In this 8-week livestream course, you will embark on a captivating journey into geomancy - a divination art that interprets marks and symbols for guidance. 

Geomancy interprets the arrangement of symbols and figures, created through various techniques such as making marks in sand. By studying the pattern of these marks, you can unveil the answers to a wide range of questions. Geomancy has been renowned for its ability to reveal hidden truths about relationships, health, career prospects, and even uncover the whereabouts of buried treasures.

This method of divination strikes a remarkable balance between simplicity and intricate depth, making it accessible for beginners while offering profound mastery for those who delve further. Over the course of this eight week course, you will develop your ability to use geomancy as a powerful tool for guidance, personal empowerment, and spiritual growth.

Rooted in the belief that the Earth is a living entity with its own wisdom, geomancy was once a tremendously popular form of divination, second only to astrology. Through its history, geomancy has been deeply influenced by astrological methods, earning it the affectionate title of "Astrology's little sister". Regrettably, the practice experienced a decline during the industrial revolution as tastes and fashions changed.

What sets geomancy apart is its remarkable versatility – it can be performed without the need for elaborate tools and is accessible from any location. In moments when extra guidance is sought, geomancy acts as a profound way to access the Earth's ancient wisdom, allowing individuals to make well-informed decisions and navigate their life's journey with a renewed sense of clarity and purpose.

Throughout this course, a balanced blend of theory, practical exercises, and spiritual development will equip participants with the skills to cast and interpret geomantic figures, patterns, and charts. You will start your journey in using geomancy readings for yourself and others, offering valuable guidance and much-needed clarity when navigating life's challenges.
