Learn and Practice Mindfulness Meditation (No experience necessary)

Meditation practice is an opportunity to observe your own mind and make friends with one's self. While we focus on the breath and allow thoughts to pass through our mind (without attaching to them), we begin to settle and gain clarity. In our fast-paced culture, the need to be still and without distraction is so important for our health and happiness. This class involves sitting and walking meditation.

TAROT AND RELATIONSHIPS
We tend to think of Tarot as a tool for prediction, and while this is certainly important, the cards' greatest value may lie in their ability to guide us through the maze of feelings, joys, and complications that come in relationships--a "GPS for the soul," as Rachel calls the Tarot. Tarot can help us understand ourselves, and the wondrous things that can happen when we join with others. In this workshop we will do what Rachel calls a "Wisdom reading" to ask the Tarot about the meaning of relationships, and how to celebrate them. We will look at readings that two people can do together to understand, and honor, what they create together, and a reading a person can do individually to look at a powerful loving relationship. Plus, how we can use the cards to explore what Rachel calls "archetypal theater," a playful, sometimes moving, sometime hilarious, way to try out new roles with each other based on the character in the cards.

The workshop is experiential and open to all levels (with a brief introduction to Tarot for newcomers). We ask that you bring a Tarot deck of your own choice, so that each person has a chance to experience the pictures.

Rachel Pollack is the author of 36 books of both fiction and non-fiction, most recently The Burning Serpent Oracle, co-created with Robert M. Place. Her book 78 Degrees of Wisdom has been described by Tarot readers and teachers all over the world as "the Bible of Tarot readers." She is also an award-winning novelist, a poet, and a visual artist, the creator of The Shining Tribe Tarot. Rachel has taught workshops in the U. S. and Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and China. Her books have been translated into 14 languages.
