The Science of the Cards

February 10 & 11, 2018    Bellingham, Washington

The Science of the 52 Cards is a powerful tool for self-discovery and inner transformation.  Most students use it initially to help forecast their future, understand their past and unravel the many facets of their human relationships.  However, this system can be used most effectively as a guide to plan and execute many important aspects of our life.  A person fully utilizing the information found in this system can walk forward in life with full confidence, knowing that he or she is in harmony with the universal energies and the cycles of his or her own life.

In this workshop, you will learn about your individual Birth Card and Planetary Ruling Card, your relationship to others, and your life’s plan in the Book of Destiny.  Learn how the 52 cards can help you more clearly define your life’s purpose and how they provide you with a blueprint for continual success.

Bring your life plans and dreams to this class and lets see if we can get you on track to your highest potential. 

Instructor  Caryn Boyd Diel has been a student of this system of divination and card reading for 20 years and studied with author and GrandMaster Robert Lee Camp.  She offers Private readings to individuals on Career, Health, Relationship compatibility and  Yearly life planning.    Tuition $250  9:30 – 5pm daily  Location TBA


The Little Book of the Seven Thunders

Revelations X, Verses 4, 10 and 11

And when the Seven Thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write and I heard a voice saying unto me, “Seal up those things uttered by the Seven Thunders, and write them not.”

And I took the little book from the angel’s hand and devoured it and to my taste it was as sweet as honey; but as soon as I devoured it, it became bitter unto my inside.

And he said unto me, you must prophecy again before many people and nations and tongues and kings.

The Order of the Magi, the brotherhood of astrologers, mystics, and priests of the temples of Egypt, was instructed to keep secret the ancient knowledge of the Seven Thunders (the seven visible planets) and the location of this little book (the cards) until the time when humanity would be of the consciousness to understand of this occult system of knowledge and the true magic of life. The first book, The Mystic Test Book by Olney H. Richmond, was published for the public in 1892 in the USA to reveal the secrets of the little book of knowledge and prophetic wisdom–what we refer to today as our “common” deck of playing cards.

History of the deck of Cards

With its origin over 20,000 years ago in the early days of Atlantis, The Order of the Magi is probably one of the oldest spiritual organizations that has ever existed. No one knows the exact origin of the group, but evidence shows that they have maintained and preserved some of our most valuable and important spiritual sciences. These are the Magi of ancient Egypt and before, those who study the laws of nature and our cosmos, those who know the secrets of our planet as no others do and those who are dedicated to the preservation and sharing of these ancient truths. It has been said that the wise men and prophets written about in the Bible were among its members, even that Jesus himself was one of their ordained and trained leaders. And it is only now that the world is ready for the information that has been kept completely secret for thousands of years. It was in 1894 that the very first book was made public that revealed some of their astounding information.

The Ace of Spades has always been the symbol for this ancient group and that is why, to this day, the Ace of Spades always appears larger in decks of cards throughout the world. The Ace of Spades represents the secrets that lie behind what appears to be the truth. It represents the veil that separates the material and spiritual worlds and the power that we have to make a personal transformation to a higher level of consciousness.


Jade Woman Qigong

  Sunday  April 15th  1-5pm                                                   at Inspire Studio in Bellingham, Washington

* Clear physical and emotional toxins

*Enhance peace and vitality               *Support liver chi

Jade Woman Qigong is a superior method of healing that addresses the special needs of a woman’s body. The phases of a woman’s life require a plentiful supply of blood to as­sure normal gynecological function. Because of these needs, Qigong forms designed for women have a focus that is different from traditional forms.

The form is named Jade Woman because Jade is a highly prized precious stone that, since ancient times, has been regarded as a symbol of yin (female) energy.

This beauti­ful and effective form of Qigong was taught to Instructor Caryn Boyd Diel, by Master Liu He. Jade Woman Qigong was created for and taught to Master Liu He by her grandfather when she was a young girl growing up in China.

This magical qigong form provides great benefit to all women regardless of age or re­productive history, and is also appropriate for men who want to heal liver problems.

You will learn this form as we will practice it several times.  During breaks we will do some simple meditations.  There will be handouts for you and DVDs available on this form, also.

Caryn is a Senior Healing Tao Instructor and has been teaching Seasonal Qigong forms around the world for 20 years.  She plans to teach a Seasonal Qigong form every 3 months at Inspire Yoga Studio.

Tuition is $95  Please call to register and to reserve your space in this class.  You may pay for class on PayPal at   Inspire Studio is on Cornwall st. in Bellingham.  Please come early to find good parking.  Wear comfortable clothing and bring your favorite meditation cushion


What is the benefit of Seasonal Qigong forms?

Humans are Nature.  Our rhythms move naturally with the movement of the sun, moon, (light and dark) planets and stars, tides and rivers, the flowering and fruiting of plants, the movement of animals and birds.  Even the digestion of our foods is dependent on what is available each season.  Everything that we need to know about our world and keeping healthy can be found simply or metaphorically in nature.

Our breath is just right for a human body.  The respiration of a tree is just right for the tree.  Both have consciousness and ways of communicating.  The planet has one breath each year, an inhale and an exhale.  Drawing in chi and letting go of chi as the earth moves on its axis.  The hummingbird has a quick movement, the galaxies a much slower movement.

Qigong movements create a flow of chi through the body and its structure; the meridians.  Each meridian is a river of chi moving between the interior and the exterior of the body, from organs to the extremities and back.  Every organ has it’s season, sound, and color, and time of day.  And therefore we can use qigong to strengthen the organs and our overall health by choosing a movement which recognizes the organ and brings more chi into the organ.  Sound and color produce a quality of chi.  Movement creates a flow of chi.

For example, during the Spring it is a great idea to choose movements that clear and tonify the Liver chi.  Locate the liver and gallbladder meridians and make some movements, or do some stretches and massage for the liver and gallbladder meridians.  Make it fun.  And send some vibrant spring green color from your mind’s eye into the liver and gallbladder to tonify them.  Sounds will break up stagnation and move out stuck chi.  Try the sound Shhhhh and see the old chi moving out of your liver to be recycled by the universe.

Now you have a spontaneous Qigong form.

Each Season/Element has a movement.  Winter/Water brings us to a still point; a place of rest and rejuvenation.  When we give ourselves the gift of stillness our entire being has an opportunity to become refreshed.  Winter Qigong forms that I teach focus on slow movements to open the kidney and bladder meridians, and have longer quiet sitting meditations.  I allow the natural darkness to fill the room.  Pearl of the Night is a Winter Qigong form that I created.  It is very simple and restorative.

Spring/Wood begins the movement upward and outward like the sap rising in the trees, stimulated by the wind moving the woods.  Traditionally we use this time of year to detoxify our bodies.  Nature, and our liver, is pushing chi up and out through branches and meridians.  Qigong forms that stimulate the liver are great for Spring.  I like forms like Swimming Dragon which open the spine and Jade Woman which clears liver chi.
