It is just under a week until the Oracle of Initiation divination deck’s tenth anniversary. There are some amazing new experiences and specials coming up during this grand celebration, and I am so thrilled to be teaching in the desert again. This anniversary is such a wonderful marker, the maturing of a project that offers such deep and compelling shape-shifting mysteries. The deck is a GPS guide to navigating these turbulent times, a multidimensional  wisdom council revealing the hidden power within our shadows. These Rainbows in the Dark are the paradox of our greatest gifts being tempered and honed during our challenges; our light reflected through the prisms of our holy crevices.

The deck is a hand-held wisdom council of ancient cross-cultural guardians illuminating your rainbows in the dark, the paradox of your greatest gifts hidden in your shadows.
