You know how much I have a passion for Tarot. Not just reading, but especially teaching. This recent day of exploring the meaning of Tarot with students, was no exception. Following on from the huge success of my online tarot course, Journey to Self, last year, and several LIVE Tarot Workshops already held this year, I had great joy in bringing together those curious tarot lovers who wished to explore their own relationships with self, in particular. Oh my gosh! We were definitely glowing with irredescence!
I was so delighted to deliver my Tarot Workshop on the most popular suit of all minor arcana tarot cards : The Cups
Our workshop space, again within The Vortex, Seaham Hall Hotel, Durham, offered us the quiet retreat surrounded by north east coastline, woodland, and spectacular ambience of this five star luxurious coastal retreat.
Those in attendance brought along their Tarot Cards, to add to the many Tarot Decks I had displayed for them to compare imagery, colour, design, symbology, and connect to the psychology and emotional character of the cards. Our velvet chairs supported our postures as we leaned in to view closely the detail upon each of the stunning Tarot Cards. Easing back into relaxation as we meditated upon the cards, and each person wrote down their particular feeling, interpretation, vision, or expectation of each card. Each student had a unique way in which they connected to their Tarot card Decks, but when asked to view and read another Tarot Card Deck, they did so with willingness and enthusiasm, in taking part reading the cards for others, and enhancing their observation skills as well as growth of confidence in their own ability.
The setting was intimate and cosy, and we were covered in an irridescent glow – just like the one you see here, upon this Ten of Cups Tarot Card. Such was the joy in being able to work within a luxurious setting, and in complete harmony with one another. My experience of reading and teaching Tarot, which spans over thirty years, has always been a delight for me, daily., and also in promoting the ability in each of my students, the immense pride I feel, as I see the ability strengthen and adapt to new understandings of the cards, from each of my students.
Our next workshop will focus on Spreads and Layouts for Indepth Tarot Readings for those who wish to read for others, and perhaps venture into professional Tarot Readings for clients across the world, as I do.
