The Wheel turns ever on . . . and we turn our hearts toward bringing in the May. Please join me in welcoming Aphrodite, Flora, the May Queen, the Green Man, and other fae figures who usher in the tide of Beltane. It’s one of my favorite times of the year — time to celebrate love (all kinds of love!), sensuality, sexuality, and beauty. New ecourse starts on Friday, April 24th, and it's only $19. Join us? ‪#‎30daysofmay‬   http://bit.ly/30DaysofMay

The second of two offerings this month to honor the Celtic Goddess Brigid. This one is a Sacred Art Online Workshop, creating an icon — prayer painting -- similar to this one.  It's going to be fun!

I am happy to announce my first retreat for both women and men with my good friend, tarot teacher James Wells, as my co-host. 

Come away with us next June to a magical Northwest isle, where you will gather with kindred spirits to replenish and refresh yourself, finding nourishment on sacred land. 

If you love tarot, dreamwork, creative play, and our sacred earth, you will love this retreat!

On the blog: Reflecting on 30+ years of circling, and how this past week's training with Ann Linnea and Christina Baldwin took me deeper into the practice than I had ever thought possible. Grateful.
I’ve been circling for a long, long time. I began with women’s circles in the early 80’s (unless we go back to childhood and count the circles sittin

I’ve created two Online Sacred Art Workshops since the beginning of the year, and the second one will be available on April 1st, as part of “21 Secrets” http://bit.ly/jpc-tarot-icon — 21 fabulous art journaling workshops for artists of all skill levels. 

My workshop is called "Personal Tarot Icons," in which I'll guide you (through video, photos, and written instructions) into choosing a personal tarot card, writing a prayer or poem about it, and incorporating the card and your poem into a mixed-media collage piece. Sounds like fun, yes?

Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll see in my workshop

I'm happy to announce a new ecourse for the season of Imbolc / Candlemas. Beautiful photos, art, quotes, journal prompts, and photo / art prompts land in your inbox every day for 30 days, giving you the opportunity to take a Sacred Pause. It's a way to connect more deeply with the creative fire of the Celtic Goddess Brigid and honor her during her season. I'd love to have you join us! ‪#‎30daysofbrigid‬  http://bit.ly/30DaysofBrigid

I have a new offering to share, and the Tarot Lady +Theresa Reed says:  "I had an EXTREMELY powerful experience from my blessing bag and will be writing about it on Saturday.  If you are in pain or dealing with some difficult situations, this can help.  HIGHLY recommended."  Deep appreciation!

I'm in post-retreat, quiet, re-entry mode, still glowing from a few days with beautiful women and that glorious Mama Ocean. I've written a bit about the highlights of the retreat in this post. What a time we had!
I’ve returned home from the fifth Gaian Soul Retreat I have hosted at our beloved Aldermarsh Retreat Center on Whidbey Island. I love, love, love this wo

Story
Tagline
Artist, author, teacher, retreat leader, creatrix of the Gaian Tarot.
Introduction

Joanna Powell Colbert is an artist, author, retreat host, and teacher of tarot, sacred art, and earth-centered spirituality. Amber Lotus Publishing Co. calls her one of “the most accomplished and well-loved artists in the Goddess-spirit community.” She was named by SageWoman magazine in 2013 as one of the Wisdom Keepers of the Goddess Spirituality movement.

The Gaian Tarot, nine years in the making, combines Joanna’s love of symbolic, archetypal art with the mysteries of the natural world. The Collector's Edition deck was released in 2010, and its run of 1000 is nearly sold out. A mass market version of the Gaian Tarot was published by Llewellyn Worldwide in 2011. 

Joanna teaches e-courses and workshops on earth-­centered spirituality, manifesting your dreams, seasonal contemplative practices, creativity as a devotional path, and using tarot as a tool for inner guidance and self-­exploration. She also leads Gaian Soul Retreats for women twice a year, in the spring and fall.
