There is something special about summer in Oregon for the sharing and celebrating of Tarot. The fun begins in July with the OREGON COUNTRY FAIR where I offer readings at the Mothership booth, a healing oasis in the Chela Mela Meadow area. This was my 10th year with this collective of healing professionals.
My booth space image has had an upgrade this year, a welcome change with a lovely tree’s presence, so true to my nature.
Next on July’s schedule is the TAROT INTENSIVE, three days of deep study in special topics on Tarot along with TAROT SUPERVISION sessions. All classes are held at Earth Heaven Retreat, Yachats, Oregon.
This year’s offerings include the following topics (class summaries at this link):
— ASTROLOGY IN TAROT – July 27
— ALCHEMY IN TAROT – July 28
— KABBALAH IN TAROT – July 29
— TAROT SUPERVISION – July 27 & 28

The last weekend of July is reserved for the ANNUAL TAROT RETREAT, a tradition that is celebrating it’s 15th year. Tarot enthusiasts gather in a private forest setting on the Oregon coast, removed from the busy-ness of the world to turn our focus inward.
It became apparent to me a few years back that the retreat year was corresponding with the Tarot trump of the same number. XV The Devil challenges us to look at our shadow, but with the purpose of supporting us to be our most alive and authentic selves. So…you can imagine the fun we will have with this year’s activities.
The Tarot Retreat is an opportunity to immerse ourselves in the experience and wisdom of Tarot, a body-mind-emotion-spirit approach. Last year’s event focused on XIV Temperance and enjoyed the presence of 14 participants…no coincidence…and initiated us all into a higher, more spiritual relationship with life. With XV The Devil, those who are ready to take this next step together are brave enough to view their shadow and possibly embrace their totality.

Summer in Oregon winds down with two more important events. In Yachats, the first weekend of August we have an annual fair, PATHWAYS TO TRANSFORMATION, which started the same year as the Tarot Retreat, 15 years ago, and is the only local fair where I offer readings. On Saturday, my talk this year is “Spiritual Roots of Tarot.”
This will be my first year at the BELOVED FESTIVAL in Tidewater, Oregon. I’m honored to be part of this deeply spiritual gathering.
Last in this exciting string of events is a west coast tradition held in San Francisco, the BAY AREA TAROT SYMPOSIUM (SF-BATS) hosted by Thalassa and the Daughters of Divination. Workshops are offered by a variety of respected Tarot writers and teachers. It is a wonderful meeting of the Tarot tribes with friends gathering from many parts of the country, and perhaps the world.
Hope your summer is filled with fun and wonderful gatherings of beings.
