Part 1.

Redefining Our Relationship with the Tarot

In order to begin to work with our decks in this new way, we have to understand what Tarot is, what it isn’t, and what it means to redirect our attention to the present when we work with it. In the first part of this course, we will dive deeply into the concepts within Tarot for What Is with three hours of beautiful, pre-recorded audio and video lessons.


Topics covered:

  • How to utilize the Tarot as a tool for healing and self care
  • How to shift our understanding of Tarot from the future to this moment
  • How to consider each card in the Tarot as an invitation (rather than a signal of what is to be)
  • How to work with the challenging and unexpected in our decks and our lives
  • What the Tarot is (and what it isn’t)
  • Connecting with the Strength card as our guide and ally for this work, and much more.

Part 2.

Being with What Is: Putting the Concepts into Practice

In the second part of Tarot for What Is, we dive into the first fourteen cards of this five part course, exploring the ways that we can cultivate greater intimacy with these cards, and with our own emotional experiences. Participants will receive beautiful, in depth audio lessons for each of the fourteen cards, accompanied by workbooks, meditations and exercises to support them in these concepts and practices.


Transformative rebirth with The Tower

What happens when things in our life suddenly shift? How do we stay with ourselves in these moments? How can we look to them as being for us, not to us? Together, we will cultivate ways to trust and even welcome The Tower in our readings, opening the door to it as a helpful, magnificent ally around times of change and transition.


Sacred incubation with The Star

How do we show up for ourselves when we are healing, or in a time of processing? In this lesson, we will explore ways to welcome The Star into our lives when it calls, surrendering to divine timing around our healing process.


Spacious presence with Two of Swords

When the body calls, do we answer? Do we make regular visits to ourselves, especially in moments of contraction, discomfort, and confusion? In this lesson, we will dive deeply into Two of Swords, exploring ways to create more spaciousness in our connection with ourselves.


Trusting ourselves with The Fool

In this course, we are exploring The Fool from a revolutionary lens: not as a leap, but a way of life. When we align with The Fool, we live from our intuition, putting the ego in the backseat, surrendering to the unknown. What would we do if we didn’t worry about anyone not approving of us? Who would we be? How would we live our lives? In this lesson, we will explore what it means to leave the ground beneath us again and again through trusting ourselves — even in difficult moments.


Trusting our knowing with The Hierophant

With The Fool, we are invited to trust ourselves from the deepest, most fundamental level. With The Hierophant, we are invited to explore our relationship to trusting our knowing. The Hierophant invites us to become our own teachers, our own gurus, our own wise guides. To do so, we must begin to detangle our inherited beliefs, slowly opening to the wisdom that resides within us.


Tending to our triggers with Three of Swords

How do we respond when we are triggered? In this lesson, we will explore the ways in which Three of Swords can be a balm to the heart in moments of wounding, pain, and reactivity, cultivating transformative ways to pause in the midst of these experiences.


Intuitive expansion with The High Priestess

In today’s noisy culture of distraction and consumption, space and silence have become challenging to connect with. In this lesson, we will explore ways to deepen our intuition, and listen to the inner voice with The High Priestess as a guide and ally for this work. 


Setting down our armor with Seven of Wands

When we feel defensive or hypervigilant, how do we respond? Do we fly into action or protection, before we’ve paused and checked in with what’s true? Together, we will dive into the medicine of Seven of Wands, and how we can bring a wise and gentle investigation to defended moments.


Investigating our fears with Nine of Swords

Nine of Swords is the most magnificent ally to begin cultivating a practice of investigating our fears, determining whether or not they are true. When we begin to engage in this practice in a way that feels safe for us, our fears become our allies. Together, we will explore the many ways to begin this kind of practice, and how it can begin to transform our relationship with our thinking, one moment at a time.


The unexpected waves in Five of Cups

Grief moves in a spiral, bringing unexpected waves to our door, often when we are least expecting them. How can we meet those moments with presence? How can we be with the squeezing, the loss, the heartbreak, without pushing it away? Together, we will explore ways to make space for grief, turning to Five of Cups as an ally for this work.


The turning point with Ten of Wands

Ten of Wands is a profoundly powerful clarion call around our energetic lifeforce. It invites us to consider who and what we are devoting our energy to, and more importantly, the empowered action we can take if we feel burned out, or overloaded. Together, we will explore the medicine of Ten of Wands, calling upon it as an ally for this work.


When nothing is clear with The Moon

When life feels unclear, and the road before us uncertain, how do we respond? Being present with the unknown can be very triggering. Together, we will explore the power of choice in The Moon card’s energy, and how we can begin to wisely respond to these moments by pausing, checking in, and aligning with the flow of timing in our lives.


These spiral bodies with Death

Other than birth and evolution, the experience and inevitability of death is one of the very few things that all living beings share with one another. Embracing an intimacy with the Death card as an ally for being in a body that moves through the world spiralically can help us to rest in the inevitability of our humanness, helping us to open our eyes, and become more present with ourselves.


Honoring thresholds with The Chariot

In this course, we are exploring The Chariot from a different perspective: not as a symbol of victory, but as a representation of the endless, beautiful thresholds that we walk through in this life. Together, we will dive deeply into cultivating a deeper intimacy with this practice.
