Decoding the Messages of the Muse


For Writers

Decoding the Messages of the Muse: A Mini-Retreat for Writers with Carolyn Cushing of Soul Path Sanctuary and Jaymi Elford, author of A Tarot Inspired Life

Writers of all genres will find supports for deepening the connection to their creative flow as we:

  • Experiences ways to work with images from the Tarot and nature to inspire your writing process.
  • Play with words, the foundational tools of our trade.
  • Find guidance for telling stories within the images and structure of the Tarot.

There will be plenty of time for writing and we will enjoy a delicious lunch together.

Absolutely no experience with the Tarot is necessary and we’ll have decks to share. But if you do have a deck, feel free to bring it. And, of course, bring your writing equipment.
