Tarot 101: Introduction to Tarot - Tuesday, March 25th, 6-8pm – The Stone Moon, 1304 Cornwall Ave, Bellingham
The central focus of this class is to provide you not only with an understanding of the tarot, but of how you can integrate tarot into your life in order to gain deeper insight and understanding of your self and of the world around you. It is hoped that you will walk away from this class with the ability to calm your mind and tune into your own intuition in order to view situations from a non-biased perspective with the cards as your companion. By understanding tarot you’re not only giving yourself the tools to deal with the day-to-day problems in your life, but you are also catching a glimpse into this truly magical and synchronous universe. You will find that once you open yourself up to and fully understand tarot, all of life’s challenges will seamlessly transform into previously unseen opportunities. $15
Sacred Play with Tarot Cards: A One-Day Retreat - Saturday, April 12th, Bellingham Wa
Let the young Maiden of Spring within you come out to play! Leave the workaday world behind and join us for a day of tarot play.
We’ll practice reading our tarot cards intuitively (we don’t need no book…). We’ll play lighthearted games with the cards, use them to spark stories, and try out brainstorming techniques. We’ll act out the cards with each other in tarot theatre. Jennifer Lucero-Earle of Embodied Tarot will lead us in co-creating a dance based on cards that we choose. (Does that sound fun or what?? No dance experience necessary!)
Join a circle of Wise & Playful Ones as we celebrate the arrival of Spring and our own inner Maidens (no matter our chronological age). “Persephone returns!” On the surface, this retreat is about approaching tarot cards in a non-threatening way, having fun, and being playful on a beautiful spring day with a new circle of friends. But really — it’s about allowing the “foolishness” of games and play to uncover the deep wisdom of your own heart.
