casting sheets that open the portal to ancestral awareness and communication. We will also be offering some extra divine treats along the way.

Until then, dear diviner, we look forward to having you join us for this very special series.

Samhain Series

 

3 cups

AUGUST  2  &  3,  2014

My cup runneth over! I am very excited to be able to co-teach with one of my favorite diviners, Dr. Yoav Ben-Dov.  Yoav will be visiting from Israel to share his expertise and unique insights on Tarot, Therapy Card Reading, and so much more.  There will be two opportunities for you to learn Yoav’s divining techniques that many in the tarot community are talking about. Check out the following fliers for a rare chance to meet Yoav and divine in a new light.  Feel free to share this information with your community. We would love to see you!

 

Workshop  1 

AUGUST  2,  2014

Join Yoav for his unique presentation on Therapy Card Reading (TCR)

 

TCR is not limited to a particular deck. It can be used with Tarot cards, oracle cards, or even personal picture sets. It is amazingly efficient in bringing out subconscious contents, expressing hidden desires and strengths, tapping unknown potentials and suggesting creative solutions to specific problems.

 

TCR can be used in a personal encounter or in a group. It is especially relevant in a professional or organizational setting, where Tarot cards may be “too mystical”. Thus, its target audience is much wider than the Tarot.

 

For more details on how TCR works visit here.

Workshop  2

August  3,  2014

 

Join Yoav & Carrie for for a day of divining outside of the box

 

This is your opportunity to join in a unique collaboration between two leading tarot figures, Dr. Yoav Ben-Dov (Israel) and Carrie Paris (Europe/USA) as we explore the full potential of authentic tarot illustrations beautifully featured in Yoav’s CBD Tarot de Marseille, a faithful reproduction of the traditional deck and pinnacle of 4 centuries of collective work by Europe’s finest tarot masters.  In addition will be the launch of Carrie’s Magpie Oracle II: The Keepsake Box, a new collection oracle for charm casting and divining outside of the box.

 

In this workshop we will learn to unleash the potential of the cards by moving away from fixed interpretations and directly experience the magic housed in tarot illustrations.

 

Discover how collection oracles lead us out of assigned esoteric systems and open the door to spontaneity, the home of authentic divining .

 

Learn the powerful technique of “card reflections”, a way to encounter the cards as personal guides that take you forward in life.

 

All levels encouraged.  A limited supply of the CBD Tarot de Marseille and Magpie Oracle II will be available.

Yoav & Carrie

Yoav Ben-Dov studied physics and philosophy of science in Tel Aviv University, authored the first tarot book in Hebrew, and did his doctorate in Paris-13 University on the philosophy of quantum mechanics. Following two decades of teaching physics and philosophy in several schools and universities, Yoav restored and published CBD Tarot de Marseille, and recently published the book, Tarot- The Open Reading.

Carrie Paris was in the first class to receive a Masters in the Cultural Study of Cosmology and Divination from the University of Kent, UK. She is co-creator of the award winning Lenormand Revolution deck and iOS app and Lenormand Loadestones. Her fascination with collection oracles inspired the creation of the Magpie Oracle, a way of casting shiny objects for a bright future. Carrie’s Magpie Oracle II: The Keepsake Box, inspires diviners of all levels to enter accurate readings through the door of divine play.

 

Are you looking for a way to spring out of this bitterly cold winter?  A great solution is to pack your bags and head to New York where you can connect with hundreds of diviners at the annual Readers Studio.

“Readers Studio is a magical place, a rich and multi-layered community that comes together each year for three intense and enchanted days of sharing, passionate teaching and learning, socializing and all things Tarot.”

I’ll be unveiling two new products at this fun filled event so please come by, say hello, and divine by the fire!

THE READERS STUDIO
April 25 – 27, 2014
LaGuardia Marriott Hotel, New York

RS14_Poster_360x466

Following Readers Studio I will be offering a very special Magpie Oracle workshop and readings at the one and only Boston Tearoom on May 3rd in Ferndale, Michigan.  I love teaching this workshop as the divining is user friendly and the take-away immediate and am thrilled to have this opportunity to offer it at this landmark location.  All levels are encouraged and invited.

“The Boston Tea Room has been providing award-winning psychic services for over 30 years. Carole Navarre, and her daughters Heatherleigh and Vanessa, are committed to carrying on the family legacy of excellent customer service and a welcoming and meaningful experience for every single visitor to our two shops. Each shop offers a unique atmosphere, character, and staff, but both provide the same award-winning blend of products and services that has made Boston Tea Room the place to serve all your metaphysical needs for decades.”

I’d love to see you there!

I’m thrilled to announce that the Magpie Oracle and Lenormand Revolution are going on a Southwest and European divination tour this month!

First stop, Berlin where both oracles will be featured live on the esoteric shopping network, AstroTV.  From there we travel to London for the 10th anniversary of the UK Tarot Conference where I’ll present two classes on the Lenormand Revolution & Magpie Oracle, and Becoming a Card Curator.

After Europe I am excited to reunite with many friends in Dallas where I’ll present at TarotCon 2013! After Dallas, the organizers of TarotCon and Tarot Profesionals, Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin, will join me in Santa Fe for two evenings of Tarot & Oracle Casting held at the lovely yoga studio, Body.

The final leg of the journey will be the topper on the diviner’s cake. Lisa de St Croix, Marcus Katz, Tali Goodwin and I will be joining in on one of my favorite events in Durango Colorado, the Living Tarot Oracle of Southwest Colorado, organized by the Sinister Sisters, Tami Graham and Juila Hesse. We will be offering a Friday night panel discussion that recognizes tarot as a living source of wisdom.  This will be followed by the Living Tarot Oracle event held both Saturday and Sunday evenings where 22 actors colorfully bring to life the 22 cards of the major arcana and act out your reading. There is nothing like it!

And if that isn’t enough, Lisa, Marcus, Tali and I will be offering a workshop on the Ancient Art of Divining in Durango on Sunday, Oct. 27th from 10:00-2:00. Come join in on the fun and learn to navigate your future on purpose. All levels are encouraged. I look forward to seeing many of you along the way!
