Experience 3: Reading the Soul’s Story
A Three Day Introduction To Astrology, Tarot and Intimate Communication on The Land
Through the practices of meditation we become deeply aware of the physical states and emotional processes of ourselves and our partners. What would it be like if, in addition to this awareness, we could also develop and cultivate our intuitive senses, to put our attention on our inner worlds, on our life purposes and passages, and on the complex tapestry of past, present and future which inform our lives?
In this three day workshop, participants will be guided to develop and apply their own intuitive powers, to be able to read themselves and their partners with remarkable clarity and accuracy, and to apply the language and tools of astrology and tarot reading to describe and articulate those insights.
