DESCRIPTION Let's get rid of the tired old stereotypes about Tarot. This conference will delve into the less explored aspects of this "wicked pack of cards," away from the cliché of divination or parlor trick. Tarot can be immensely helpful as a tool for introspection, by inviting us to project our personal history on the cards and surprising us by telling our stories back in a way we never thought of, helping us gain new perspectives on our choices. We will examine Tarot as a "prompt machine" that can be used to ask the questions that we may not have thought of outside of this unusual invitation of thinking; we will understand how the cards can help us reshape our personal narratives and claim them back for ourselves, and also how this versatile tool can be used as a means of creative inspiration, from narrative writings to painting and poetry. This session is not about divining the future, but instead delving deeper into ourselves. You will gain a better understanding of Tarot's practical applications and how it can be used to improve your own personal understanding. Join us and be prepared to engage in a serious and thought-provoking examination of Tarot as a tool for self-discovery.
