Enjoy a rising tide of empowerment and end your daily guessing game about life. Find the guidance you seek when you say “Yes!” to the Beauty of Tarot.

Join renowned master teacher Brenda Rose for this playful and magical journey through the sacred stories of tarot. You’ll gain a meaningful connection with the cards and learn to provide insightful readings.  Stories of the major and minor arcana will be shared in an intimate setting and customized way. The Beauty of Tarot can amplify your spiritual transformation by helping you cultivate more unconditional love and intuitive guidance for your daily life.  

This is an immersive and interactive workshop. The magic of tarot comes alive as you practice giving and receiving readings with your classmates under the supportive guidance of Brenda Rose and her graduate students. We’ll learn vibrant tarot spreads together and discover how both the evident and esoteric tarot stories are activated.

In this workshop, we will learn to:

  • Meditate and work energy practices.
  • Engage with each of the tarot cards through their stories and interpretations.
  • Practice giving and receiving readings through inclusive, judgment- and projection-free language.

This immersion welcomes all levels of experience, and each participant receives Brenda’s original deck, The Beauty of Tarot, and a workbook chronicling each card as part of the tuition.
