Best if you have some knowledge of the basic 22 Tarot majors. If you’re not sure about this, please contact and we’ll chat about it.

Recommended:  Sometime before the workshop take some time to gaze at your cards (or an on line deck) and make note of the words, feelings or body sensations that occur to you.

If you ‘know’  the Tarot majors and seek other, creative ways to explore their meanings, this workshop brings you to an embodied, lyrical and multi-sensory way of ‘getting it’ when it comes to their full-spectrum meanings.

How do we get creatively involved with these basic and very powerful archetypes?
Dance them, write them, draw them, role play them! We play non-competitive guessing games and ‘act out’ readings for each other.

Why would we approach learning Tarot in this way? 
Reading books, blogs and websites about Tarot provides lots of knowledge and can be fascinating. Memorizing the meanings may not come so easy to many people. After all, there are 78 cards in the standard Tarot! Engaging with Tarot archetypes in more wholistic ways that includes interacting with a group of enthusiastic participants creates memories that are, well, more memorable!In this workshop, you will probably see more directly how the archetypes are at work in your own psyche and in the culture.

$20 – $40 sliding scale 

Register, pay and receive address information. Questions?  Call / Text 520-306-1701 or email merriewolfie@gmail.com

Such a helpful workshop!  Form an action plan, supportive routines and rituals for growth and change using cards as prompts for intuitive and journeyed guidance.

Write affirmations based on your favorite or recently chosen Tarot or Oracle cards and the archetypes that represent.
Find ways to stay inspired and connected to Animal, Plant or Stone guides that are special to you.
We begin with a journey. You may choose cards, use a dream image or focus on energies you’re already working with as the focus of your journey.
After the journey everyone will spend time crafting the affirmations  emphasizing ease of remembering, perhaps rhyme or song, that help in calling in  positive archetypal support in your everyday life. There will be a guided meditationto visualize yourself behaving in ways that align with your intensions. More ‘change agents’ might be particular songs, music,al styles, colors, poses, costume, people, pictures that are touchstones for remembering the archetype.  Please bring an object that you love to be infused with the guidance energy and that can literally be something you frequently touch to ‘recharge’.  The intention is that you find workable ways that promote positive change and growth in your life that you can practice everyday to support new routines and ways of being.

You may already know the cards, archetypes and nature spirits that stir you. If you’re not sure, that’s ok! You could try the archetypes associated with your Sun, Moon and/or Ascendant in your natal or solar return chart. Or give attention and time to the beings in Nature that touch your heart and soul. Or come in for a half hour reading personal Tarot & Totem session anytime this week to help you discern the archetypes and spirit guides best for you.  If you’ve had powerful readings or uplifting dreams and feel pulled to further investigate those messages, that works too.

October 14th – November 4th, 2017.   A Series of 4 Tarot Reading Workshops   

A series of 4 workshops.
Saturdays.  10am – 1pm.
October 14th, 21st, 28th and November 11th
Private residence near A-Mountain / Tumamoc Hill in Tucson, AZ

During these 4 workshops you’ll engage in the Intuitive Art of Tarot through your inborn intuitive connection to the 4 elements (Fire, Water, Air and Earth) and to archetypes that are part of human nature. This is a natural and personal way to learn and deepen connection and understanding of the broad meanings of the cards and the variety of messages they can convey because you relate them to parts of your own psyche and the collective unconscious.

Tarot is an art, not a science. This is true of all forms of Divination. Remembering the meanings of the cards  and feeling ‘in the flow’ during readings comes more easy from developing a fluency that includes your ordinary consciousness, intuition, benevolent guides and collective human nature and experience.  These workshops are designed to facilitate that fluent state of consciousness. There’s a subtle and uplifting joy in such a state of being!  These workshops will facilitate feeling comfortable, confident and connected as you work with the Tarot, and allow your readings to be creative and intuitive.

