A New Online Course For You! Craft A Visionary Talisman

“This is what rituals are for. We do spiritual ceremonies as human beings in order to create a safe resting place for our most complicated feelings of joy or trauma, so that we don’t have to haul those feelings around with us forever, weighing us down. We all need such places of ritual safekeeping. And I do believe that if your culture or tradition doesn’t have the specific ritual you are craving, then you are absolutely permitted to make up a ceremony of your own devising, fixing your own broken-down emotional systems with all the do-it-yourself resourcefulness of a generous plumber/poet.”
~ Elizabeth Gilbert

When I lived in the remote Kimberley district, during my year of psychic awakening, my Aboriginal Aunties taught me the importance of ritual, respect and self-empowerment.

Over the years I have had other Elders as teachers and mentors, and I have also had years of connection with my own energetic team as I have journeyed this spiritual path.

One of the rituals I now follow each year that supports me in very practical ways is the choosing of a Guiding Card for my year ahead, and then the creation of a Visionary Talisman. I have created a Visionary Talisman for myself every year for the past fifteen years, and I’ve found the personal and spiritual growth I have achieved during this time to have been accelerated by this intentional and mindful creative practice. It truly is a powerful tool for transformation and manifestation. The Talisman is also a lovely focusing tool to use for meditation and journalling work, and a strong visual reminder to me of my Guiding Card qualities and messages.

In this course, I’ll be showing you to how to connect with your own guiding card for the year ahead, and how to create a Symbolic Lexicon and Visionary Talisman of your own.

This is shamanic work. Deep work. Work to help you know yourself, work to strengthen your intuition, work to build your psychic and spiritual connections. You don’t need to be an artist, and you don’t need to have any experience. I’ll guide you through every step, and teach you the foundation skills of everything you need to know.

The work of crafting your Talisman can be done in an afternoon, or over a couple of shorter sessions. But that’s not all there is to this course. I then show you how to work with the tools you create so that they bring meaning, guidance and comfort to you throughout the year.

Did you ever want to be a witch or a wizard when you were a kid? One who could cast spells and work magic?

Or perhaps you have been fascinated by The Law of Attraction, watched the movie The Secret or have used vision boards/dream boards, visualisation or positive affirmations?

Have you long been intrigued by shamans and metaphysical practitioners and wanted to do similar things but don’t know how?

Or maybe you have always liked to work with goal-setting and being accountable to a project goal or plan?

Creating a Visionary Talisman works a little like all of the things I’ve just mentioned. 

Your Talisman radiates the energy of your Guiding Card into the world in a way that is personally attuned to you!

It is a powerful, personal energetic tool which you infuse with positive energy and intention – adding symbols that will magnetise you to certain situations, emotional strengths, energetic qualities and opportunities.

Think of it as both a beacon that radiates energy into the world and a magnet that will draw ideas, inspiration and energies to you, amplify helpful qualities within you and align you with those energies and qualities.

The course has 8 lessons, all available online, so that you can work at your own pace. You’ll also have lifetime access to the course materials.

I want as many of you as possible to experience this work, so we’ve decided to offer this course at an introductory low price of $57AUD. Normally the price would be $77 to $97AUD and it will go back up to that again soon. If you’re already a paid member of my YOM community this course is FREE for you. (Want to join us as a member?

I have some exciting news! My friend Maia Toll runs a couple of online courses every year, known as Witch Camp. Maia is a herbalist and wise woman, who is helping others to reclaim the word witch the way witch once was – where a witch is a woman who knows herself and her cycle in the seasons. And yes, men too can be witches!

Witch Camp is a seven week (and a little extra!) online course that gives daily support as you journal, connect to nature, do some soul journeying, and play with crystals, tarot and oracle cards, herbs, words, art and meditation. Writing becomes a powerful tool for transformation as you move with the cycles of the moon and the solstice, gradually becoming clear about who you are, what matters to you, and why you are here.

Sound like fun?

What’s even more exciting is that this year Maia has divided the course into Witch Camp North and Witch Camp South. She’ll be leading Witch Camp North, helping all of those in the Northern Hemisphere as they move from Spring into Summer.

Here’s the bestest bit – I will be leading Witch Camp South! I’ve customised Maia’s content for those of us who live in the Southern Hemisphere, so together we will be exploring the energies of Autumn as we move towards the Winter Solstice, using our time to retreat into ourselves, to connect with nature and ancestors, to do some deep journey work into ourselves and our shadow side (the part of us that is often hidden from our daily lives).

There’s a wonderful forum with the course where we can comment, share and support each other. And we’ll also have a private facebook page where we can gather too.

For this momentous first gathering together, Maia has opted to offer the course to you at the early bird price of $89 USD for seven delicious weeks of daily support, magic, journalling, self exploration and community. The course starts May 3rd, and you only need yourself, a notebook and just a few simple tools that you’ll most likely have already lying around the house.

If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, make sure to choose Witch Camp North with Maia.

If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, come join Witch Camp South with me!
