2007 UK Tarot Conference

Uktarot-1Last year’s 2006 Tarot Conference in London turned out, for personal and professional reasons, to be the high point of my “Tarot year.” In addition to adding host Kim Arnold (and her great husband, Martin) to my list of good friends, the event introduced me to a warm, welcoming group of Tarot enthusiasts and professionals. The weekend was perfect in every way — just thinking about it makes me happy.

So: I’m excited to report I’m now packing my bags for the 2007 Tarot Conference! Like last year, we’ll start the weekend on Friday night, October 19th, with two pre-conference workshops: “Making Friends with the Spooky Cards” and “Unlocking the Meaning of Dreams.” These are practical, hands-on workshops exploring valuable techniques every Tarot reader can put to use right away. (They’re beginner-friendly, too, of course!)

On Saturday, October 20th, I have the honor of kicking off the morning with “Test the Tarot,” a session based on “What’s in the Cards for You?” We’ll cover 20 different applications for reading the cards … so bring your favorite deck, hang on to your hats, and get ready to put the Tarot to the test!

Other speakers include Geraldine Beskin, Riccardo Minetti, Suzanne Corbie, Miranda Gray, and David Goddard … and, of course, host Kim Arnold will be on hand to keep things moving in the right direction!

The conference web site has all the details. Please join me, if you can!

  • Tarot cards, Magical Thinking — I have a hard time enjoying your Lucid Dreaming book knowing that you believe in magic. A little bit of critical thinking and research will reveal that Tarot, I Ching etc… are nothing but magical thinking. Statistics have shown that Tarot and I Ching are predicting nothing, and never have…at least no better than guessing at the future. You get a few hits, but most misses are forgotten.

  • Hi, Bob. Thanks for stopping by.

    I’m always amazed how many people who advocate “critical thinking and research” feel perfectly comfortable:

    – condemning books they’ve never read, and

    – drawing conclusions about my personal beliefs without asking me what they are … or reading my books to find out more about them.

    If you’re objective and open-minded enough to actually crack the cover of one of my books on Tarot or I Ching, you may find my approach involves a lot less magical thinking than you assume. (You might also discover that I’m frequently criticized by the metaphysic community for an approach to oracles that is too practical and not magical enough by half.)

    Of course, that will require some critical thought and research on your part. The real questions is: are you willing to engage in what you’re so quick to recommend to others?
