Upcoming Tarot events

Future talks: I’m looking at holding a ‘free’ Tarot night on Thursday, January 7th, 2010 from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. The topic for the night is ‘The Fool’s Journey”. It is intended to be interactive so bring your favourite deck. We’ll review various renditions of the Fool’s Journey (bring one if you have one), explore some of the repeating symbols of the Major Arcana and begin the construction of a ‘personal dictionary’ for the Majors. Bring a journal or a laptop to help with your dictionary. Of course, anyone who is interested and has not attended previous talks is still more than welcome to attend. Although the talk is always free, I am asking for small donations to cover paper, printing, coffee and tea. Or, bring a treat!
        Also, if you know anyone who would be interested in attending a free Tarot talk for beginners, the next one is scheduled for Thursday, February 18th, 2010. This beginner’s overview of the Tarot will look at its history and the basic structure of the deck. Contact me at 519-217-7243 or whitesagetarot@gmail.com.
 
Gift Certificates: A few people have asked about gift certificates. I now have them available. I’m new to the gift certificate ‘scene’ so, as an ‘incentive’, buy a gift certificate for someone for an hour consultation for $65 and take advantage of a $20 discount if you book a reading for yourself at the same time. The total cost for your gift certificate and consultation is $105.  I have Paypal for your payment convenience.
 
The first seminar of 2010: On Saturday, January 23rd, 2010, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., I’m hosting a workshop exploring a 20-card layout based on Trish MacGregor and Phyllis Vega’s “New Year’s Spread” in my space in Orangeville, Ontario. This 6-hour intensive will use the Tarot to have some fun and explore goals for 2010. The cost of the workshop is $50 and, since it takes a lot of room to work with 20 cards :), space is limited to 8 people; book soon. Look for a one-day workshop on ‘Read, Write and Play with the Tarot’ sometime in April, 2010.
 
Please feel free to forward this information to anyone you think would be interested. Or, better yet, tell them about my blog.

Upcoming Free Tarot Talk

I’m beginning preparations for a Free Beginner’s Tarot Talk on Thursday, November 26th. What could be better than starting a learning experience with the Tarot by using my current study deck, the ‘Osho Zen Tarot’.  This beautiful deck was a birthday present from my partner earlier this month. This morning, while focusing on the question: ‘What do I need to know about my upcoming Tarot talk?’, I drew the 5 of waters. The card is entitled ‘Clinging to the Past”. This answer to my question reminds me to enjoy the experience for what it is and not to dwell on it or cling to it. It will soon be upon me and then gone. I also need to know that I must ‘think outside the box’. What I’ve been clinging to as far as expectations for this talk may not come to fruition. The feelings that emerge may be new or unexpected.  

If you’re interested in attending a Tarot Talk for Beginners, please contact me at whitesagetarot@gmail.com or at 519-217-7243. The talk is on Thursday, November 26th from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. in my space in Orangeville, Ontario. R.S.V.P. is required.
