Working the Wands

tending our creative flame

 

What creative project is wanting to

be born from your hands

in this season of growing light?

 

 

What might cultivating a devotional

creative practice offer you?

Join us as we nurture our creative flame

with the suit of Wands

as the warm season unfurls with unbridled abundance

what might the Wands teach us about creative practice? how might they support our creative dreams?

the Wands have so much to teach us about the devotional and passionate creativity that is our birthright as alive creatures. They have so much wisdom to share around creativity for its own sake, being with creative process and steadily moving towards fruition.

Working the Wands is a three month invitation to dive deep into the suit of Wands in the minor arcana of the tarot. This group container will support you in engaging with each Wand, learning their wisdom and bringing this insight into your creative pursuits.

Each week we will focus on a Wand card from Ace – Ten.  We will proceed slowly, spaciously, spending time with each card, and seeing what arises.  We will let the Wand’s wisdom unfurl within us as life in the springtime unfurls all around us.  Through art + writing reflection, exercises and practice invitations, we will open to the suit of Wands and all it may have to share with us.

As we are doing this, we will also be each tending to a personal creative project. As we move through each Wand’s energy, we will explore how they can support our creative process with whatever we have decided to work on.  To support this aspect of the work, we will have weekly calls where we will share our experiences, explore the Wand’s energies, offer mutual support, and work together in shared space.

Let the Wands and a community of creatives support you in deepening your own relationship with your Creativity.

 

 

Part creative incubator, part tarot class, part mutual support community –

Working the Wands invites you to open to the Wand’s magic

and support of like-minded creative community

How The Program Works

This course is a combination of self-study weekly tarot content and weekly calls over three and a half months.

The weekly recorded tarot content will be sent via email on Sundays.

There will card specific audio recordings as well as some written content shared with you each week, along with optional invitations for further learning.  There will also be practice 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 Wands.

in addition to being guided through the Wand suit, we will have alternating community calls and co-working sessions every two weeks over the course of three months.

On our community calls, we will explore the week’s themes, discuss how our creative tending is going, offer and receive support, and connect over process.

During our co-working session, we will each spend our time working on our self-directed creative projects in shared space.

Through these weekly meetings, we will support each other with group accountability, wisdom sharing and gentle support.  We will have 7 biweekly community calls and 5 biweekly coworking sessions.

 

Align with the season’s energy;

let Spring’s fertile momentum buoy you and guide your creative process!

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do i need to have a creative project already decided on to sign up?

No! Our first community call and our first co-working sessions will include time for brainstorming and intuitive dreaming. You are welcome to participate and simply follow the creative flow when a clear project idea comes to you. Of course, if you already have a project that you want support working on, that’s wonderful too!

Do I need to make every call?

No you do not! While it is encouraged to come to the calls to really support you in your creative commitment and in showing up for this process, the calls are not obligatory. In my experience, the more folks show up for the calls, the more they get out of these programs overall.

Do you promise specific creative results if I join?

No! This is a container for you to be supported in your personal creative work, wherever you are in your relationship with creativity.  What I can commit to is this: I will hold a strong container for creative practice, offer creative prompts and invitations to deepen in your work, hold space for mutual support and gentle coaching, and share my experiences of being supported by the Wands in my own creative practice. I will hold space for each of us to show up to our creative projects, and offer gentle encouragement and problem solving as needed; the rest is up to each of us.

What is the time commitment of this program?

Plan to spend at least an hour a week on a group call or co-working session.  The content in the online classroom consists of audio recordings between 8-15 minutes in length. There are creative invitations and reflection prompts for you to engage with if you choose; these can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 hours, depending on how deeply you want to explore.  How much time you decide to spend with each Wand card is up to you.  90 minutes per week of combined learning and chatting time is a rough estimate if you don’t delve too deeply; 2-3 hours is also possible.

 

Each of us will get out of this what we put into it. The more you commit to your creative practice, the more space you make for the Wands in your life, and the more you are able to show up for creative devotion – the deeper your experience will be.
