Do you want to learn how to read Tarot cards?
Or perhaps develop your Tarot reading skills?
At The Academy of Tarot, we run Tarot teachings to suit all levels of skill. You can choose from:
We passionately believe in advancing the study of Tarot as a genuine and meaningful pursuit, giving Tarot the credibility, sincerity and importance that it deserves.
When it comes to understanding Tarot, we believe there are 3 approaches that need to be considered:
1. Mind: It is vital to have a proper understanding of the basic symbols and meanings of the cards. We teach with the Rider-Waite deck, as we believe that once students have mastered this deck, they will be proficient in reading most other decks and can go on to choose a deck that really resonates with them.
2. Emotional (or body wisdom): It is very easy as a reader to get caught up in all your own issues and processes, which affect the clarity and meaning of the reading for your client. Becoming a better Tarot reader means that you are also on your own path of personal development; understanding your shadow side and learning to come into a pure clear space, so that you can be the best reader possible.
3. Spiritual: Once the basic definitions have been assimilated, the gift of the Tarot reader is to understand the cards; not from the logical left side of the brain, but to begin to open the door to reading the cards using their intuition and understanding of the messages that the images are attempting to convey. The reader is an intermediary and translator of the cards, and just as dreams speak in images rather than words, so the Tarot is speaking its own language with which you need to become familiar.
The more you delve into Tarot, the more you will discover that Tarot is a lifelong spiritual path and is connected to many other esoteric disciplines, such as astrology, numerology and Kabbalah. Here at the Academy of Tarot, we are also interested in Quantum Physics and how this might help us to understand the mysterious workings of the Tarot.
Courses are run on a one-to-one basis from our consultation room at St. Olav’s City Business Centre (go to the Contact Us page to find out where we are). However, we also offer an online Beginners’ Tarot course, so you can study at your leisure at home.
Beginners’ Tarot: Ideal for those who are new to the world of Tarot and wish to understand the images on the cards and be able to identify the various symbols and hidden messages they contain.
Intermediate Tarot: Once you understand the basic definitions of Tarot, our Intermediate Tarot course introduces you to the deeper meanings of the cards and more complex spreads. We begin to look at the major themes, such as numerology, astrology, Kabbalah, occult readings and psychology.
Tarot Supervision/advanced: If you would like to continue your Tarot journey with supervision sessions, we would be happy to help.
Readings: Debbie Winterbourne can also offer private readings. The cost is £55 per 50 minutes. Contact email@example.com for more information.