In each workshop there will be at least a half hour of time for students to do readings for themselves and each other. In each workshop there will also be ideas and practices presented for using Tarot in non-traditional ways such as for magickal intentions, creative arts guidance and more.

All 4 workshops are 3 hours long, beginning at 10am and ending at 1pm on  Saturdays in October.
Included in the workshop:  
*  4 Workshops equalling 12 Hours of Group Instruction
*  Suggested reading list and videos to watch. 
*  Binder and extensive printed information for each workshop. 
*  Exercises to do during class and at home and Tarot spreads to work with during and outside of class. 
*  2 half hour (or 1 full hour) of mentoring and instruction with Merrie at any time in October or November 2017

Saturday. October 14th. Part 1:  Explore all 78 Tarot cards through the spectrum of the 4 elements, numerology and the Majors and how they amplify archetypes of human nature and collective consciousness. A full and hearty workshop to begin the series!

Saturday  October 21st. Part 2:  Creating intuitive relationship to and understanding of the symbols and imagery on the cards. Practice with finding the story being told by the symbols and how they interweave with each other in a reading. 

Saturday, October 28th.  Part 3: History of Tarot and the 21st century renaissance of this art form. Learn how to combine your other interests and talents with Tarot. Use the cards for dream gestation and interpretation.

The Lovers / Gemini and Magician / Mercury
Learn new skills, gain insights into your communication and relationship style by getting to know Tarot archetypes and their corresponding energies in Gemini, Mercury and the 3rd House in your astrological chart.

We’re enjoying the gabby, charming, curious and expressive sign of Gemini until June 21st. The Lovers & The Magician represent expressive, very social, communicative and ingenious elements of human nature and have long been associated with the sign of Gemini and planet Mercury.

Learn how the Tarot Lovers and the Tarot Magician are seeded into human nature, the subconscious and the collective unconscious. You’ll work with these archetypal powers and energies in creative ways through journaling, ‘acting out’ with your fellow students, seeing how they are symbolized in the cards, in indigenous folkways and Nature guides. You’ll pinpoint specific places in your natal astrological chart that reveal something about your relationship and communication styles and how you can most successfully manifest your goals. Below is a description of the 4 parts of this workshop.

Part 1. The Lovers – Commitment to the Path of Relationship. We’ll study this card’s symbols and especially the number 6 and how it refers to to important choices and decisions, and a wisdom path that helps you choose the high road. Entering a committed relationship is on of the most important choices a person can make, and one must make decisions all along the way as the partnership continues or falls apart. The 6 pointed Star of David is the union of two triangles, one upwards (fire) and one downwards (water) and symbolizes much more than Judaism. 6 if the number of the Lovers Card. All four 6’s in the four suits are also about choices. You will learn a drawing meditation based on this sacred shape that’s very helpful in making decisions that are important to you!

Part 2. Magician has tricks to teach you so you can Make It So!  Magician is the card that represents Mercury, Gemini’s ruling planet. This archetype helps you focus on what you really want and then devise a plan to ‘make it so!’. The symbols of the 4 suits / 4 elements always appear on this card, because Fire (enthusiasm), Water (feeling), Air (intelligence) and Earth (resources) are needed to manifest. You’ll explore a personal goal or intention. Taking a hint from Magician, you’ll work on a success plan by analyzing how the 4 elements come into balance and play in your endeavor.

Part 3. Gemini, the social butterfly and the ever curious. By looking at your natal Gemini, the house it rules and any planets within it, much about the way you learn and communicate and your social persona can be revealed. By gazing at the correspondingTarot cards you can intuit much about these aspects of yourself. Class role-play and a journey to the animals and symbols in your cards will bring more insight!

Part 4.  Mercury the messenger, the feather-footed god, is the planet closest to the Sun’s heat and moves quickly. From an Earth-based point of view, Mercury  has a quirky pattern of back and forth in the sky (retrograde and forward seasons). The placement of Mercury in house and sign in your chart reveals a lot about your communication style, teamwork and organization efforts and quickness ( or not) of thought.  Then there will be a  guided meditation about having a feathered head and feather feet and how that symbolism unfolds for you.

