by Dawn Grey, Certified Tarot Master, author of Reading the Tarot
The Tarot is a method of divination, not a fortunetelling
device. What is the difference? The term divination means "to
communicate with the Divine/God". As such every time you prepare to
consult the cards you are in fact opening to God. Their symbols are highly
spiritual in nature and represent world religions, the human condition, and
archetypes. Consulting the cards is therefore a sacred act of asking the
Divine for advice and inspiration. It is not a game, not for
entertainment, and not to tell you only the information you want to hear. In
essence, the art of Tarot is the act of prayer.
Tarot is a spiritual and psychological tool, and as such, can
take a lifetime to fully learn and master, but I offer a flexible program to
work around your schedule and level of ability. I have accumulated a wealth of
information to share with you not readily found in most courses. This course program is for those who are serious about learning
the tarot and requires dedication and constant study to achieve the master
level. I am here to coach you through every step of the way, help you find your
own style, and allow you to emerge into an ethical and accurate reader.
