The Transformational Truth of Tarot Retreat

Lamorna, West Penwith, Cornwall, February 23rd - 26th 2018.



Welcome to a very special weekend in the most ancient Celtic heart of Cornwall 

This untouched ancient land is known as West Penwith, measuring just eight miles across, it is home to no less than five hundred Bronze Age sites. This should give you some hint to it’s incredible magic. One of which is actually on the site we are staying, it’s an incredibly important monument known as the Boleigh Fogou. So important that the BBC came and did a Time Team program on it.

Come Down the Rabbit Hole!

 

 

LIKE THE TAROT, THE BOLEIGH FOGOU IS STEEPED IN HISTORY, NO-ONE KNOWS EXACTLY HOW OR WHEN IT CAME ABOUT, BUT IT’S MAGIC AND MYSTERY PULL YOU INTO A VORTEX AND TRANSFORM YOU.

As well as the Boleigh Fogou on the actual grounds, The Michael Ley Line that runs through St Michael’s Mount passes right through Rosemerryn. Plus, there are two stone circles which encompass the land surrounding Rosemerryn, the central stone of one is made of quartz. These are all incredibly ancient and unfathomable energies, all we know is...

 

People leave Rosemerryn different, transformed, a page has turned, a chapter has been opened and a new life has begun, and people love to come back and do it again and again, embracing the magic, mystery and wonder of knowing that their life will never be the same.

Would You like to Open the Door to the Magic?

  • Are you someone that has always had an interest in Tarot and self-development?
  • Are you eager to go deeper?
  • Does the sound of starting a new commitment to your spiritual journey on a whole deeper level whilst being held in circle, within stone circles appeal to you?

If this isn’t you, you would be better off booking a mini-retreat that you can tailor-make for yourself here.

Otherwise, read on...

The Transformational Truth of Tarot Retreat.

Lamorna, West Penwith, Cornwall, February 23rd - 26th 2018.

 

Whether you have arrived via the (almost!) luxurious overnight sleeper train, plane or automobile you will know you have arrived when everything stops, it goes no further, the plane, the train or the automobile, as well as your phone mobile!

Rosemerryn is nestled only a few miles in from Lands End, the local bookshop is called "The End of The World" and boy don't you feel it.

High rise blocks are replaced only by the no less than five hundred pre historic stone age, bronze age, megallitic sites - impressive for an 8 mile across tip toe of land.

Phonelines are replaced by ley lines, ancient energetic lines of power that cross through the land from St Michael's Mount, right through the fogou and beyond.

If you didn't come in an automobile then once the plane or train has dropped you off you'll need a taxi, and not just any taxi, as not just any taxi knows that Rosemerryn exists.

As your taxi drives you through the corkscrew twists and turns of the rich fairyglen rainforest that is Lamorna valley, you enter the peak density of the sites and leylines, as you do so your phone reception will crash completely.

There is now no outer connection, it's just you, nature and your supernature. But don't worry, we know how to handle this! Tiffany has run retreats here many a time, no-one ever disappeared, got lost or wanted to run away, infact, it's been quite the opposite, they find themselves and want to come back!

When you arrive, there will be a very warm welcome, with a log fire, and the host's incredible Lemon Poppy cake that everyone raves about - don't worry, we will save you a piece!

Then it's bedding down for the weekend. The energy here means the outer world no longer exists. It feels like the world and time has stood still and all that exists is us in an incredibly enchanting bolthole.

The energies at Rosmerryn run deep, you won't be able to run, and you will go deep, but don't worry I promise you the exercises are limited to tarot and transformation work, with no nakednesss or weird rituals in sight :-)

 

The Transformational Truth of Tarot Retreat is already pretty much full, in fact we have room for just FOUR very important people, who we would love to open our doors to meet! 

 The reason this retreat is already pretty much full is because this isn’t just a one-off retreat. This retreat COMES with a whole bigger, six month journey, I already have a really wonderful group on that path, by saying yes to this retreat you would be effectively saying yes to a whole larger journey of six months transformation - and boy what a way to declare to the universe that you mean business! 

The Transformational Truth of Tarot is an incredibly deep and intimate experience, and the group is like gold.

 The amount of value each and every member has for every other member in the group astounds me, but that’s the journey of the Tarot for you. You can’t hide. You are seen completely. And from this, there is no defence left, only standing naked (symbolically speaking!) in your truth, being seen, witnessed and loved for it. The transformation in this course is incredibly powerful and the energies here, at Rosemerryn are incredibly powerful, so if you are just interested in dabbling for a few days, then this isn’t the retreat for you.

