For the first time ever! Bellingham local and professional tarot reader Charles Crooks, is offering a course teaching his easiest methods and practices of understanding the tarot.
Join Charles as he leads this in-depth 3 week long tarot workshop. Running Monday evenings February 24, March 2, and March 9, 7-9:30pm, prepare to dive deep to learn the subtle and major energies of the tarot. Whether this is your first time using a deck or maybe you’ve been reading for years, the workshop aims to give new insight, clarity, and direction into the tarot.
The class is not about routine memorization of the cards. You will learn to tap into your intuition, the still quiet voice inside of everyone, that has answers. When tarot is used with a combination of knowledge and intuition, it reflects aspects of a situation or question that is often surprisingly insightful.
This class is BYOD! (Bring your own deck) The recommended deck is the Rider Waite Smith deck, however, you may use anything that has similar imagery.
Please note, there are only 6 spots available for this course!
Class is held at the Griggs Office Supply building downtown Bellingham, located at 115 Unity St. #202.
February 24: The Major Arcana
The major arcana are the first 22 cards of a tarot deck that describe the journey of the Fool. Understanding the archetypes he meets on his journey helps us grasp the bigger energies in life, as well as the harder lessons. The journey of the Fool isn’t always easy, but it’s life changing if you embrace it. .
March 2: The Minor Arcana and Court Cards
The minor and court cards represent the smaller energies, celebrations, and challenges we encounter on a daily level. The court cards introduce us to personalities and qualities within other people and ourselves.
March 9: Reading Synthesis (Putting it all together)
Now that you know what’s in a tarot deck, how do you put it all together? Charles always says, “A sign of a good reader is not how well someone knows the cards individually, but how they weave the cards together to tell a complete story.” Learn helpful tips to make you a stronger reader without relying on a guidebook. You will also try your hand in creating your own spread, and take home ones that Charles uses all the time!
Learning the tarot does not have to be difficult. When we understand the patterns within the cards, reading for yourself and/or others becomes fun and effortless. Tarot has proven over and over again to be one of the best sources of reflection in Charles’ life to this day. When we are willing to engage with it, challenge ourselves, and open our hearts to it, tarot will lay out a wealth of information and advice.
