Spellcrafting Your Own Hero’s Journey
Taking my popular Tarot for Writers course, I am tweaking it to include some magical steps. In a way, we are all on a continual hero’s journey of our own. We may not be Luke catching a ride off-planet on the Millennium Falcon or Rey discovering our own innate talents with a lightsaber. Still, we are unique individuals with gifts of our own. I have taught the hero’s journey as a way of crafting a book, but here we will tackle it from both sides plus examine how we can use Tarot in a magical way to enhance our own journey.
There are seventeen steps in the hero’s journey as laid out by Joseph Campbell in Hero With A Thousand Faces. I propose that we use Tarot and magic to determine where we are, so we can set intentions to get to the place we want to be. Not that where we are is so bad for some of us, but that we all want to “level up” in our personal lives. That reaching for the next place is a common theme. I use a thirteen step system rather than the full seventeen of Campbell
This course will contain seven vidoes plus pdf handouts. You are encouraged to think outside of the box. There will be ingredients for the spells but I use as many common items as I can. Most of the herbs can be found in your own kitchen pantry (or if you don’t cook, in your neighbor’s pantry. HA!) (EDITED726/2018 I streamlined the spells even more. You need chime candles, incense and paper!)
Come explore how to reimagine your own life. Let the Tarot co-create the person you know yourself to be. This isn’t a replacement for any modality. It is an additional tool to your toolbox of self-care. Who do you know yourself to be? How can Tarot help you express that? Come find out with Arwen Lynch-Poe, the Professional Joy Seeker.
Bonus Lesson: You will also have my Hero’s Journey spread to help you in finishing that damned book too. So takeaway magical practicalities for yourself as well as how-to’s for your fictional characters.