If however, you are excited by the thought of making a new level of commitment to your self-discovery and you feel excited about joining an incredibly safe and supportive group then read on.

So just to make it really crystal clear, this is not a stand-alone retreat, you want this, then the whole six month journey comes with it. Therefore, we are looking for someone who wants to embark upon the WHOLE journey of The Transformational Truth of Tarot.

Okay, So You Think and Feel This Might Just Be What You’ve Been Waiting For?

 

 

Then Let’s Get with the program!

friday 23rd FEBRUARY:

 

4- 5pm: Sunset Tour of the Grounds and Boleigh Fogou.

We will need to leave promptly because the Sun will set at 5:48pm and there are no lights in the woods (except that of the Moon, and it will be growing full in Taurus, but even so!). If you can’t make it in time, that is understandable, and there will be a member of staff at the house in case you arrive whilst we are out.

We will need to leave promptly because the Sun will set at 5:48pm and there are no lights in the woods (except that of the Moon, and it will be growing full in Taurus, but even so!). If you can’t make it in time, that is understandable, and there will be a member of staff at the house in case you arrive whilst we are out.


6 - 7:30pm: Dinner.

Dinner will be vegetarian, please let us know if you have any other dietary requirements.

7:30pm: Log Fire Circle.

We start our circle by building a strong space of connecting with ourselves, each other and the Tarot in a series of fun exercises designed to get you thinking! Here we think about what we want in terms of what we want to bring to the space and what we want to receive from it, and form an equal co-collective to go get it! We also find out what card is calling for us to sleep with it that night!

9:00pm: Free Time.

There is a pub 15 minutes walk away that you can get to (if you have a torch!). If you have a car then you are spoilt for choice with places to visit, Mousehole and St Ives come highly recommended. Otherwise, there is Wi-Fi, and spiritual board games that people love to play, or maybe you just want to crash in your beautiful boudoir.

Saturday 24th February:

 

8:30 - 9:30am: Breakfast.

We will have an array of delights prepared for you, fresh green, orange or red juice of some kind! Or NutriBullets of your request, fresh fruit, yogurt, muesli, cereal or porridge, eggs and fabulously toasted crumpets from the Aga! Yum!

9:30 - 10:00am - Free Time.

This is the time for you to stretch your legs around the grounds, for some fresh invigorating February air! Don’t forget to pack your wellies!

10:30 - 11:30am: Opening Circle, Checking In and Getting Started.

Here we check in with ourselves, each other, and the Tarot. How are you doing? Who do you think you are in the cards today? Who do others think you are in the cards today?

11:30am - 12:00 noon: Building Trust in Partnerships.

You’ll just have to trust me on this one!

 

12:30 -1:30pm: How It Feels To Guide From Spirit Exercise.

And this one!

 

1:00 - 2:30pm: Lunch and Free Time.


2:30 - 3:30pm: Connections in Partners with The Tarot and Feedback.

This is where myself and Aldo see you in action and give you hands-on help to give you a leg-up to the next level of your Tarot practice. It doesn’t matter if you are completely new to the Tarot, wherever you are at with your practice we can help you.

3:30 - 4:00pm: Tea Break.

These ladies escaped and were caught red-handed having a proper Cornish Cream Tea! Each to their own!

4:00 - 5:30pm: Going Deeper With The Tarot and Each Other.

By this time in the course you will have started to really bond with each other, which now means it’s time to go to the next level down, how to build rapport, manage misunderstandings, misaligned expectations and the complexities of communication.

5:30 - 6pm: Feedback, identify the card that wants to sleep with you tonight, give thanks and closing circle.


Day one is quite gentle, light and fun, you may still be recovering from the actual physical journey, and acclimatising to each other and the powerful energy here, so we take it easy on you!

However, the Moon growing full now in Gemini, will probably mean you are going to feel high! And want to chat the night away with each other, so...

Dinner: We only provide dinner on the first night of arrival, if you have a car you will be spoilt for choice, otherwise you will need to rely on The Lamorna Wink (good little local, freshly modernised), The Cove (expensive hotel) or Lamorna Pottery (quirky little B&B cafe place) being open down the road - don’t forget your torch! Alternatively, people get together and hire taxis, or bring food with them, there is a fridge in the lounge for this purpose.

Freetime: Pub, Wi-Fi, or I bring my Transformation Games and Gift of Enlightenment for people that want to carry on the self-development in a fun social way into the evening. Or, of course there’s always your bed if you really do feel the need to properly retreat, then that’s also exactly what this time is here for.

