Begin with reflection & intention

This coursework is deep psycho-active or soul activating creativity. It is often described as life changing, offering the gift of getting to know your soul and yourself. It is not easy, but it is profoundly rewarding and life affirming, touching upon the core of who you are and why you are here. At its foundation this art is about your heart's purpose and soul's call.
Its beautiful the language that you use. . . I really feel that you have made such a huge contribution to our souls, to our artistic creative selves. . . You have come in and created a furthering of neuropathways and pathways for us to look at the artist, the archetypal artist, and give us a place where we can have soul. I have great appreciation for what you have done with your dissertation. I would like to have a lot more Jungian work like this.

Contribute to a collective vision

There are many reasons to create your own tarot deck, but the most important (to me) is the evolution of group consciousness to reflect an inclusive view of humanity and human diversity of experience. While the traditional tarot offers a profoundly powerful archetypal path, the images need to reflect all of us as the alchemical Great Work of Art and a group self-portrait. In creating your deck and activating it through your living participation with and integration of the images in your life, you are contributing to the individuation of the human species and soul. When we remember that soul and its image-based intuition is collective, we are on our way home.

Following in the soul's footsteps

Heather has been called to walk the transformative path of the Soul of Creativity. Having spent decades in self and soul-directed exploration as a professional artist and seeker, she has taught this process in college classes and workshops. With a doctoral degree in archetypal psychology on art as a transformative process (based on Jung's Red Book), she is passionate about the transformative power of creativity. is a playful seeker, explorer, and inspirer who combines eco, art, and play therapy in a healing and teaching path that is embodied and natural.

The Emergent Image

Following those who have gone before

While Heather has researched the soul's creativity to walk and lead others on this path, your soul is your real guide. Combining cutting-edge science and ancient wisdom, this path's deep magic is the soul. It is the soul you follow and only you can connect to your soul (You). The heart of this path is your relationship with your soul that connects you with your greater Self.
"Only in our creative acts do we step forth into the light and see ourselves as whole and complete." C G Jung

Tarot is powerful & archetypal 

This coursework is deep psycho-active or soul activating creativity. It is often described as life changing, offering the gift of getting to know your soul and yourself. It is not easy, but it is profoundly rewarding and affirming, touching upon the core of who you are and why you are here. At its foundation this art is about your heart's purpose and soul's calling .

This is your life . . . ready, set, go.

When we activate our imagination we activate an inner way of knowing at the heart of creativity. Jung described this, saying, "Active imagination requires a state of reverie, half-way between sleep and waking. Without this playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of the imagination is incalculable."

A trailhead to the imagination.

As you walk you activate your imagination and open to the symbolic guidance of the soul in synchronicity, dreams, and visions. You are dreaming yourself awake and learning to see the waking world as if in a dream through the symbolic sight and insight of your soul. Opening to an archetypal perspective, you will begin to perceive the mythic story that underpins your life, guiding you on a path both within and without. As you move through the course, each week's lesson will "show up" and reveal itself in living images and experiences that deepen your insight. 

Following in archetypal footsteps.

While we follow the voice and vision of my dissertation, we also follow in the footsteps of artists and seekers from the past and present like Jung who have trod this soulful path through the ages. Integrating different examples from different traditions helps us explore and experience the breadth and depth of the soul's archetypal pathway as a creative form of transformation. Like embodied example of Jung's Black and Red Books, we end up off road, exploring the terrain of our own living psychology and soul. There is only one way, your way.

Vocation: Follow your soul's calling

"Every human life contains a potential, if that potential is not fulfilled, then that life was wasted." This is a call to the rhizome buried in our life that holds our purpose. What is our potential--our soul's true call?

A 3 month journey

While 3 month may seem like a long time compared to a weekend workshop, Jung took years to create his Black Books. These course steps are designed to provide a minimum of support and time needed to embark on a circuitous journey home to the soul and Self. They balance the need to go deep and live in the world, offering creative isolation along with partner and group work to simulate elements of the students that Jung taught and lead, following his own process and soul. In walking this path you are activating your imagination beyond art, as you enter into the Great Work of Art of the transformation of your life and the world.
