Winslow Eliot is an award-winning author and intuitive counselor, who offers clairvoyant readings, (including tarot, palmistry, and astrology) and writing mentoring. She loves poetry, belly-dancing, singing, people, sacred places, teaching, writing, and sleeping.

Her book “What Would You Do If There Was Nothing You Had To Do? Practices to create your life the way you want it to be has won three awards: WINNER of the Indie Excellence Book Awards (self-help/spiritual); a finalist in the new age non-fiction; also a finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards (self help).

In her intuitive counseling sessions, she uses thIMG_0182e tarot, your hands, and the heart energy that flows between querent and reader to balance, center, and encourage her customers, many of whom return again and again. Here’s what one client says: “My recent tarot reading with Winslow was truly an extraordinary experience. I arrived with a ragged assortment of concerns, out of which Winslow, cutting to the essence, skillfully helped me formulate some very targeted questions. In every one of the spreads, the cards then fell with uncanny “rightness,” and with her keen intuitive sense and loving, sliding down the rainbowsupportive presence, Winslow guided me toward a deeper understanding of their significance and of the underlying currents of my life and of the choices open to me.”  Find out more at her Tarot Oasis.

Another passion of hers is poetry – reading it, teaching it, and writing it. You can read many of her poems on her website, or in a volume of poetry published in 2012: Poems from the Oasis. Many years ago, when she still lived in New York City, she cofounded the  Saturn Series Weekly Poetry Readings. Twenty-one years later, it’s still going strong.

The Wine-Dark Sea was bought by ITC in Hollywood, and made into a screenplay.  Altogether, her novels have been translated into eleven languages and published in twenty countries. She says one of the highlights of her life was when she was in Athens and saw one of her novels (translated into Greek) for sale in a sidewalk kiosk.
