Intuitive Tarot Reading as a Complimentary Self-Care Practice for Helping Professionals
10 Minute Mini Tarot Sessions
Complementary sessions for all interested conference attendees by Erin Brown, MSW, RSW who has 20 years of social work experience in health care, critical incident stress management, education and private practice. Outside of her clinical roles, she has been immersing herself in the study and practices of the Tarot (also for 20 years!). Erin believes that the Tarot offers opportunities to explore personal meaning-making and self-reflection through intuitive interpretation of symbols, images and card dynamics.
Various times will be available on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, June 21 & 22; Friday, June 23 all day and evening, and Saturday, June 23, morning.
A link to book a virtual mini-session will be available on June 21, 2023. Limited spots available.
Intuitive Tarot reading practices for self-care allow us a forum in which to engage our inner knowing and personal meaning making as guidance. Intentionally setting a safe space for ourselves, honouring our inner wisdom and turning attention inwards can help shape an ongoing self care practice that accompanies our current self care strategies.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own Tarot or Oracle cards (optional) and items to journal with during this session with facilitator prompts. The facilitator will be providing creative opportunities for intuitive tarot card reading by those without their own Tarot or Oracle deck. The session will include a brief overview of the Tarot, with a specific focus on intuitive Tarot card reading practices. Gain knowledge about self-care specific Tarot spreads and how to create your own personalized Tarot spreads for self-care reflection and related practices. Attention will also be given to the limitations of intuitive tarot card reading for self-care and how to avoid unhealthy practices. This session will not centre the Tarot as a system for divination and will not aim to predict future events.
Participants of this session will have opportunities to practice foundational intuitive tarot reading skills for self-reflection and self-care, and will leave the session with their own intuited self-care messages. Participants of all levels of Tarot knowledge and skills are welcome! Handouts will include prompts for further practice and related journaling prompts, along with additional resources for further developing your own unique relationship with the Tarot.
Erin will also give a workshop on this topic as part of the virtual
program on Friday, June 23 from 4-5 pm Atlantic.
