Last Saturday, April 2, I gathered a group of visionaries in my home. We spent the day exploring the
tarot card of the Magician, the archetype of the visionary. Each of us came with a vision that was clarified, through the lens of the Magician. Then, we sealed these visions into our bodies, through a guided ArcanaDance experience. Our visions are now firmly imprinted in minds, hearts, cells, muscles, bones and soul.
These ArcanaDance mini-immersions are deeply personal. I don't want to interrupt the transformation that occurs with photography, but I did capture (to the right, above) a photo of our altar with our vision cards and declarations. It was a powerful day! Many of you have inquired and I am working on offering another day with the Magician later this year. Stay tuned!
Come join me at my home in North Seattle on Saturday, May 21, 2016
, 11:00am – 5:00p, for A Tarot Journey with The Empress card: Healing the Mother Within
. Together, we will use tarot as a guide to heal old stories, dance the mother within, and claim our selves as the ultimate source of nourishment. Come honor and celebrate the divine mother within you. Spots are limited so please RSVP at email@example.com
. The address will be provided upon registration.

Rebirth and Renewal
The next ArcanaDance
three-week series begins this Sunday, April 10, 2016
at 9:00am at Balance Studio in Fremont. This month, to coincide
with the season of spring, we will be exploring the tarot card of Judgment, the archetypal energy of rebirth and renewal
. In the tarot, the Judgment card represents heeding the call to a new beginning. This archetypal energy shines a light on the places where we've felt weary, tired and torn so that we can breathe new life into these places. This is the perfect archetype to explore during the season of spring, where we see signs of new life and growth emerging all around us in the natural world. And through our dances, guided by the voice of Judgment, we remember that flower buds were once tight and in their rebirth experience newness and freedom.
