Intuitive Thinking through Tarot Interpretation 4: Expanding Your Answers

This workshop series shows how tarot cards provide one avenue for developing intuitive thinking skills. Putting aside the possibility of using the cards as a source of spiritual guidance, this workshop offers a philosophical, historical, and practical inquiry into the possibilities of tarot cards to become a more agile, proactive thinker.

This session concludes the workshop series. It starts by looking at the tarot and considering the kinds of readings that require multiple readings that clarify a particularly ambiguous card. It also includes ways that an “answer” might include multiple, contradicting possibilities. The workshop series ends with a conversation about how the skills that are developed by reading tarot become important in intuiting and interpreting coincidences, synchronicities, and the symbols present in everyday life.

Intuitive Thinking through Tarot Interpretation 2: How to Ask Questions

This workshop series shows how tarot cards provide one avenue for developing intuitive thinking skills. Putting aside the possibility of using the cards as a source of spiritual guidance, this workshop offers a philosophical, historical, and practical inquiry into the possibilities of tarot cards to become a more agile, proactive thinker.

Workshops will be held on alternating Mondays from 7-9pm in June & July 2019: June 17, July 1, July 15.

The session begins with a discussion of how tools tend to frame and limit the sorts of questions that we ask, and how becoming familiar with these limitations can allow for a more robust and expansive form of questioning. This emphasis on tools will be concretely complemented by a discussion of the tarot deck, focusing on how numerology and the individual suits are grounded in a well-rounded understanding of human capabilities.
