"I just wanted to send you an email and tell you how much I enjoyed your tarot course. It’s taken me 16 years to finally start learning after I discovered tarot and I must say, you made it so intriguing, enjoyable and not too mysterious to understand!

I very much appreciate that you decided to take the course online, and I would definitely say I enjoyed the online version more because of having the slides right on the screen in front of me, instead of squinting at a big one! Also, loved the small class and how detailed we were able to go." -K

Each class includes optional homework. There won't be any tests. Each class includes a 2-page handout (pdf), summarising key points of the class. There will also be additional material, which can be downloaded from my website at any time (password protected pdf), in total of approx. 200 pages. This material will support you in your own development with Tarot.

I wanted to say thank you so much for the Beginners Tarot Classes, it must have been a strange thing to teach virtually but I so enjoyed it and it helped bring structure and purpose to the week. It also helped deepen my spiritual journey and I’m so grateful.

Thank you again for holding space for us and sharing your experience and knowledge. -KL
