Three Truths about Teaching Tarot
I love teaching tarot, almost as much as I love reading tarot. I have taught tarot in some really interesting places, from military bases to churches, colleges, adult education programs, international tarot conferences, festivals and naturist resorts. Modern technology now allows me to teach online, for students worldwide.
I like to think I am always developing as a tarot teacher.
I also think that teaching tarot is unlike teaching most things since the student will never (and should never) do it exactly as the teacher does. Each tarot reader must find their own tarot style – it’s the teacher’s job to assist in that transformative process.
Beyond that one defining truth, here are three other things that are true for me about teaching tarot.
Everyone benefits from learning tarot. Most tarot students will never become professional readers, and that’s fine. But tarot will help each student discover more about themselves and the way Spirit works in their lives.
Learning tarot is about learning spiritual lessons. As much as learning card interpretations, tarot study is the study of the cards’ spiritual lessons for us.
A variety of tarot decks in the classroom, or the student’s collection, is a good thing. I believe in comparative tarot. If we can see the way many different artists and traditions depict a card we will develop a better understanding of tarot overall.
