Welcome, Tarot 101 is for everyone. If you know a lot about Tarot and are looking to deepen your practice, if you are new to the world of Tarot and feel curious and maybe a bit skeptical, or if you fall somewhere in the middle this class is for you. Thank you for being ready to engage with this work and look inward.
There are many approaches to Tarot. I see Tarot as a tool which we can use to tap into our personal intuition and move into a space of creativity. I believe that you already have the answers you are seeking, but readings and work with the Tarot can help bring these answers to the surface.
Throughout the class we will lean into learning an approach that is intuitive and based on visual inquiry. Together we will create an approach which is rooted in the history of the tarot but catered to your knowing. Through visual inquiry and discussion we will dive deeply into messages from the Tarot.
This method is based on active learning & the class will be about 40 percent lecture, ten percent sharing, and fifty percent discussion and collecting gazing. It is my firm belief that whoever is doing the talking is doing the learning. This class relies on progressive educational techniques that reach students with a range of learning variations.
In this class we will collaboratively attend to the information each student is seeking to explore. This is called emergent learning. Overarching themes such as slowing down, tuning in, and active listening will be emphasized. Additionally we will learn about the history of Tarot, the anatomy of the deck, commonly accepted meanings in the Major Arcana, commonly used spreads, and different ways we can use the Tarot in our practices. We will touch on the relationship between Tarot and practices such as symbolism, Kabbalah, and Reiki. In the second half of the class we will engage in a practical experience to ensure that you feel comfortable applying what we have considered in your own practice.

Additional notes on buying a deck: It is important to find a deck which has artwork that you connect with. Some suggestions of places to find and discover unique decks:
What will be included in my Virtual Class package?
One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.
How many people is my purchase good for?
Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!
Will I need anything from home to use in the class?
You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.
Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?
Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.
Do I have to show my video or speak during class?
While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!
This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.
Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.
