BEGINNERS' TAROT COURSE
Eight 3 hour classes. Can be run over four days.
for complete beginners and those wanting confidence to read Tarot without a book.
* Work with your Chosen Deck - Choose
a deck of cards that you relate to and work with them throughout the
course, deepening your relationship with that particular deck, its
imagery, mythology and style. Learn the flavour of your own deck,
in the context of general information and the overview of all the
different decks that will be present in the group. Develop a personal
relationship to this deck of cards that is the unique combination
of your own reading style, your beliefs and understandings and the
images depicted in that deck.
* Develop your Intuition - the Tarot
is an ideal tool for developing intuition for inner contemplation,
healing, meditative and creative purposes. Learn to read the cards
NOT as set meanings, written down in a book, but as a flowing, dynamic
philosophy that is adaptive to all situations. Understand your particular
way of reading cards, which may include visual, kinesthetic and aural
information, as well as the elusive 'sixth sense'.
*Learn Tarot Reading Skills - Learn
skills of interpreting the cards, both their deep symbolism and their
meaning for ordinary life situations. Understand how combinations
of different cards alter their meanings, how to look for the central
theme in a spread of cards and how to express what you see clearly
* Understand the Cards - Learn about
the structure of the deck: the Major and Minor Arcanas, the journey
that unfolds through the Major cards and their special relationships
to each other, the different domains of the four minor suits and the
roles of the court cards. Work with the elements, sequencing and numerology
as well as symbolism and spiritual and cultural references present in the cards.
* Supportive and InteractiveTeaching
- These classes are entirely hands-on, with constant, personalised
attention and support to develop confidence, individual style and
overcome difficulties or blocks. There is work that is undertaken
as a whole group, as pairs and individually. The classes are lively,
fun and challenging. Be encouraged to experiment with combining intuition
and knowledge as you learn to read the cards for yourself or a friend.
