Tarot and Journaling Classes April 19

Please join me Saturday, April 19, for two special classes that are very close to my heart.

First, from 10 until noon, we will experiment and play with Visual Journaling With Photographs.  Visual Journaling is a great way to record your life’s experiences, and to explore and communicate with your emotional and feeling self in a very direct and connective way.  If you have photographs and a journal that you would like to experiment with, please bring them – otherwise I’ll have lots for you to experiment with!  These sessions are $10 per person.

Then, from 1 PM until 3:30, please join me for two and a half hours of exploring Tarot Spreads.  We’ll look at a wide variety of different kinds of spreads, and talk about their design and how they work and – especially, which ones to choose in any given reading situation!  Bring your deck, your favorite spreads, and let’s play!  This class is $20, and is limited to 10 people, so please email me to reserve your spot.

Both will be at my studio at 2500 University Avenue West, Studio F-7, in Saint Paul near where University crosses over Highway 280.  Please email me if you are interested in joining me for either of these, or if you have any questions or concerns!

Welcome!

Dear Friends,

Over the last few years I have been busy with finishing graduate school, sending my children off into the world, and changing careers. Between the closing of first, Evenstar Bookstore and then, Sacred Paths Center, I have not been teaching many classes, although I have continued to study and explore areas of interest to me including tarot, kabbalah, shamanism, spiritual and energy systems, myths and archetypes, and the creative process.

Now, I am reestablishing a more regular curriculum of tarot and other classes out of my studio space on University Avenue, a few blocks away from where Evenstar and Sacred Paths used to be located. I am excited to open this space up as a classroom, open studios and creative incubator through classes, workshops and other activities.

I am looking forward to reconnecting with students from the past as well as meeting new ones.
