The Tarot is a system of oracle divination that people have consulted for centuries, seeking their fortunes or their destinies, or simply exploring how to make more powerful choices.

This easy-to-follow, hands-on introductory class with Beth Weaver-Kreider will give you the basics you will need for further understanding of the Tarot.  We will look at the Major Arcana, the Court Cards, and the Minor Pips separately, and we’ll spend some time exploring methods of reading the cards, how to develop your intuition, and how to use the cards for personal development.

Each year, Beth reads Tarot at Radiance throughout the fall, winter & spring seasons.  She has been studying and practicing various forms of divination for the past seventeen years, from Tarot to Runes, and African Bones to the I Ching.  She enjoys using divination as a tool for personal transformation and spiritual development, and as a way to become attuned to the cycles of the natural world.
