Why is Tarot so popular right now?  Are your clients coming in talking about the card they pulled before the session, and you have no idea what that means? Have you used Tarot for years for own well-being and would love to use it with mental health clients but not sure how?

Most clients come into therapy saying that do not have access to their intuition and are not sure how to trust what the right choices are to make in their lives. Using a single card pulled from a tarot deck and exploring it’s meaning, clients can begin to feel connected to their own sense of self, find new ways to safely explore difficult experiences, and find ways to feel grounded again.

Starting with the Jungian concept of Archetypes, we will look at how the collective sense of self is represented within these twelve types of being.  We will then explore the history and uses of Tarot.  These seventy-eight cards have been used for hundreds of years.  Using the Rider-Waite-Smith deck from 1909 as a starting place, we will look at many of the decks available today and why people turn to them every day or when times get difficult.


We will explore intuition and how to trust our own sense of knowing. In this hands-on workshop, you will make at least six of your own cards.  Exploring the major arcana, and the suits of cups, pentacles, swords, and wands we will learn about the journey in each of these sets.
