Hello, Everyone!

3 Tiers for Arcana Academy!

If there’s one thing I love as much as reading Tarot, it’s teaching it! I’m so excited to share with you my newly expanded Arcana Academy, a mystery school in which I share my magical knowledge with you! There are three ways you can get involved!

Arcana Academy officially started a few years ago when a client asked me to teach them how to read the Tarot, resulting in a two-and-half year course of individual study. This led to me working with several students in a one-on-one capacity for different spans of time. I continue to take on students even now. Earlier this year, due to popular interest, I offered introductory Tarot classes to the public. They were a great success, leading me to create three tiers of classes honoring the different levels of interest and commitment people have expressed. There are three ways you can can interact with Arcana Academy:

Mixed Media Mixer in the Mission!

Heart Hero

HEART HERO by Storm Arcana

Hey San Francisco folks! My artwork is on the walls of The Sycamore in the Mission and I wanna hang out with y’all! Come have a drink, eat some food (they have a cool menu and the kitchen is open until Gremlins feeding time!) and check out my paintings in “The Theban Mysteries Series.” Maybe we’ll get really absurd and practice our Theban script together, lol! The mixer is this coming Sunday, October 25th at 7 pm.

For those of you can’t make it, please enjoy my artwork in high definition and consider purchasing a piece for your collection! Bright Blessings! ~Storm

Updated: Storm Arcana Presents: The Theban Mysteries Series

ANCIENT ALPHABET APPLIED IN ABSTRACT ARTWORK

I’m super excited to present my new series of mixed media collage paintings: THE THEBAN MYSTERIES! I’ve always been drawn to the lyrical lines of the ancient Theban alphabet and found it a great joy to incorporate the strange 16th century cipher script with comic book artwork, Tarot cards, and decorative art paper.

After carefully creating collage compositions, I added multiple strokes of paint to build depth and playfulness to each artwork. It was fun to discover what images survived the layering process. The Theban messages were added near the end and spell out the title of each painting. There are nine splashy pop culture pieces in total. Add one of THE THEBAN MYSTERIES to your art collection today!

Note: A separate shipping invoice will be sent after purchase for buyers located outside of San Francisco.

Soulful Street Stories

Souls

Shining Souls of Society: Jackie Mostny, Dijon Bowden and Storm Arcana in Mission Dolores Park, San Francisco, CA.

Today I had the good fortune to spend some time with Dijon Bowden, Bay Area storyteller and creator of the street photography project Souls of Society. Dijon took my photo on Divisadero Street in 2011 when the project was in its nascent stage and going by the name Souls of San Francisco. I was on my way to read Tarot for an event and was dressed up in steampunk clothing complete with top hat and cloak. Dijon’s photograph remains a loving snapshot from another time, capturing a vulnerability and presence that still surprises and impresses me.

The Happiness Advantage

Smiley

“My experience is what I agree to attend to.” ~William James

I’m excited to share a fantastic book with you by psychologist Shawn Achor about changing our approach to success and happiness. In the appropriately titled The Happiness Advantage, Achor explores how “conventional wisdom” states that if we work hard, we will succeed and then find happiness. If I can just get that promotion, find the perfect mate, gain the muscle mass, then I will be happy. Achor says, no, it’s the other away around. This principle reminds me of an anonymous quote I was told recently, “Be happy as you await happiness.” The message is that we must accept where we are, and find enjoyment in the process as we work toward the desired goal. The means must be as rewarding as the result because “happiness is the center around which success orbits” (61).

For over a decade, Achor researched and taught positive psychology techniques to maximize happiness and improve potential. His focus is primarily about how we can raise our effectiveness at work in a corporate setting, but his concepts are applicable to all aspects of our lives. In this passage, he explains we have a choice about how we look at the world:
