I have been reading tarot for over 25 years. It’s been both a fun hobby and a useful lens for understanding people and life processes for me.
Tarot is many centuries worth of people thinking about people, how we are, how we feel, the circumstances in which we find ourselves. For me, it’s a set of symbols that are meant to point to processes and experiences in a human life. It’s just a map for navigating the terrain.
The Tarot is full of images of people. The people on the cards are meant to embody and represent different experiences. If you know me and my work at all, you know I’m pretty much obsessed with how we make meaning out of our experiences, and how our bodies reflect those experiences and that meaning. Hence my emphasis on posture and body language. And hence the new workshop I’m offering mid-November, Postures of the Tarot.
Here is a teaser video for some of the ideas we’ll be talking about. Check it out!