Sunday 25th February:

 

8:30 - 9:30am: Breakfast.

We will have an array of delights prepared for you, fresh green, orange or red juice of some kind! Or NutriBullets of your request, fresh fruit, yogurt, muesli, cereal or porridge, eggs and fabulously toasted crumpets from the Aga! Yum!

9:30 - 10:00am: Free Time.

This is the time for you to stretch your legs around the grounds, for some fresh invigorating February air! Don’t forget to pack your wellies!

10:30 - 11:30am: Opening Circle, Checking In and Getting Started.

Here we check in with ourselves, each other, and the Tarot. How are you doing? Who do you think you are in the cards today? Who do others think you are in the cards today?

11:30am: Vulnerability Exercise, Embracing The Whole of Who We Are.

This is an extremely deep exercise, where you will go into your deepest, darkest fear, and bring it out into the light, stepping out of your own closet and stepping into the beauty and glory of the whole of you. As I said, this work goes deep, we are a safe circle to do that in, and that’s why it’s important we chat with you before we let you on.

1:00 - 2:30pm: Lunch and Free Time.

2:30 - 3:30pm: Supporting Ourselves and Others Through Tough Experiences with Tarot.

People often come to Tarot when they have something tough going on in their lives, they look to it for solace, but the Tarot is a mirror. How do you handle that?

3:30 - 4:00pm: Tea Break.

These two escaped, and were caught having a cheeky ciggy in the garden! Each to their own!

 

4:00 - 5:00pm: Feedback.

The end of day two is the end of an incredibly powerful day. You will have gone so incredibly deep within, with each other, and with the Tarot that you’ll begin to know what exactly your commitment to your path is all about, your purpose and path to embrace will have been revealed. You’ll be preparing to declare to the universe that you are ready to step into it, when we do our new dawn of a new day sunrise ritual the next morning.

5:30 - 6pm: Identify the card that wants to sleep with you tonight, give thanks, reflect on the day and preparation for The New Dawn, New Day, Sunrise Merry Maiden Invocation.

What with all this and the Moon now in Cancer, you may well be feeling the need for a nurturing early night. Give yourself permission to have the space on this retreat to do whatever you need to look after your needs and wants.

6pm onwards: FreeTime.

Monday 26th February:

 

6:30 - 7:30am: Sunrise Merry Maiden Invocation.


8:30 - 9:30am: Breakfast.

We will have an array of delights prepared for you, fresh green, orange or red juice of some kind! Or NutriBullets of your request, fresh fruit, yogurt, muesli, cereal or porridge, eggs and fabulously toasted crumpets from the Aga! Yum!

9:30 - 10:00am: Free Time.

Time for you to say your last goodbyes to the grounds - until, hopefully, next time.

10:00 - 11:00am: Closing Circle.

It’s time to just come together to honour each other, the space and what happened with it, to mark what you want to leave behind, and what you want to take with you, and to bless yourself and each other on your ongoing journey.

11:00am: Departure for Your Onward Journey.

Emotions run high at the end of such a deep time spent together, yet...

It’s not really the end, you will continue on the path together through The Transformational Truth of Tarot journey and onwards, your bonds live on.

 

 

Meet Your Tutors:

Tiffany Crosara and Aldo Raffa:

Tiffany Is The Multi Award Winning Author and creator of the book and program: The Transformational Truth of Tarot, she met Aldo Raffa when they both worked for Psychic Today on Sky 886 giving readings.

Tiffany had already written the book, got published and won the awards but, something was missing. It took her a year or so to find it, and then she walked into the office and exclaimed “I’m not a reader!” Much to the bewilderment of management that looked at her as if she’d flipped her lid! Their mouths silent, their jaws open, but their faces said it all “yes you are! We’ve watched you do it over and over again!”

“I’m not a reader, I am a teacher, and that has to happen, or I have to leave.”

Now, Tiffany had already taught, a lot. She had been teaching Tarot and all other means of psychic and self-development for years, but what she meant was that she had found where her heart was and she had to follow it, so follow it she did. Two months later The Transformational Truth of Tarot program was born, this is her signature program, her absolute pride and joy just like her friendship with Aldo.

Aldo had been reading on TV ever since he was eighteen. But when Aldo met Tiffany he became aware that something needed to change, and change it did. They both lead separate paths in their new found freedom, but their depth of connection always brings them back together along the way to create magic. This photo was taken at their joint launch in October 2015, when Tiffany published her second book The Transformational Truth of You, and Aldo released his own Tarot deck, The Raffa Tarot. Tiffany and Aldo are currently working on a joint project for release hopefully in the new year, maybe even in time for this retreat!

