Tarot cards are a magical tool to aid us in looking inward. This workshop introduces a modern approach to reading tarot while working with it’s classic structure. It is useful for beginners and seasoned readers alike, because to closely consider Alicia’s methods, one must look freshly at the information contained in tarot as a whole. In this two hour session, you will learn about the structure of a tarot deck; relevant bits of its history and evolution; and some (of the endless) ways you can read the cards to gain insight. Each participant has the option to purchase a Tarot for Dandelions deck, with a guidebook and short story.
About the Instructor
New to Portland, Alicia Karol is an artist who had been making her way through life in New York City by reading tarot at a variety of public and private events. She has illustrated an original deck of tarot cards, as well as other esoteric tools – a set of playing cards, a set of rune cards, and a spell book that she sells and uses in her own practice. Alicia makes divination cards out of a love of imagining classic symbols through a contemporary lens to tether our modern lives to timeless universal concepts.
