Tarot Magick Class
Eclectic By Nature – Tarot uses a highly evocative symbolic language. These symbols speaking directly to our unconscious minds can create a strong emotional response. When used in combinations, these symbols can be used to make complex statements. Although the Tarot has long been valued as a tool for meditation and divination, in this workshop we will discuss how Tarot symbolism can also be used as a focal point for working magick. It can be a means to focus your will and communicate your desires in a magical way. In this workshop you will discover how performing tarot spells using strong, positive visualizations and affirmations can help us stay in control and focus on our goals. In this two hour workshop you will learn spells that are easy to perform, providing creative support for everyday living. You don't need any previous knowledge of the Tarot or ability with Tarot divination to do Tarot magick. All you need to do Tarot spells is a Tarot deck and a positive and creative frame of mind. This class is being held offsite - NOT at EBN. The cost of this two hour workshop, instructed by Lee Ann Dononaldson, is $35 per person. Space is limited so please call 336.543.0834 to register in advance.
