THE TRANSFORMATIONAL TRUTH OF TAROT
STONE CIRCLE WINTER SOLSTICE RETREAT

Lamorna, West Penwith, Cornwall,
18th - 21st December 2020

“Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.

Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of seperation.

Let there be spaces in your togetherness.

Yesterday is but today's memory, and tomorrow is today's dream."  ― Khalil Gibran

AFTER MUCH REARRANGING DIVINE TIMING HAS PLACED THIS RETREAT ON THE  WINTER SOLSTICE - CLIMAXING WITH A SUNRISE STONE CIRCLE INVOCATION 

So…

Dear Goddess. 

Welcome to a very special winter solstice weekend in the ancient heartland of Cornwall...

HOW PERFECT!

If we ever needed some down time to process a year, rest, reflect and reset  it’s this time right?


And here's how we are going to do it...

Rest assured we will be following government guidelines, all rooms will have single occupancy, .and if we cannot go ahead you have paid to secure your place will get refunded or transferred.


WEST PENWITH… LAND OF THE GODDESS

Cornwall has one of the most intensive prehistoric landscapes in Britain, and the tiny peninsula of Penwith has the highest amount of megaliths in Western Europe.


This ancient untouched land buzzes from no less than five hundred Bronze Age sites.

One of which is here at Rosemerryn. The Boleigh Fogou.

So important the BBC did a Time Team program on it.

In a mound in the garden, half hidden amongst bluebells, ferns and foxgloves, the Boleigh Fogou lays, considered to be one of the best remaining monuments in Cornwall. This iron-age man made underground cave has survived 2000 years. The word 'fogou' is derived from the Cornish word for cave – fogou - and indeed these fantastic constructions do not occur anywhere else in England.

There is much debate about the original purpose of the fogou. Some believe they were ancient grain stores, others housing for cattle. Yet another theory purports that they were used as hiding places, and certainly there is some recorded evidence that the Boleigh Fogou may have given shelter to Royalists hiding from Cromwell’s followers in the 17th century.

However there are many good reasons why an underground cave would not really be suitable for any of these purposes, and many people believe that the fogou contributed far more to the spiritual rather than the practical life of the community it served. It is thought that birth and death rituals might have been carried out in the fogou, that it might have been used for initiation and spiritual ceremonies.

Now many people visit the fogou to experience for themselves the tremendous power it holds, and feel the presence of the ancestors of this ancient land.

I have been holding initiation ceremonies in the fogou for a decade and can personally vouch for it's rebirthing qualities - every time I know a page has turned, and a new chapter has begun for each and everyone who decides to join us.

As well as the Boleigh Fogou, we have the Michael and Mary Ley Lines running right through from nearby St Michael’s Mount. 

Plus, two circles a “stone’s” throw away (excuse the pun!) and many standing stones - that you can’t throw as they are made of big chunks of granite encrusted in quartz! 

The earth energies here are profound, you are connecting with the great earth goddess herself, and the process she facilitates for you is rebirth.

Ready to draw a line under 2020 and Open the Door to the Magic in 2021?

Are you someone that has always had an interest in Tarot and self-development?

 

Would you like to learn the transformational power of the Tarot in a deeply magical place?

Does the sound of spending a weekend away with soulsisters appeal to you?

Let’s Begin!

 

FRIDAY: ARRIVE

 

4 - 4:30pm: Arrival.

The connection begins when you enter Lamorna valley and the connection to your phone just dies! The Goddess just won’t have you being on your phone when you are with her! Although Rosemerryn isn’t easy to find without reception we’ve never lost someone yet ( I’ve ran retreats here for a decade) so look after her and she looks after you! I will be waiting to welcome you with a warm toasty log fire, homemade lemon poppy seed cake and a nice brew :) smiling at the strength of your “super- natural” power which has already powered up.

 

4:30pm: Sunset Tour of the Grounds and Boleigh Fogou.

The magical acres of Rosemerryn are drenched in fairyland magic, at any time, we've given you a heads up about the leylines and 500 Megaliths that pack the tiny peninsula of Penwith, but it's not until you experience it that you truly can believe the power that plugs into you when you place your feet on the land.

 

6 - 7:30pm: Dinner.

Dinner! The photo below was taken before social distancing!  Rest assured we have the social distancing requirements under control but please let us know if you have dietary requirements, we are used to catering for vegan and gluten-free guests. 

 

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!

What do want to bring to the space and what do you want to receive? We form an equal co-collective to go get it, and 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: DAY 1 - REFLECT

 

8:30 - 9:30am: Breakfast.

Due to restrictions we will take your order beforehand and give you table service. We will have an array of delights for you, fresh green, orange or red juice of some kind! NutriBullets at 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 connect to the great goddess found in the ancient earth of these grounds, don’t forget to pack your wellies!

