Bring your creative work into the light of D.A.Y.
Divinely Artistic YOU!
A Programme for ALL Kinds of Artists
with James Wells
I am thrilled to announce Divinely Artistic YOU, a four-week intuitive/oracular guidance programme that supports people in the creative arts – novelists, poets, playwrights, painters, collage artists, photographers, composers, instrumentalists, singers, dancers, choreographers, ceramicists, filmmakers, sculptors, fibre artists, jewellery makers, multimedia performers, ritualists, and more. Using a set of evocative cards called the Oracle of Initiation, we will overcome “creator’s block”, identify your most lucrative project, and manifest your creation for your authentic audience to enjoy and celebrate.
Like the Oracle of Initiation itself, this four-week (plus follow-up!) process combines raw, honest spontaneity with grounded structure. The insights called forth from randomly chosen symbols will delight and surprise you at times and confirm your own instincts at other times. The maps to which we apply the cards guide the process so pros and cons become super clear, manageable timelines are established, and allies and resources are revealed.
What happens in your four 50-minute Divinely Artistic YOU consultations (and beyond)?
~ Session One: A reading to discover the juicy creative project that wants to come forth through you and what your journey with it looks like.
~ Session Two: Using Oracle of Initiation images, we listen to four voices: the soul of your project, its naysayers, its supporters, and those whom it will inspire.
~ Session Three: A reading to identify what’s yours to do, what your allies can contribute to your process, compromises to make, boundaries to set, unconscious influences, your project’s ideal venue, and more.
~ Session Four: Synthesis. A reading or process to tie up loose ends and solidify concrete, doable actions.
~ Follow-up: I will give you a 66-day self-guidance template based on the 66 cards of the Oracle of Initiation. After that, you’ll receive a simple outline to help you announce your exquisite creation to the world and bring ’em in!
Something I want you to know is that this is NOT fortune-telling. What is it then? Divination, as I understand and practise it, is an ART FORM that allows you to approach, listen to, and manifest your divine Self, the part of you that is as potent and generative as the Infinite Power that made the Earth, the stars, the trees, and the human species. Your mode of artistic expression is as much a part of the unfolding of the cosmos as anything else is. Your work matters!
“OK, James, it’s YOUR fault that I’m awash in jaw-dropping creative flow right now. This was the most insightful and productive catalyst I’ve ever experienced. I loved how precise and practical it was, that I walked away knowing exactly what to do with the information and how to make it work for me. Thank you!” ~ T.N., Southampton, PA, U.S.A.
Why bring your creative process to me? In addition to living with symbolic tools like the tarot since 1979 and using them professionally since 1995, I have a background in the arts: I’ve played piano for dancers, conducted chamber choirs, composed and arranged music, played the organ, published two books (so far!), written and recited poetry, crafted rituals, delivered workshops and lectures, and contributed articles to various almanacs and magazines. My training in Circle Way process ensures that I am an attentive listener, intentional speaker, and weaver of comfortable, diversity-honouring time and space where the Muse can come forth with clarity.
I’m offering Divinely Artistic YOU because many cherished friends and clients who work in the arts expressed a desire for an imaginative, enjoyable programme that is simultaneously intuitive and down-to-earth to help them stay on track and birth their visions in the real world. I also wanted to integrate my friend Mellissae Lucia’s stunning Oracle of Initiation more deeply into my counselling work and share its wisdom with others. My sincere wish for you is that this four-week programme will dissolve obstacles to your creativity, help you tap into your potential, set up a doable plan, and get your finished work to the people who will appreciate and want it most.
“For a craftsman/artist, the more you make beauty, the more your soul is beautiful!”
~ Jean-Claude Flornoy, artist and restorer of historical tarot decks.
