Wow…what a busy summer this has been. I have had a delightful time full of travel, teaching, and meeting new Tarot friends. On top of all that, I finished self-publishing a new book before leaving on my Southwest tour of the US, picking the books up from the printer on my way to the airport.
My booklet is titled An Introduction to Transformative Tarot Counseling — the High Art of Reading. I am grateful to say it has been well received (almost sold out now) and I anxiously await more feedback as I prepare to expand it’s content for the next printing. You may recognize the artwork on the cover of the booklet. Thanks go to Qahira Lynn, an amazing visionary artist.
The SW tour included speaking at several Tarot Meetup groups, including Santa Fe and Albuquerque, NM and Houston, TX. The tour ended with a glorious weekend at San Francisco Bay Area Tarot Symposium (SF-BATS) where I had the honor of teaching a workshop on Transformative Tarot Counseling™. We all had lots of fun and chose from many interesting workshops.
I especially enjoyed the SF-BATS workshops I attended with Marcus Katz (Tarosophy), Leisa ReFalo (The Tarot Connection), Emily Carding (Transparent Tarot and Oracle), and Mary Greer (Tarot Constellations). Excellent new ideas and perspectives on Tarot work were shared by all. Thanks go to Paul Nagy for his fun photos.
Now that Fall is here, I will be teaching the 2nd Intensive for the Transformative Tarot Counseling™ Certification Program which includes classes that can be attended individually: Dream Class and Clinic, Psychology, Tarot Symbolism, and Tarot Supervision. I have also added an Intermediate Tarot class for my students who wish to continue their learning from the Beginning Tarot classes in Portland.
Last, private Tarot sessions are available via Skype or phone, by appointment. If you are in Portland and plan to attend the Body Mind Spirit Expo, I am in my usual booth space #21, and also am offering a Saturday talk “Tarot and the Principles of Immortality” based on Dai Leon’s work in Origins of the Tarot.
After all the excitement of teaching and traveling, it will soon be time to go back to planting trees. Winter is a time I look forward to resuming my research and writing. I hope to catch up on more of my weblogs. So much to share, so little time…
