wellness, clarity of mind and joy

Embedded within the Tarot are esoteric symbols that reveal deeper mysteries upon reflection. These symbols map a way to a larger sense of wellbeing, healing and freedom from suffering.

In this four week series learn how to go into deep meditation with healing ancient Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Norse gods and goddesses. A rare opportunity to experience a western form of empowerment and transformation.
