An Intuitive Approach to the Tarot

Class 1: I will be bringing a few decks with me, it is recommended that students bring their own deck.

What does "intuitive tarot"? This class will help the student to develop their own intuitive sense, so that the tarot can be used without having to refer to that little booklet that how comes with! The tarot teaches you how to tap into your subconscious-your past experiences and even your past lives! This class will touch on archetypes or symbols and how to interpret them in a reading. This will be a very interactive class in which the student will learn how to take care of their decks and how to do a beginning spread.

Class 2:: It's recommended that the student take class 1. In this class, we will touch on the different types of cards and spreads that are out there. how to pick a deck from the hundreds of decks out there! Working with reversals, how to develop a spread for yourself and how to set up a "sacred" space for readings using crystals, incense etc. We will be learning how to read for one another, so we will be pairing off into groups. A pen and a pad is recommended for both classes. As an update to this class, we will talk about how to start and promote your own tarot business!
