Class Descriptions

The History and Mystery of Tarot

The cards are a tool for guidance and a story in symbols for us to read. This workshop covers the history of Tarot, the mystery surrounding the cards, and their origin and use as we know them. It covers the many derivations of Tarot decks created in the last 20 years, and explores similarities and differences between various decks.

It is also an in-depth workshop on the structure of the Tarot cards, including the four elements, the history of the Court Cards, and the story of the Fool's Journey through the Major Arcana. We will also touch upon the relationship between Tarot cards, numerology, astrology, and the Cabalah.

Some knowledge of numerology and astrology is helpful, though not required. A summary handout is provided, however note-taking is encouraged.

Finding Your Authentic Self— An Interactive Tarot Workshop Using the Court Cards and Major Arcana

The Court Cards, or “Pips” as they are sometimes called, have different meanings for different writers and readers, depending on the deck, the layout, and on how we were each taught. Sometimes they are a person in our lives, sometimes they represent ourselves, or a part of ourselves, and sometimes they represent an event.

In this workshop, they will represent what we most are and want to be now, what we least like about ourselves, or an obstacle to our most authentic self at this time.

A Major Arcana card will be selected to help us reach our fondest desire and integrate our light and shadowselves.

In a small group setting, we will each have a chance to intuitively read our cards. Then each group member will give us feedback. Class size is limited to 15.

People attending should bring a journal and pen, and a Tarot deck or two if they wish. In this workshop, it's best to use a deck you're not familiar with. If you're not willing to share your deck with others, I will have several available for common use.
