Working the Swords for Change + Transformation


Winter is just around the corner. We are in the season of the great exhale. The earth is calling us to slow down, come to stillness, and turn within. What might you find within yourself, in this season of growing dark?

Join us as we open to change and transformation in collaboration with the suit of Swords.

This is an 11-week invitation to gently dive deep into the suit of Swords in the minor arcana of the tarot. This is not a traditional general ‘intro to tarot’ class. Rather, this is a container for you to engage with each Sword individually to support your personal healing and transformation.

Each week we will focus on a card from the suit of Swords. We will proceed slowly, gently, and spaciously. We will spend time with each card, and see what arises.

Through art + writing reflection, ritual and practice invitations, we will open to the suit of Swords and all it may have to share with us.

While I will be sharing some of my relationships with the cards as a supporting framework for engaging with change, and will offer some additional resources on card interpretations, your personal experiences with each card is the core of this work. We will be taking an intuitive approach. Thus, the focus of this offering will be gleaning our own wisdom on how these cards can support our personal (and through personal, collective) transformation.

This course is a combination of self-study through weekly podia content with four live calls via Zoom to connect with community, share experiences and honor our process.

How The Program Works

After signing up, you will receive a welcome email with all the things you need to know.

The course content will be shared on a weekly basis on Sundays, accessible via Podia. You will receive an email reminder each week as the next section is available to you.

This is an experiential course. There will be some written content shared with you each week, and some optional invitations for further learning, but the emphasis will be on the shared invitations to work with the week’s themes. You will be invited to engage with each week’s card as deeply as feels aligned for you. There is no wrong way to work with Tarot or the suit of Swords.

We will have four community calls to hold the container and connect. This will be a space to share with each other how our process is going, to offer support and receive support in return if desired.

Questions + Answers

What kind of time commitment can participants expect?

This course is a gentle, open ended invitation. There is not a huge time commitment required to participate. The shared material on Podia will be under an hours’ worth of engagement each week. The course is designed for you to be able to make it your own. You will be invited to spend as much or little time with each card as you feel called. This can look like all kinds of things – it might look like spending an hour one day a week with the card and the course material; or it might look like spending 10 minutes each morning throughout the week; or it may be something else entirely. It’s up to you. Know that this is not a content heavy offering; most of the time you spend will be experiential as you meet and engage with the card of the week.

How long will I have access to the course?

Participants will have access to the content for the life of the course. This will be at least a year on this Podia platform. Participants will also be invited to participate in future live rounds when another live round is offered.

Do you welcome participants at lower- or no-cost?

Yes, I do! If you feel called to this offering, and the presented investment is outside of your financial capacity, please use the form below and request a no-cost or lower-cost place. I am honored to receive such requests. Access the request form here.

No, unfortunately at this time I do not.
