Tools for Lifelong Tarot Learning / Tarot 101 Overview

From Art of Change Tarot

In this three-session series, led by Carolyn Cushing of Art of Change Tarot and co-founder of the Massachusetts Tarot Society, you will be grounded in Tarot basics as well as receive tools and techniques for your continued exploration of Tarot as a tool for personal development, spiritual exploration, creativity enhancement, and discerning the unfolding patterns of life.

Creating a Spine of Meaning

This is a foundational session for the whole series and can be taken as a stand-alone class. No Tarot experience required! In this session, participants will:

  • practice accessing their intuition as a way into the cards;
  • get an introduction to the Tarot’s origins and influences (but a very brief one!);
  • see how the Tarot’s structure provides a support for developing your personal spine of meaning for the Tarot;
  • find resources and continued activities for deepening your Tarot study;
  • leave with an information-packed workbook, worksheets for capturing card meanings, and “homeplay” assignments.

The emphasis will be on understanding and developing meanings for the individual cards.

Encountering the Tarot

Participants must have taken Creating a Spine of Meaning or have permission from the instructor to participate. In this session, participants will:

  • share their developing personal understanding of card meanings;
  • be introduced to practices for deepening intuitive and intellectual understanding of the cards on a daily, weekly, seasonal, and/or yearly basis;
  • experience a guided visualization journey into a Tarot card.

The emphasis will be on practices for developing a deeper relationship with the Tarot as an intuitive tool and guide into mystery.

Reading for Self and Others

Participants must have taken Creating a Spine of Meaning or have permission from the instructor to participate. In this session, participants will:

  • be introduced to popular spreads used for Tarot readings;
  • practice making connections between cards in a spread;
  • discuss Tarot reading ethics;
  • read for each other.

The emphasis will be on experiential learning as we spend most of the night reading for each other and looking for patterns in the cards.

Each session is 2 hours long and there are interesting assignments to be completed between classes.
