The first hour will be a talk on Taoist cosmology, the history of Fu talismans, the 13 principles of craft as derived from the Yellow Emperor’s Classics of the Esoteric Talisman, intersections of science and magic, and how practitioners use divination to know and then craft to change.

The second hour will be a hands-on workshop where you will use tarot divination to help you design and craft a Fu sigil, working with Chinese oracle bone script. Fu sigil paper consecrated on 11/11, cut and prepared at 11:11 am, and then consecrated at 11:11 pm will be provided for your use. You can take some home with you to craft the sigil. It is recommended that the final sigil be crafted on the day after the workshop, on the full moon.

For more detailed metaphysical correspondences of the gemstones per my perspective, check out this previously uploaded PDF for a glossary of gemstone correspondences. Find the entry for the stone you picked (or the stone that picked you…) in the PDF if the one-two word correspondence on the yellow card wasn’t clear.

  1. Benebell you’re going to be several miles from my house! That’s so cool just knowing!

    I am on my way to Oregon, otherwise I’d definitely come. I hope you come again, I hope you consider Sebastopol too sometime! Super-open place.

    While you’re here, check out the surrounding rolling hills. The geography reminds me of the goddess herself. Very feminine. Fun to paint too! I’m talking out in the Carneros region (where I live) where it gets rural. Glen Ellen and KENWOOD should be visited. I emphasize Kenwood because it’s really beautiful and I hope you see it!

    Anyway, how exciting! I have Holistic Tarot (I’m halfway through) and I will certainly be ordering your new book!

    Have fun!
