When I first set out on my journey to create my own oracle deck, I had a vague idea of where to start. And then I came across Jo Klima’s Oracle Creator Course. To say I was blown away by the amount of information I didn’t know I needed would be the understatement of the century. Jo shared not just a clear breakdown of the steps to help you along the path but options for multiple avenues to take depending on your own vision for your deck. This is not a cookie-cutter guide to create a deck. This is a course to learn and decide what your deck is and bring it to life. If you are going to take one course, this I promise is it.
Designer + Yoga Teacher
I have been a fan of both Jo’s stunning artwork and her Inner Star Oracle deck for sometime now. She has an amazing skill set – paired with a sensitive and intuitive nature. I have always dreamed of creating my own oracle deck, so when I saw Jo was offering the Oracle Creator course, it was just what I needed to make my dream a reality. After completing the first module, I knew I had made the right decision. Jo’s course is beautifully delivered and full to the brim with inspiration, guidance and all the technical know-how you need to create your own deck – even if you don’t have much art or design experience. If you have felt a wish to bring a deck into the world – Jo will show you the way.
I joined the Oracle Creator course because I had the plan to create my own deck but needed some more information and the final nudges to get started. Jo has a very special ability to inspire creativity, and this time it was no different. As soon as I started the course, I had the clear vision on my oracle deck and the courage to start working on it. I loved all the information in the course, it is so very practical and easy to follow and it really helps to see clearly. It was very lovely to connect with like-minded creatives along the way and see what others are working on. A course full of inspiration and the right help to take action on your dreams!

Here’s a few common questions being asked which may be helpful to you also.
Q. If I’m based in a different country, is the publishing/printing information still relevant?
For clarity, I am based in Australia, and while I do share the printers and suppliers I’ve used (some are local to me and some are from overseas), I’ve provided the info so anyone can work with a printer of their choice whether it’s local, domestic or overseas.
Q. I’m super busy right now, when does the course start / is it live / can I purchase now and view later?
You have unlimited access to the content after you’ve purchased, so you can jump in whenever you’re ready. There isn’t any pressure to work through all the content at once. It’s really designed to dive into what you need at the various stages of the process.
Q. Are we able to ask you specific questions via a forum, email or call?
While I don’t run group calls, the community area is a space on the course website where you can ask any questions you like. New topics suggestions are also welcome in that area if it’s not already there.
Q. I feel drawn to creating an oracle deck but I’m not an artist or designer, is this something that is for non-artists?
I do share about the process of working with an artist or designer if that is the path you take. There’s also a few different options for creating artwork so you may discover a way to create some artwork yourself!
More words from students
I am about 1/4 way through creating my own Oracle Deck (which has been a goal of mine for YEARS) and having Jo’s guidance to fall back on, reinspire me and nudge me in the right direction has been essential! I know I have a long way to go, but having the information in a step-by-step guide has helped my easily distracted brain stay on task and check off milestones. As always, Jo gives you exactly what you need with no fluff. She has also made the content easy to navigate depending on your experience which I really appreciate. I can’t wait to finish my deck, and when I do… I will certainly be writing a dedication to her in the credits!
From wallflower to wildflower
I’ve been continually impressed with the information inside this course. Jo has freely shared her research and experience with creating decks, and, she’s condensed it all into easily understood terms and steps. I’m so excited to release my deck in the coming months and am grateful to have this wonderful course on hand to guide me through the process.
What an amazing and detailed course that the very talented Jo Klima has created! If you’re looking for an all-inclusive course that is full of amazing tips and suggestions then this is the course for you. Jo has put so much time into providing you with everything you need to know about creating your own card deck and at such great value for money. I can’t recommend this program enough. I have learnt so much about the process of creating a deck of cards and a whole bunch of things I never even thought I would need to know. Jo really did go above and beyond when she poured her soul into creating this course.

The Oracle Creator Course has helped my dream project come true. The content has been an inspiration to me, unlocking my creative potential by inspiring me to try new ways of creating artwork that I had not discovered. The course is so in-depth, with the work modules set up in different sections that are easily understood and help me progress each step of the way. Not only having the support of Jo, but meeting and having the support of fellow oracle creators who are going along the same journey is a huge motivation. It is great to work at my own pace and refer back to the lessons and other resources when I need to. I am excited to see how the rest of the journey unfolds!
The Oracle Creator course has been so helpful in focusing my often random inspirations into something that is more of a concept. There are activities and tips within the course which really help to get clear on the subject, style and substance of an oracle deck creation. I love the insider tips on the creation and production process. As soon as I joined I was so inspired and set off on a creative spree! I really recommend joining the course if you are interested in exploring your options like I was. It really takes the worry, fear and confusion out of it so you can focus on creating!
Closing soon on September 30, 2020.
