Unlock your own inner wisdom. Tarot cards are often used today as a tool for insight and self-discovery. Learn how to use the cards as a way to learn more about yourself, (as opposed to using the cards for fortunetelling or prediction.)
Set intentions, goals, and dreams for the coming year.
During this one-day workshop, we’ll practice reading the cards intuitively, before looking them up in the book. We’ll learn simple but powerful spreads, play a game or two, and allow the cards to spark creative writing. Identify what is important for you in 2018.
This workshop is about approaching tarot cards in a non-threatening way, having fun, and being playful with a new circle of friends. But it’s about something more - it's also about allowing the “foolishness” of games and play to uncover the deep wisdom of your own heart.
