When you join us, you will soon discover that the Tarot is not just a deck of 78 cards; it is a real place – a place where your mind meets the mysteries and your imagination floats over the landscape of time itself, gaining insight into your past, present and future. It is into this
magical place that we travel together, using the cards as our map and compass.
The tarot cards themselves originated in Italy in the late 15th century, and were used for fortune-telling as well as card games. There are now more than a thousand different decks in publication, and their popularity is growing on a daily basis.
We believe that Tarot is a a wisdom tool – Tarosophy – to engage life, not escape it. We teach methods of Tarot to divine your life, and make your way better through it – understanding more along the way.
We do not teach Tarot to pass the time nor distract you from real-world issues. We are passionate but not obsessed with our Tarot, we learn and teach it deeply but are open to new opinions. We are focused but friendly, supportive but challenging.
Our aim is to restore the spiritual dignity of Tarot.
