This episode is co-hosted by Susan Gold and Evelyn Pine. To participate, it doesn’t matter how much or how little you know about writing or the tarot.

Episode Number 8, Writing with the Tarot #3 is 21.1 MB and 15:26 minutes long, but this does not including writing time. We encourage you to pause your recorder throughout the episode to allow yourself ample time for writing. We tried this exercise out at a workshop we offered at Sacred Paths Bookstore in San Mateo, CA. The workshop was 2 hours, though I think we were all inspired to go home and keep writing!

In this episode

Writing with the Tarot #3 is a personal writing exercise. There are five steps to this exercise which will culminate in a lot of writing! In a nutshell, you will pull cards to explore a span of your life—therefore we call it the Tarot Time Line exercise.

We have a few optional Word documents you may download for this exercise: Brainstorm, Tarot Time Line, Tarot Chart. If you prefer, you can also simply grab a pad of paper.

Before you get started, we encourage you to do the warm-up exercise we have recorded in Tarot Table Talk Episode #7, aka, Writing with the Tarot #2. This is designed to be used with all Writing with the Tarot episodes. In the warm-up episode, we give you a series of questions to help you explore the imagery of a card through writing. This can be a very satisfying stand-alone exercise as well.

We’d love to hear from you

This podcast course is a work in progress, so we would love to hear your feedback. We would also love to hear about your writing process for these exercises. Don’t be shy about posting!
