In this 30 day course we will share our methods of using tarot and oracle cards to elevate our personal journaling, spiritual, and creative practices. The cards are creative and intuitive tools that when used intentionally can lead to deeper insights into who we've been, who we are, and who we can become.
This is a basic course for all levels and types of journalers. The course is designed with three kinds of journal keepers in mind: those who keep an analog or digital written journal, those who art journal, and those who blend words and images to create a visual journal. And it doesn't matter if you've never used a tarot or oracle deck before, there will be plenty of opportunity to explore online and we will included a lesson on creating your own personal oracle deck.
While we will primarily use Tarot and Oracle cards in this course, we will also touch on, and incorporate, other intuitive guidance systems (astrology, numerology, crystals, chakras, etc.).

BINDI SHAH -- Bindi's journey to her soul offerings started in 2001 with a visit to an Ayurveda retreat in India. After discovering how good it felt to receive deep natural health-care and what a difference this made to her life, she embarked on a course in India to learn more of this ancient art. The year-long study in India included theory from the ancient scriptures, learning the poetic language of Sanskrit, vedic-astrology, yoga, meditation and herbs. It was an amazing experience and on returning to London, she set up her business helping people with the knowledge she had gained.
While treating people for various conditions, Bindi realised that the key to a lot of physical problems lay in emotional issues. She started meditating more herself and teaching more of this ancient practice as a technique for healing. Healing herself from a past life trauma led to the development of the Soul Healing Meditation. In this meditation the person directly connects with their inner self and essence, the soul. The insights received from this connection help the person heal on a deeper spiritual level.
Bindi has wonderful soul offerings in her online school and is writing her first book based on life coaching techniques which have helped her and her clients. Connect with Bindi on Instagram and on her blog.