 

10:00 - 10:45 am: Opening Circle, Checking In and Getting Started.

Let’s start your day The Transformational Truth of Tarot way - you’ll receive a workbook to document your journey every step of the way and help you form a habit of daily spiritual practice going forward.  

 

TEABREAK- 10:45

 

11:15 - 12:45 pm: 2020 - See the Bigger Picture In Your 2020.

In this session you will learn how to:

  1. See the bigger picture of your month by month story of 2020.
  2. Integrate the lessons of each month and come to peace as you clearly see the universe's reason behind it - incredibly powerful for realigning, healing and rectifying.
  3. As you do so you’ll find the gift in 2020 an see the seed that comes from that with so much clarity that you know with certainty what to plant in 2021!

 

12:45 - 1:15pm: Lunch and free time.

We like to give you a long lunch so you can stretch your legs on one of the many beautiful walks, retire to your room to recharge, or simply enjoy each other with no agenda, after all this is a retreat, and yes we are learning but we are aware we want you to come away feeling filled up on every front, that means we take into consideration the important balance of work, rest and play, and mind, body and spirit.

 

1:15 - Checking in and feedback circle

 

1:45 - 3:15 pm: Your Transformational Letter To The “YOUniverse” 

Now you’ve seen the divine’s reasoning behind your year it’s time to take yourself off to reflect, review and reconcile with the bigger picture, pour your heart out to the universe, and give yourself permission to not hold back! 

Get it all out, all the things that broke your heart, tore you apart, as well as all the gifts and gems you found, and where you are with it now you’ve seen inside the greater plan behind it all.

 

3:30 - 4pm - teabreak: 

 

4 - 5pm  - Catharsis

Coming back for today’s final feedback round. What was it that came up for you and what one song would you like to play incredibly loudly and thrash it out to?

 

We are spoilt with a gorgeous big hall, rocking sound system and no neighbours for miles! Giving real space to get it right on out and move! (Even with social distancing! ) Get ready for some deep and powerful catharsis! All too often I have been on retreats that do not encompass getting up and moving and come away feeling more drained than recharged. Not here! 

 

5:30 pm - closing log fire circle. Where are you landing now? What card wants to connect with you tonight?

 

5:45 Freetime: 

7pm Dinner: Provided in, or out, we encoruage you honour your own rhythm, we can cater for you,  bring you famous Newlyn Harbour fresh fish and chips or who knows maybe we can even venture out to the medieval meadery in a bubble!

 

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: DAY 2 - RESET

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, yoghurt, muesli, cereal or porridge, eggs and fabulously toasted crumpets from the Aga! Yum! Orders will be taken for table service.

 

 9:30 - 10:00am: Free Time.

Time for you to connect to the great goddess found in the ancient earth of these grounds once again, before we start with the really exciting part! 

 

10:00 - 10:45 am: Opening Circle, Checking In and Getting Started.

Start your day The Transformational Truth of Tarot way - you’ll receive a workbook to document your journey every step of the way and help you form a habit of daily spiritual practice going forward.  

 

TEABREAK- 10:45

 

11:00 - 12:30pm: Plant Your 2021!

It’s time to plant your intention for 2021 month by month and find out if the universe agrees with it, or not! And if not how and what to do to get into co-creative alignment. This part especially is powerful for realigning and rectifying.

Next, comes the translation through Astrology opening up a whole other world of mindblowing understanding.

You’ll come out of this with a crystal clear month by month vision for what you want that’s in alignment with both you and the universe and has the best chance of manifesting!

 

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

We like to give you a long lunch so you can stretch your legs on one of the many beautiful walks, retire to your room to recharge, or simply enjoy each other with no agenda, after all this is a retreat, and yes we are learning but we are aware we want you to come away feeling filled up on every front, that means we take into consideration the important balance of work, rest and play, and mind, body and spirit.

 

1:15pm: Ground and Anchor Your Vision @ Boscowan Un Stone Circle.

 First, you’ll get your month by month creation anchored in your diary for 2021 and then we’ll do a pilgrimage to Boscowan Un.

 

The energy here  is something else. I lived in this land for several years and visited many of the megaliths and this one is by far my favourite. The energy is high and totally grounding all at the same time. Maybe it's to do with it being an ancient sundial aligned to Stonehenge? I don’t know! I only know Boscowan Un recharges you like no other site I know! So let’s ground in your intention for 2021!

 

3:15 pm: Letter To Your Future You. 

Now you’ve written your aligned co-creative vision and the universe’s vision in your 2021 diary, and ground it in at one of the best stone circles I know. It’s time to grab some tea and cake back at the house, and once again take yourself off this time to envisage, create and birth who you are becoming into the world. You’ll be writing a letter to this person you are becoming - dating it 20th December 2021, and giving it to me to send to you so you receive it on that very date, so breathe it in, and align it to the pact you and the universe have made today for your true realignment and rebirth of the you that gives you peace and fulfilment. 

