About Joanna Powell Colbert
Welcome, and thanks for finding me here!
I’m an artist, author, teacher, mentor, and retreat host who encourages lovers of Mama Gaia to lead wholehearted, creative, and soulful lives.
My Tarot cards and book, The Gaian Tarot, was nine years in the making, and combines my love of symbolic, archetypal art with the mysteries of the natural world. It was published by Llewellyn Worldwide in September 2011. I released a deluxe, Limited Edition of 1000 decks in March 2010. Within a year, 70% of those had already found happy homes. (There are still a few copies left!)
I teach e-courses and workshops around the country on earth-centered spirituality, manifesting your dreams, Gaian Soul Seasonal Practices for the Wheel of the Year, creativity as a devotional path, and tarot as a tool for inner guidance and self-exploration.
I host two extraordinary Gaian Soul Retreats for women each year, near Spring Equinox and Autumn Equinox, at Aldermarsh Retreat Center on Whidbey Island, Washington.
I also host the engaging membership site, Gaian Tarot Circle, which I created for people who want to participate in a study circle centered on the Gaian Tarot.
I sell my colored-pencil paintings and mixed media pieces as originals and limited edition prints. Amber Lotus Publishing Co. calls me one of “the most accomplished and well-loved artists in the Goddess-spirit community.”
I am dedicated to the Ocean Mother in all Her guises, and am a lover of Mama Gaia.
I’m a Capricorn Sun, Taurus Moon and Taurus Rising.
I live in the woods outside Bellingham, Washington with my husband, musician Craig Olson, and our two cats, Smokey and Cleo. Our house is called Rainbow Cottage, which we named for the rainbows that fill the living room on late afternoons when the sun shines through prisms high in clerestory windows.
Oh, and my granddaughter Gracie is the most beautiful child in the whole, entire world!
