Hey loved listeners,
I hope you are finding some small comforts in Taurus season! I’m back after a virtual breathwork training last weekend and am feeling a bit more grounded and steady. In May I’ll be offering a really simple, affordable group program called Unravel, which combines breathwork, journaling and ritual to explore grief. It’ll be available to all Patreons and you can become one here: https://www.patreon.com/daydreamingwolves– more details soon! The Embodied Business Community is also still open for enrolment and has a new payment plan that costs $24/month, you can learn more here: https://yarrowdigital.com/diy-business-school/
I hope you’ll enjoy today’s episode, which is a really interesting conversation with the wonderful Benebell Wen. If you’re into tarot and would like to hear a different perspective grounded in deep research and wild curiosity this might be for you <3 Here is some of what we talked about:
- Making friends with the tarot and experiencing it as an ally for decision making and growth
- Psychology in tarot, seeking proof and engaging our rational mind
- Writing a book and staying committed to the creative process
- Sigil making and the tao of craft
Benebell Wen is a practitioner of various metaphysical arts. She studies tarot, feng shui, the I Ching, numerology, and both Chinese and Hellenisic astrology. She is the author of Holistic Tarot: An Integrative Approach to Using Tarot for Personal Growth and Tao of Craft: Fu Talismans and Casting Sigils in the Eastern Esoteric Tradition. When not lecturing, teaching or writing on metaphysics, Wen practices law in California and New York. She is of Taiwanese descent and currently lives in Northern California with her husband James and their beloved cat.

Leaning into ritual, being a lover of the wild and making my own magic has helped me through all kinds of tough stuff, which is why I am so passionate about sharing what I’ve found here.
