Tarot & the Ancestors
October 26, 2019
10:00am-12:30 and 6:30-9:00pm
Who are the ancestors, and how do the dead and the living affect each other?
How can tarot be used as a tool for ancestral reclamation, mending family relationships, and feeding mutually supportive ancestral connection?
Workshop will explore ancestors of blood, of spiritual lineage and vocation, and of place. Teachings will model an emphasis on ritual safety. Workshop will be a mixture of ritual, facilitated discussion, & lecture, with a lot of experiential exploration of the methodologies offered, and spaciousness for the group to evolve the format that is most useful. Open to all levels of interest & experience.
Cost: $80, or $120 in combination with Tarot, Divination & Ethics
