No previous Tarot experience necessary! (Really!)
I’ve finally put the basics of what I’ve learned over my many years of study in this area into a workshop format. You see, I’m no greenhorn at this. I’ve studied Tarot for over 40 years in various formats. I have served as co-editor of the Tarot section at All Things Healing. I am also a graduate of the 16-year course of instruction in Tarot and Tree of Life as offered by Builders of the Adytum (BOTA), a course both thorough and rigorous. It requires a lot of the student, and continued personal and spiritual growth are both necessary and inevitable.
This workshop is intended for anyone interested in broadening and deepening their spiritual practice by adding the profound wisdom of Tarot to their tools for development, and for those who wish to assist others in doing the same. This approach is not linked to any particular spiritual path, and is applicable across a wide range of paths.
The way I’ve structured it, this class will be both didactic and experiential. We’ll even be doing work on our own current challenges, be they spiritual, emotional, mental, or even physical. All in all, it should be a pretty enjoyable and enlightening time. The venue for the workshop is very comfortable. It’s located in Eastwind Healing Center, where I practice.
Tarot for Spiritual Growth will cover:
- The deeper meanings of the 22-card Major Arcana of Tarot
- How to use these archetypal images for personal and spiritual development
- Uses of the cards in meditation
- Application of the cards to everyday problems through a simple card spread
- Some of my personal research on what I call “the essential virtue” of each card
- Other, related topics, depending on class interest
- and more, cool stuff!
This is not a simplistic “how to read the Tarot” class, even though we will be learning a spread that can be used to get information from our Higher Selves about problems and situations. This workshop goes much deeper than that. Don’t get me wrong, the information you learn here will help you if you read the Tarot, or are interested in learning to do so. After this workshop, you will have a deeper appreciation for and understand of the Major Arcana, which will help you regardless of where you take your Tarot studies in the future.
This work can be used not only for your own development, but also in the helping professions. I use it constantly in my psychology practice, often with dramatic results. Given this, the 12 contact hours of this workshop may be used as continuing education. Of course, I can’t guarantee that your particular discipline will honor them. You should check with the specific state regulations for your area. Since I am a licensed psychologist, I am pretty certain, though, that they will be acceptable for psychologists in the state of Iowa.

Class size is limited, so don’t delay. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your space. I hope to see you there.
By the way, this workshop is a prelude to more advanced Tarot and Tree of Life workshops. If you are at all interested in this area of mysticism and how it can assist you in your quest for spiritual growth, stay tuned!
