The Tarot is a tool to help us on our path toward individuation and expanded awareness. It strengthens the link between our conscious and unconscious processes and illuminates those areas of our psyche that are directly unavailable to us. When we view the Major Arcana as universal archetypes that dwell within each of us, the Court families as specific aspects of personality and the Minor Arcana as the processes of expression, we gain a better understanding of the relationships between our inner and outer worlds. We begin to see the Divine mirrored in the Self and the role of the ego in our development. The Tarot is a bridge to our Divine Self, and all of the miracles contained within.
Join Pamela Norris in a fascinating exploration of consciousness using the ancient oracle of the Tarot. Develop your personal relationship to the cards as we play with the images and symbols that are the language of the unconscious. This is a wonderful and fun opportunity to develop, exercise and strengthen your intuition.

Building a daily practice
No previous knowledge of the Tarot is necessary, but you must bring your own Tarot deck (any deck that is modeled after a traditional 78 card Tarot deck). Also bring pen and journal; a favorite, go-to Tarot reference book; and a willingness to have fun! While the class is structured for beginners, Tarotists at any level of expertise can use the class offerings to broaden their Tarot vision and deepen their practice.