 

Meet A Couple of Former Transformers!

 

Jess’s Testimonial:

Jess Brass, Artist, West Sussex.
 

Caroline’s Testimonial:

Caroline Blinco, Cornwall County Constabulary.

Meet The Support Staff/ Boddhisatvas!

Emma Wilding:

Emma is a qualified counsellor and NLP practitioner (amongst other things!), and has a gorgeously gentle and empathic nature. Emma had a huge transformation on the course, she knows the value this journey has had for her, and loves being able to witness and support everyone going on their journey, we are very lucky to have her. If you need a bit of gentleness along the way Emma is here for you.


Harriet Evans:

Harriet holds the support role along with Emma. Both Harriet and Emma became support staff when I saw their dedicated devotion to the path. They have both completed the course to an outstanding level and felt deeply transformed by it. They know the ups and downs and ins and outs of it - inside out. Basically they are Boddhisatvas! (Enlightened Buddhas that have stayed behind to help everyone else reach enlightenment!)

Harriet is an incredibly loyal and generous soul, being a Virgo she is dutiful to the end. Harriet came on The Transformational Truth of Tarot at a unique time, one group was ending, and another did not start until she had ended. She received HUGE support from the group that was ending - and then she pretty much had to do the journey alone. I was there, as was Emma and a few others, but she was the only one actively walking through the landscape of the Tarot at the time.

Harriet was so bowled over by the support she received from the members that she felt a strong need to give it back to the new members joining, little did she know when she started, that obviously was all part of the divine’s plan all along! Now, that is what she does! The group has bloomed and blossomed, and this continues to warm her heart more and more everyday.

Here’s Harriet!

INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL:

 

I HAVE HAD MANY STUDENTS COME FROM OTHER COUNTRIES TO ATTEND, EVEN SOME AS FAR AS CANADA, THE USA AND AUSTRALIA. THEY TEND TO TURN IT INTO A TRIP OF A LIFETIME, FLYING INTO LONDON, SEEING THE SIGHTS OF STONEHENGE, GLASTONBURY AND THE FANTASTIC ROMAN CITY OF BATH ON THEIR WAY, IF THEY RENT A CAR, OR JUST AN OVERNIGHT STOP IN BATH IF THEY WANT TO BREAK UP THE SIX HOUR JOURNEY INTO TWO.

IF YOU PREFER, CATCH A CONNECTING FLIGHT FROM LONDON TO NEWQUAY, THAT TAKES AN HOUR INSTEAD OF SIX, AND THEN PICK UP A CAR, OR THE TRAIN FOR THE LAST HOUR.

NATIONAL TRAVEL:

 

YOU CAN CATCH A COACH OR A TRAIN FROM MANY CITIES IN BRITAIN TO PENZANCE - PZ IS SURPRISINGLY WELL-CONNECTED (BUT YOU MIGHT NEED A GOOD BOOK TO READ ON THE WAY AS IT’S FAR FAR AWAY!).

YOU CAN ALSO DRIVE DOWN THE M5 AND A30 (OR, FROM LONDON, THE M3, A303 AND A30).

IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE THOUGHT OF A LONG JOURNEY YOU CAN BOOK A SLEEPER TRAIN AND SLEEP THROUGH IT - JUST BE SURE TO BOOK A BERTH! I’VE HAD PEOPLE NOT REALISE THAT IF THEY DON’T DO THAT, THEN THEY WON’T GET A CABIN!

OR FLY INTO NEWQUAY AIRPORT TO SAVE 5 HOURS AND THEN PICK UP A TRAIN OR A CAR FROM THERE.

IF YOU GET THE TRAIN, STAY ON TIL THE LAST STOP, PENZANCE - AND THEN YOU’LL NEED TO GET A TAXI FOR THE LAST BIT (15 MINUTES), EVEN THE TRAIN DOESN’T GO AS FAR AS WE GO!

AND ONLY CERTAIN TAXIS ARE IN THE KNOW TOO!

SO, WE WILL LET YOU KNOW WHICH ONE TO GET, BECAUSE ONCE YOU ENTER THE LAMORNA VALLEY ALL YOUR RECEPTION GOES, ZILCH SIGNAL, BOOM, IT’S GONE! NO TELEPHONE BOX, NO SHOPS, ONLY A PUB WITH ERRATIC OPENING TIMES, AND THE FEBRUARY SEA FOG MEANS WE NEED TO LOOK AFTER YOU!


HE WHOLE PACKAGE as we said, if you are looking for just a fun weekend away, this isn’t it!

