A Day in the Tarot with Rachel Pollack & Carolyn Cushing

Shining Tribe Speaker of StonesSpeak the things that must be spoken. Leave nothing out.

These words, woven from the poems of the Speakers of Stones and Fire in the Shining Tribe deck, define what we do as Tarot readers. We speak what we see in the cards, we tell the stories they reveal to us—stories of our (and querents’) lives, stories of imagination, stories of the Tarot’s wisdom and its deep traditions. Today we will explore how the cards reveal their stories and inspire our own. We will begin by examining the Tarot as shape shifters, exploring the many forms the cards can take, with such starting points as the Fool’s Journey, the Tree of Life (as in the famous ten points of Kabbalah, but as a living flowering tree as well), and Circles that guide us to integrate all parts of ourselves to step toward Wholeness. We will seek the life energy within these forms, the energy that enables us to speak and be heard.

Come join us for a long awaited event.

Date and Time: Sunday, September 22 from 10am to 4:30pm

I’m looking forward to the Sunday with you and Rachel Pollack at the sanctuary. I’ve been to workshops there before. It’s a marvelous location. And I can’t imagine a better Tarot team than the two of you.