 

4 - 5pm  - Celebration!

Now we come back together for a final feedback round. What was it that came up for you? And what one song would you like to play loud as your invocation song to the universe, birthing rite and celebration of your 2021 intention and vision? Let’s do it!

 

5 - 5:30 pm: Reflection and closing circle:

Identify the card that wants to sleep with you tonight, give thanks, reflect on the day and preparation for your rebirth day tomorrow, with the Solstice Sunrise Merry Maiden Invocation.

 

6 pm onwards: Dinner and FreeTime.

 

MONDAY: DAY 3 - REBIRTH

7:30 - 8:30am: 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, yoghurt   , muesli, cereal or porridge, eggs and fabulously toasted crumpets from the Aga! Yum! Table service.  

 

8:30 - 9:30 am: Sunrise Solstice Invocation

As the sun rises so do you, coming to the centre of yourself and your universe you declare what you are rebirthing into for the return of the sun, your soul, and the light with the group, stones and rising sun to witness your new you rebirthing into the world:

 

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.

 

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

 

11:00 am: 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 though, you have the choice...

And the chance to continue on the path together through Tiffany's community and onwards, your bonds live on;

IF YOU DECIDE TO BECOME A THE TRANSFORMATIONAL TRUTH OF TAROT GOD/DESS AT THE END THEN THE PRICE OF YOUR RETREAT WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM THE PROGRAM!


IS THIS RETREAT FOR YOU?


IF YOU LIKE THE SOUND OF BEING "LOCKED DOWN" IN A MAGICAL BOLT HOLE WITH WONDERFULLY WITCHY SOUL SISTERS BUBBLING UP SOME PRACTICAL MAGIC WITH TRANSFORMATIVE TAROT TO COOK UP A DIFFERENT WORLD FOR YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE OF 2020 THEN ...

These are powerful and unfathomable energies, all we know is..

  • 1. The elemental energies are so strong here you’ll feel so connected to your intuition you’ll wonder if it’s real!
  • 2. The energies deeply support connection and transformation, supporting you to go much further and deeper than you have possibly ever experienced before.
  • 3. You leave different, transformed, a page has turned, a new chapter opens and a new life begins. 
  • 4. You go back into the world reborn ready to embrace the mystery and wonder of knowing that your life will never be the same. 

And you'll want to come back and do it again and again!

MEET YOUR TUTOR
TIFFANY CROSARA

Tiffany came across Rosemerryn in 2009 when looking for a venue to have her handfasting - and has been holding retreats ever since. 

Having lived in this part of Cornwall for  she knows just how powerful West Penwith is,  her time here is when she's  most psychic - and others say the same.

It was here she wrote the award-winning ‘The Transformational Truth of Tarot’  which opened  a string of awards, a TV career, and international speaking.

Tiffany left Cornwall in 2015, but Rosemerryn keeps calling her back, just like it does with everyone whose ever been there, why? Come and see for yourself!

TESTIMONIALS
 
“The healing energy of the sea and stone circles is very powerful, I can’t find the words to describe it. I recently finished The Transformational Truth of Tarot and it was incredible to meet my soul sisters in the flesh and so special to give gratitude for what has been an incredible transformational time in my life.” - Angela Campbell - UK
“Words cannot convey the emotions experienced! I felt at home right from the start, meeting my fellow sisters that I had been journeying with was profound, the strength of connection and depth was everywhere, I felt like I had come home, and I came away with so much more confidence inmyself and my abilities.” - Susan Breakenbridge -Scotland
"Never before have I felt such profound healing from land. The energy of the house is so powerful I ended up manifesting exactly what I intended on the very first evening together. My only unfulfilled wish is that it could have been longer! “ - Sophie LeFevre, Belgium.
“I know “reborn” can seem cliche but it’s a truly apt description in the transformation of shedding anger and baggage I have carried for years. Plus it didn’t leave me when I left. I’ve had a genuine life-changing profound sustainable transformation. I had to fly from the USA to be here and I'm so glad I did” - Tim Toma - USA
Okay, So You Think and Feel This Might Just Be What You’ve Been Waiting For?

Then Let’s Get on to the REALLY Exciting Part!

 

 

International Travel:

Students come from other countries to attend, even some as far as Canada, the USA and Australia.  Turning it into a trip of a lifetime, flying into London, seeing the sights of Stonehenge, Glastonbury and the fantastic Roman City of Bath (where Tiffany lives now) 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 you can 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! If you don’t do that, then they won’t get a cabin and will have to sleep in a chair - eek!

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!

Only certain taxis are in the know! 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! Don't worry, we haven't lost anyone yet!
