Guide: Coleman Stevenson Tuition: $110
In this three week Summer Delve, we will study the narratives hidden within the archetypal imagery of the tarot deck, focusing on the Major Arcana in the first week and the four suits in the second week. We will explore traditional ways these tales have been told as well as locate our personal stories within the classic images. Through this crash course in tarot storytelling, participants will also learn some basics of reading the cards for self-study, focusing on an intuitive approach to interpretation. No prior experience with tarot is required.
Text: any Rider Waite Smith style tarot deck (a list of choices will be emailed to participants prior to the first week)
