The Transformation Game®

Sometimes life is filled with blessings, insights, and a heart-felt sense of connection with people around us. Other times we stumble through a series of setbacks, accumulating pain, even falling into depression; and nothing we try seems to help us get out of it. Sometimes someone unexpectedly appreciates us or offers to serve us – or we reach out to help another. Sometimes miracles happen, pain is lifted, new directions open up, and the seemingly impossible occurs.

Just as life is filled with this rich variety of experience, so is the Transformation Game®, a fun and complex board game which offers a playful yet substantial way of understanding and transforming key issues in your life. It can be played at varying levels of intensity, from a light-hearted way of gaining insight into yourself, to a tool to help solve problems, clarify important personal issues, or creatively enhance relationships.

The Transformation Game® was created and developed by Joy Drake and Kathy Tyler at the Findhorn Foundation. Since the first Game workshop was offered here in 1978, thousands of people have played the Game in its various forms. Many more have worked with the Angel® Cards, with over a million Angel decks sold to date. Several programmes and products now make up the Game ‘family’ and are available world-wide through InnerLinks, a consulting and training company based both in the USA and UK that researches and develops Transformation Game® products, programmes and trainings. The Findhorn Foundation, where the Game was originally developed, is the centre for Game programmes in Europe.

Angel® Cards

The Angel® Cards are a set of 72 illustrated cards, each depicting a unique angelic quality with a word and a picture. They offer doorways to a realm of spiritual awareness which can encourage us to greater wholeness in our lives. Twenty new angel qualities have just joined the pack to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Angel® Cards.

The Angel® Cards are much more than just cards. They are called Angel® Cards because they represent pure essences. Meditating on them helps you expand your sensitivity to inner resources and uncover a deeper understanding of personal issues. The Angel® Cards are qualities of aliveness that can assist and encourage an experience of life at a deeper level.

Angel CardsEach playfully illustrated keyword helps you focus on a particular aspect of your inner life. The more you think about the quality reflected by the word and picture on the card, the more you will find this quality echoing in your life.

Angel® Cards can be used to support you in many different ways. Choose an Angel on your birthday to overlight your new year, or other special occasions. Select a weekly or daily Angel to bring inspiration to work, school, an activity or a relationship. Pick an Angel with a friend or relative you would like deeper communication with. Discover your own unique connection to the Angels.

The Angel® Cards were developed as part of The Transformation Game® by Joy Drake and Kathy Tyler. The Game is a fun and complex board game offering a playful yet substantial way of understanding and gracefully transforming the way you play your life. Angel® Cards are available in Dutch, English, French, German, and Spanish. Other Angel products include: Angel® Cards book, Angel® Stickers, Angel® Companion (sterling silver pendant and chain), and Angel® Cards Screensaver.

This is what Joy Drake and Kathy Tyler, creators of the original Angel® Cards, have to say about this new development:

We are thrilled to announce the birth of a new incarnation of the wonderful Angel® Cards.

When the original deck of Angel® Cards was first published in 1981 we were surprised that it gave birth to a whole new genre of angel divination decks. We had no idea that these tiny cards would touch the hearts of so many people worldwide.

When we decided to start producing the original Angel® Cards, while living at the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland, we hand cut and collated them. Now, after 1.4 million sets sold worldwide since that time, through the virtual skills of the team at the Mind and Soul Network who developed this App with our guidance, we can bring the uplifting and inspiring messages of the Angels to even more people.

We hope this App will support you in weaving intuitive promptings into the fabric of your everyday life. Let the Angels inspire you to risk a response to life that is spontaneous, fresh and enlivening. Allow the Angels to guide you to act in congruence with your highest values and integrity. Our deepest wish for you is that you develop the ability to trust your intuition and live your life from the inside out.

May this new incarnation of the Angel® Cards support you in moving forward to meet the new in your life with openness and angelic assistance. And may our collective contributions increase global peace, harmony and wisdom. We offer huge thanks all round.

Gratefully going with the flow.Joy and Kathy
