Exercise your intuition! Discover the meanings behind tarot cards, and learn how they can be used to trace your personal journey through life, tell you what other people are thinking, provide insight into a situation, or inform you which direction your relationship or job is going. The tarot is an ancient tool rich in myth and archetypal imagery that can stimulate—and even increase!—your intuitive powers. Watch a renowned tarot master read the cards, then learn to conduct a simple reading on your own. Wine will be provided in this class to aid you in finding your intuition. (And unwinding after a long week.)
