The Last Path Within Tarot Course

Hello Bright Ones, we are drawing up to Spring and as the wheel turns I am being called to travel more with The Swan Blessing and shamanic sessions. Along with these new travel commitments I am feeling a calling to do deeper work more personally, one-to-one in private consultation. This means I will be bringing my teaching circles to an end for a while and I will no longer be able to offer The Path Within Tarot and Spiritual Development Course. I have felt a calling to commit to our work with The Swan Blessing shamanic past life clearing and The Black Swan work embracing our Dark Sister to understand the Shadow. In this potent time of change I have noticed sessions becoming deeper and raw and very beautiful as we cast of the chains of fear and ties to the past to step into the path of the fearless healer, teacher, artists, lovers...to honour the raw and beautiful changes in our clients I must be so very present and committed to this work alone.

For all of you who have journeyed in these circles over the many years, I thank you with all my heart and wish you well on your own adventures with this beautiful intuitive tool. In a Tarot sense, I feel I am moving after many years of The Empress into The High Priestess or The Seer as I like to call her. For all of those beautiful souls familiar with this card and energy, it is also a time of connecting deeper with my own ancestor teachers and the creative well of my heart to complete creative projects that have been waiting for me to have space enough to complete them with full attention and intention. This will see the birth of the long awaited Beyond the 9th Wave journeying and meditation cd, healing cds, encaustic art oracle and channeled booklet and animal messenger totem oracle deck.

And so it is that the last The Path Within will begin on the first week in September. In this last journey of The Path we will focus particularly on reading intuitively in YOUR OWN WAY and trusting your way. I will be reading with The Gaian Tarot as well as the traditional decks as I feel The Gaian Tarot is the spirit of the new evolving energy of the Tarot. I encourage you to choose a Tarot deck that speaks to your heart with it's beauty - a deck that seems to speak from image alone. If you feel called, there are 3 places left and I hope to set you all on a path towards your own mastery as a Tarot Reader - I'll try and squeeze in EVERYTHING I know!

Oceans of love as the frontiers open to new horizons for us all,

keep dreaming, Julia

A Tarot Honeycomb

Full Moon by Flora McLachlan

Last night at the Piscean Full Moon a new Tarot circle came into being. Thank you to all of the beautiful women who stepped into The Path Within together. I hope your journey is one of mystery, magic and healing as you reclaim your own ancient ancestral wisdom and mythic story.

To celebrate the Full Moon we each placed a wish into a candle, placing them into a spiral bowl of natural spring water from the Wombat Forest well. As we connected to our intention we listened to the recording of honeybees within a sacred hive.  I left these candles to burn and in the morning this is what they had a created: a gorgeous Tarot honeycomb of bright wishes.

Blessings and love to the new members of our Tarot circle, may all your wishes be golden.

The Wolf and the Moon

Last night there was a beautiful serenity and deep energy in The Path Within Tarot class. I have been feeling the energy of the Wolf around lately and she is urging us to go deeper, to be wilder, to step into the unknown and out of our comfort zone. I even recall that one of my students Bec was wearing a t-shirt with a wolf howling at the Moon. In the Tarot card The Moon we see a Dog (our tame and civilised self) and a Wolf (our wild, instinctual self) howling at the moon as a path sits between them. This path leads through a gateway to initiation, to the unknown...is it time to be courageous and take the 'path less travelled'? In this week of the Waning Moon it is a beautiful time for reflection and stepping into the mystery. Perhaps for some, the Full Moon last week has already given you insights into a new pathway opening for you now and you are getting ready to sow the seeds of this new dream.

I love this video for Pearl's Dream by Bat for Lashes. Here is a wonderful depiction of the battle between our wild, mystical nature and our tame side that sometimes can become the cynical 'shadow' or inner critic due to the pain it feels from having to always play it safe and watch from the sidelines. Only letting yourself do 'what you should' or living only by other's expectations can create more pain and fear that actually taking that step onto the path that leads into the unknown. We all experience The Moon card of the Tarot differently and your Wolf nature may simply be urging you to look at the Moon and Stars outside tonight, or it might be urging you to really step outside of your comfort zone and plan a couple of days away just by yourself. Today my Wolf wants me to turn off the phone and computer and go 'beachcombing' just to see what I might find there today. Take a deep breath and listen...is there a Wolf howling in your chest? Listen closely, there is great wisdom in the call of this beautiful animal totem so linked to mystery, natural instincts and freedom.

Might watch this today too!

The Path Within 3-Day Tarot & Healing Course

For those of you who might find it difficult to travel to Williamstown for the night classes of The Path Within or can not commit to a 3 month course period, we have created The Path Within 3-Day Weekend Intensive to be held over the weekend of 14th-15th May and the following Saturday 21st May 2011. In these 3 days you will learn to read the ancient symbols of the Tarot as a healing tool for yourself and others, learn techniques to deepen your Intuition and communicate with the Higher Self and Reconnect to Nature.

The Path Within is a Healing Course, creating Sacred Harmony and Connection to Nature through the ancient symbols of the Tarot. I am most passionate about teaching others to 'be your own healer' and by imparting the Tarot Mysteries I hope that you discover the 'Oracle Within' yourself.  As a pathworker, I merely stand at the doorway to the Temple of Yourself - the magical world of Tarot embraces symbology, mythology, astrology, numerology and beauty in all it's guises. 


This course is perfect for absolute beginners to Tarot and is also open to anyone who would like to build on their current Tarot skills in a warm and creative group. It is important to note that this course will not be used in replacement of professional counselling or therapy where needed. When we take The Path Within we are embracing responsibility for the creation of manifesting the lives we truly desire in a warm and well-grounded environment of like-minded souls.