This is a whole journey, taken over 20 weeks, known as The Fool’s Journey, similar to Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, it takes you through all the nooks and crannies of your soul, so that you can turn your karmic wound into your blessing, and that is The Transformational Truth of Tarot.

Here is what the journey looks like over the twenty weeks and how you start to develop:

WEEK 1:

  • Activation and connection to your soul through working with the divine archetypes of The Fool, The Magician and The High Priestess.
  • Mental reset: Judgment, how to become awake to it, the importance of being awake to it and how to turn it around, release the blockages and let the communication and heart flow.
  • Storytelling: How to start coming out of the mind and trusting in the flow.

WEEK 2:

  • Review of your time with your Fool, Magician and High Priestess, and what messages have they brought for you about who you are, and the way your life wishes to go.
  • Activation and connection to your soul through working with the divine archetypes of The Empress, The Emperor and The High Priest.

WEEK 3:

  • Review of your time with your Empress, Emperor and High Priest, what messages have they brought for you about who you are, and your life?
  • Activation and connection to your soul through working with the divine archetypes of The Lovers, Chariot and Strength.

WEEK 4:

  • Review of your time with your inner Lovers, Chariot and Strength. What messages have they brought for you about who you are, and your life?
  • Activation and connection to your soul through working with the divine archetypes of The Hermit, Wheel of Fortune and Justice.

END OF FIRST CYCLE: By now you’ll be feeling:

  • More understanding and acceptance of yourself, others and your life than you ever had before.
  • More trust in the bigger picture and divine plan - therefore knowing the universe has your back.
  • The confidence and strength to be yourself and communicate your truth lovingly to others.
  • The ability to see the divine at work - without a doubt.
  • Increased ability to see through situations straight to the heart of a matter.
  • Strong insights, intuition and ‘aha’ moments.
  • Wonder at the magic happening in your life.

WEEK 5:

  • Review of your time with your inner Hermit, Wheel and Justice, what messages have they brought for you about who you are, and your life?
  • Activation and connection to your soul through working with the divine archetypes of The Hanged Man, Death and Temperance.

WEEK 6:

  • Review of your time with the divine archetypes of your inner Hanged Man, Death and Temperance. What messages have they brought for you about who you are, and your life?
  • Activation and connection to your soul through working with the divine archetypes of The Devil, Tower and Star.

WEEK 7:

  • Review of your time with the divine archetypes of your inner Devil, Tower and Star. What messages have they brought for you about who you are, and your life?
  • Activation and connection to your soul through working with the divine archetypes of The Moon, Sun, Judgment and The World.

WEEK 8:

  • Review of your time with the divine archetypes of your inner Moon, Sun, Judgment and World. What messages have they brought for you about who you are, and your life?
  • Activation and connection to your soul through working with the divine archetypes of The Minor Arcana.
  • Welcome to the world of The Swords, the journey through your mind.

END OF SECOND CYCLE:

By now the feelings activated in the first month will have doubled. The relationship to yourself, others and the universe will be significantly improving through increased understanding, inspiration and acceptance - this will be in alignment to your own truth by the way, and you may be feeling that you cannot tolerate any situation that is not in alignment to that. This is the first step to really creating a life that is transformationally true for you. You’ll have increased confidence, value and faith to see you through.

WEEK 14:

  • Bringing in communication structures to support your change in the external world.

WEEK 15:

  • Let’s find out how your values have changed, what that means in regards to your happiness, your purpose and your service.

WEEK 16:

  • Time to value what you have learnt, or ‘go-pro’ if you want to - either way I’m sure you want to be your absolute best? This is the time to be it.

WEEK 17:

  • The spiritual journey of being an ethical guiding light for others - what to expect and how to protect.

WEEK 18:

  • How to get through the challenges of being a professional in a misunderstood occupation - whether it’s how the authorities see it, or how the clients see it.

END OF FIFTH CYCLE:

  • If you have actioned the content, you will be charging for readings - even if you never saw yourself doing this, or thought that you would want to. If you have pushed through any resistance and thought what the heck! You’ll be surprised at what you manifest.

WEEK 19:

  • The pros and cons of having such a flexible career, let’s explore the set-ups and what’s good for you.

WEEK 20:

  • Passing on the knowledge acquired from doing literally thousands of readings - learn from it!
  • But it requires you to step off the cliff!

the Fool

END OF SIXTH CYCLE:

  • This is where the external transformation really happens as you allow yourself to walk away from anything that no longer fulfils you, or isn’t in alignment with your truth, because now you not only feel you can, you know.
  • One last word from Sheila!
