Briana Saussy is a writer, teacher, and spiritual counselor, and is part of a growing community of soulful seekers. People who are drawn to Briana’s work want a practical and creative approach to spirituality. They are open to the spiritual riches of the world religions, as well as the contributions of modern psychology to man’s search for meaning; but they feel a need to explore the often overlooked and forgotten regions of folk divination, magic and storytelling practices.
Briana’s work speaks to anyone who is looking for range and comprehensiveness of vision, which is required for a genuinely pragmatic approach to spirituality. She is well-grounded in the world’s great religious and intellectual traditions, as well as western psychological practices. She holds a B.A. and M.A. in Eastern and Western classics, philosophy, mathematics and science from St. John’s College (Annapolis and Santa Fe), and is a student of Ancient Greek and Sanskrit; and she has been, moreover, a dedicated student of psychoanalyst Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes’ Cross Cultural Studies program in Colorado.
Their are many ways people can work with Briana. Briana teaches a year-long introductory class on Sacred Arts and storytelling called Spinning Gold. For those interested in developing Tarot mastery, and who want to make Tarot their own, Briana offers a powerful program called 20 Question Tarot. Briana also offers an immersive mentor training known as the Miracle Tree Sessions. For those who desire in-depth one-on-one work, or who would like a more customized learning experience with the Sacred Arts, Briana works one-on-one in a counseling capacity for individuals, with and through the Sacred Arts.
In addition to teaching, Briana writes a lunar letter which goes out to her community on a bi-monthly basis. Her blog Canto features cumulative writings on a variety of sacred arts topics. Her writing has also been featured in Elephant Journal, Kind Over Matter, Roots of She, Orion Magazine, Tiny Buddha, Amulet Magazine, Plant Healer Magazine, and various books. She also sends out daily blessings because she thinks the world has too much in the way of advice and not nearly enough in the way of blessing.
