The Science of the 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 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 Robert Lee Camp. She offers Private readings to individuals on Career, Health, Relationship Compatibility and Yearly life planning.

Breast Health is total body health

Well Breast Massage

April 2

9am - 1pm

Breast Massage is a technique that promotes circulation and drainage of lymph in breast tissues, thereby ridding the body of the accumulation of toxins which cause painful cysts and eventually disease. Although generally taught as a self-help technique, many women would rather receive regular Breast Massage from a licensed massage therapist than perform the massage themselves.


The Purpose of this course is to cover all aspects of a therapeutic Breast Massage, including anatomy and physiology of breast tissues, normal breast changes over a woman's lifetime, massage techniques to use with clients, draping, marketing, consent for treatment, contraindications, prevention and self care massage, diet choices for breast health, acupressure to free the chi flow through breast tissues. Implications and results of pre and post surgical massage.


Caryn makes a special Breast Massage oil for this class and to use in treatments. There is also a companion DVD which explains Anatomy & Physiology of Breast tissues, has several demos and a self care treatment.


Caryn has 15 years of experience in teaching Well Breast Massage and working with clients. She began an International study in 2007 on Well Breast Massage based on research from the Women's Health initiative.  Caryn has been a certified instructor with NCBTMB since 2000, is a member of AMTA since 1995 and belongs to WSMTA.  


Class is 9am-1pm 

Tuition $75.    4 CE from NCBTMB

Divination from the Order of the Magi

The 52 Card deck that we know as “playing cards” is actually a system of Divination that came from Atlantis 20,000 years ago and emerged in Egypt with the Magi Fellowship.


The Science of the 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.

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 one day introductory workshop, you will learn how to calculate your individual Birth Card and explore your karmic relationship to others. Your Birth card will guide you toward your life’s plan in the Book of Destiny.


Learn how the cards can help you more clearly define your life’s purpose and how they provide you with a blueprint for continual success.


Instructor Caryn Boyd Diel has been a student of this system of divination and card reading for 20 years and studied with author and Grand Master of the Magi Robert Lee Camp. She offers Private readings to individuals on Career, Health, Relationship Compatibility and Yearly life planning.
