Story Prompt Cards for Business Storytellers, based on the Tarot, by Tea SilvestreMany writers I know use Tarot as writing prompts and creativity sparks. I do! So when I saw that my colleague had released her own Tarot deck, I was excited and wanted to share it with you.

The Tarotic Story Prompts deck can be used on your own to spark and inspire new content for your marketing {or writing} OR as traditional Tarot cards to help you with challenges in your business.

It’s also fabulous for groups as an ice-breaker or activity to practice storytelling and communication skills.

Origin of the Story Prompts Deck (In Tea’s words)

Story Prompt Cards for Business Storytellers, based on the Tarot, by Tea SilvestreA little over a year ago, I began an experiment in storytelling. I wanted to help entrepreneurs find new ways to network and share the important stories of their work.

So we gathered into a “Story Circle” with the intent to practice our storytelling and story listening skills.

We met at the local library at first, just a half dozen or so. And each time, I’d bring a small stack of index cards with various story prompts or questions.

Following a short preamble (by yours truly) on how to tell an interesting story, participants would draw an index card at random and then share a personal experience based on the prompt they’d chosen.

Often we had truly profound stories. Tears. Laughter. And along the way, lots of deep listening and connecting.

A year later, with my index cards dog-eared and worn (and the stack of prompts quite larger than when I’d begun), I decided to create an official deck for on-going use.