This workshop will take place on Wednesday June 7th from 6pm – 9pm at a private residence in Tucson AZ

In-Depth Tarot – Develop Deep Divination Skills

4 workshops, 4 Monday evenings, 12 hours of connecting to the elemental and archetypal mysteries and depth of the art of Tarot.

Location: Private residence near Ina & Oracle, address given upon registration

Please note: There’s only 1 workshop left to attend of these 4. Here it is!

Workshop #4.  Increasing Your Card Reading Skills and Diverse Other Uses of Tarot.  Monday, May 22nd. 6pm – 9pm. The intention of this workshop is to build confidence and finesse in your readings. You’ll learn techniques to ‘get out of your own way’ and allow the divinatory meanings to come through with trust and confidence in yourself. People have a tendency to want to say the nice or the reassuring thing which often isn’t exactly what Spirit is delivering. You’ll get practice here in giving a true interpretation with kindness and compassion even if it’s not with your client wants to hear. Give and receive readings for each other. You’ll also learn other ways to use your Tarot cards besides for divination and readings.

These four workshops will focus on learning more about the cards and the archetypal power and practical situations they represent. Each workshop will also include ample opportunity to read for your fellow students, to learn new card spreads, and ways to adapt the Tarot to a variety of needs and circumstances including reading for yourself, groups, children, people you’re close to, those in crisis as well as those with practical concerns or who have no particular focus and are just curious. Best of all, your awareness of your own archetypal psychology will grow and blossom. When you grow your roots strong and deep into this knowledge and have lots of practice, you’ll be able to share Tarot with others in a nurturing, creative and healing way.

past …

Workshop 1: Monday, April 17th, 6m – 9pm: The Major Arcana (the 22 cards from 0 Fool to 21 World) and how they relate to significant areas of life and experiences that everyone encounters, again and again.(i.e. patterns of thinking, creativity, search for security, love relationships, health, loss and gain, and so much more). Learn several different ways of organizing or patterning the Majors that help to understand the depth and variety of the full spectrum of meanings within each of the 22 cards.
* Share readings and spreads with each other and read for yourself using only the Majors.

Workshop 2: Monday, April 24th, 6pm – 9pm: In-depth study of the 4 Aces of the 4 elements / suits (Fire, Water, Air and Earth) which helps you understand the root energy of the 4 suits, and how important they are in any individual or situation. Go deeper into the Majors by understanding their symbols, with emphasis on how the details in the cards relate to the 4 elements.
* Do more readings for each other (using Majors and Aces) and learn how to intuitively structure the meaning of the reading and the guidance to share by considering the 4 elements and how they flow through the cards, and even how they ‘talk’ to each other.

Date Change! Workshop 3: Saturday, May 6th, 10am – 1pm. Looking at and working with all 56 cards of the 4 suits (Ace to 10, plus 4 people cards). Looking at the pattern that flows through each suit, and the kinship of the numerology across each suit, helps you easily ‘get’ what each cards means and to read the flow of the story they are telling within a reading. It’s different from trying to memorize each individual card. Your readings for each other this week will include all the cards – Majors, Minors and Court.

These workshops are appropriate for people with some Tarot experience and who have a strong interest in or passion for learning and exploring the Tarot tradition. If you love visual symbols, or are fascinated by archetypal psychology and deep human nature, or feel grounded and balanced in the 4 directions or 4 elements, you’ll love these workshops! There will be sharing and discussion during class time, and a commitment to staying focused, ‘on time’ with doing the exercise and covering the material, so that you get the most of the investment of your time and effort. We’ll be in learning and doing mode throughout the workshop. If people want to socialize, they’re welcome to stay for a little while after the workshop or encouraged to go hang out in one of Tucson’s many awesome locations for doing so.
