"We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.” ― Anaïs Nin
Choose Between An Individual Retreat Or Group Retreat
Our tarot class for groups runs on a specific date and is capped at 6 participants. The benefit of undertaking the course in a group setting is the social element and being able to learn from a variety of people.
This course is also designed to be taken as an individual program. The benefit of this approach is that you get more individualised learning and more in depth notes. It also allows you to choose a date that works for you, or take the course online for those unable to get to our Blue Mountains retreat centre.
Similiar to most Jungian retreats, this course explores archetypal integration and shadow work. A key aspect of Jungian pyschology is that "One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious."
Leaving the overculture to take the Soul’s Journey
An advanced tarot course incorporating depth psychology.
Designed to be an intimate group of no more than 6 people, we will gather every equinox & solstice over 18 months to engage with tarot pairings in a way which is meaningful to our everyday lives. This deep dive will suit:
Tarot enthusiasts (beginners welcome)
Tarot and oracle readers
Jungians & those drawn to depth psychology
Therapists looking to add a powerful modality to their tool kit
Those drawn to shadow work & healing woundedness
People committed to personal development & spiritual development
Those who are committed to their life's work/mission & looking to meet kindred spirits
Depth Psychotherapy Center
Whereas some depth psychotherapy training programs are more intellectually oriented, this program endeavours to balance head and heart learning.

#1 The Fool
The program begins with a brief background of depth psychology and its relationship to the tarot.
We then explore the Fool archetype, its shadow component and then move these concepts into story form, journalling how the Fool has expressed itself in your life. The session concludes with the option of participants sharing their story with the group.
#2 The Magician
We will explore the Magician archetype, its shadow component and how it relates to the Fool.
Once again, we will then move these concepts into story form, journalling how the Magician has expressed itself in your life.
There is an optional waterfall walk for you to do at the end of the day.
We return to our sacred space under candle light to hear one another's stories of our encounter with the Magician and how it altered our life.
Start your day with an optional meditation, yoga session or labyrinth walk.
#3 The Empress
We then explore the Empress archetype, its shadow component and then move these concepts into story form, journalling how the Empress has expressed itself in your life. The session concludes with the option of participants sharing their story with the group.
#4 The Emperor
We will explore the second pairing (also known as the earthly parents) being the Emperor archetype, its shadow component and how it relates to the Empress.
Once again, we will then move these concepts into story form, journalling how the archetype has expressed itself in your life and concluding with the option of participants sharing their story with the group.
