Excellent training and its fun! I call it “edutainment.”
This is one of my favorite exercises in the Advanced Training for students seeking Voyager Reader’s Certification. It’s innovative, intuitive, interactive, insightful!
This is a great process to see how others see you and how you see yourself.
Gather a small group (around 4-6). Place one Deck in the middle. Everyone in the group picks as many cards as there are in the group (eg. four people in a group, so everyone picks four cards); If you pick a negative card, you can put it back in the pile and pick another. Determine intuitively which card in your hand is you, and then figure out a card for each person in the group. Go around the group and gift each other the card you have chosen for them and explain why.
Tell Your Story
With the cards you now have in your hand (your own card and the cards given to you), form these cards into some kind of symbolic alignment that tells your story. Once everyone has determined that, go around the circle and present your story, card by card. Give your story a memorable title!
This process is called the “Whole Group Profile.” Compose a human body of all the cards the group has used. Place all Wands cards at top for crown chakra. Place all Crystals under in the head/mental position. Under the head in the chest and heart, place all the Cups cards. Make some legs for this body with all the Worlds Cards. Then place the female Major Archetype cards for the left arm and the masculine Majors for the right arm. For those neutral Majors, place them wherever on the body or above or below it.
Analyze the collective consciousness of the group by looking at the balance or imbalance of the “whole self” by the Suits and Majors. Notice what other patterns may be revealed.
This is particularly fun when there are several groups involved with a little competition between the groups by comparing the wholeness and uniqueness of each group’s body.
