The Tarot can truly be a beacon of light in profoundly dark moments.

The Tarot can be a profound ally and anchor in moments of big noise from the thinking mind, helping us to identify our brain from our soul and then how to wisely respond to our circumstances from a centered place.

Together, we will journey into the basics of how Tarot can be a tool to help clarify the truth of the present moment when things feel muddled or unclear, and how we can begin to apply these skills to our day to day life, including the moments in life where we can become triggered. 

This subject is the backbone and core of my work with the Tarot, and I have had the honor of teaching this subject and material for the last five years. What I share in this workshop was developed through my 22 years of working with the Tarot as an ally and anchor point in my own healing journey through physical abuse, brain chemistry, breakdowns, and complex PTSD.

Develop concrete practices with your deck that you can turn to while in moments of crisis or contraction.

A Gentle Word


Lindsay is not a licensed mental health practitioner, and this class is not a substitute for therapy, and/or a psychiatrist/appropriate mental health care. Neither Lindsay, or Trauma and the Tarot, claims or intends to fix, treat, heal, or diagnose trauma or any health or medical condition. This class, Trauma and the Tarot, is a supportive guidepost on how to begin to include the Tarot as one of the many anchoring tools in our toolbox of self resourcing in the journey of processing and unraveling trauma within ourselves.

Please note that this material may be triggering, as it can be very triggering to even discuss or think about trauma for some folx. We honor that completely. Please be gentle with yourself, and trust your inner knowing, your body, and your timing when engaging with the material in this class.



About the Material


This mini course is a deeper continuation of Lindsay’s episode about Trauma and the Tarot on the Tarot for the Wild Soul podcast, which was based on a class taught with the same name online, at New Women’s Space in Brooklyn, NY, and Otherwild in Los Angeles, CA. It is not a recording of the class taught in 2018, but a fresh take on the material with new information and structure.

Trauma and the Tarot is not a theory course, and will not go into detail about the meanings of cards.

Sponsorship Opportunities


There are sponsorship options for Trauma and the Tarot, rooted in reparational structures and community care. We invite you to read through the options, tune in with your knowing, reflect on your privilege, and choose whether giving or receiving sponsorship is in alignment for you.

Six of Pentacles Sponsorship Fund. This is a special opportunity that invites our community members who benefit from systemic and or financial privilege to sponsor all or some of the tuition of a student. This opportunity is called Six of Pentacles sponsorship, because it allows folx who benefit from privilege to leverage it in service of creating opportunities for folx from systemically marginalized communities to participate in our course with ease. This card teaches us the sacred and crucial balance between giving and receiving, and acknowledges the importance of reparations.

If you are able to do so, please consider making a donation to our sponsorship fund to support course access for Black, Indigenous, people of color, members of the LGBTQIAP2-S community, folx living with disabilities, and undocumented folx. Our sponsorship offering is an opportunity for members of these communities, who regularly experience systemic marginalization, to step to the front of the line and deeply receive. 100% of donations received go into our tuition sponsorship fund.
