Diploma in Professional Tarot

One weekend a month – next course starts Autumn 2020

Course Overview

This one-year course is intended for those who wish to work as professional Tarot Readers.

The course covers the Tarot in depth together with psychic and personal development training to enable you to act as an intuitive Tarot counsellor. Business and marketing skills are also included so you can become fully equipped to earn a living working with the Tarot.

We do not believe each card has a single meaning, which merely needs to be memorised in order to give readings. Each card can hold a huge variety of meanings, and it requires a combination of knowledge and intuition to fully interpret each them in a reading. We believe the Tarot is a profound and deep meta-spiritual system which offers both a path of personal development and service to others. Many people feel that being a Tarot Reader is part of who they are rather than just something they do. This course offers such an option to those who would choose it.

This course includes over 20 hours of guided visualizations.  Some will be given in the class, but you will also be able to play these at home through your phone or computer.

No experience or knowledge is required in order to attend this course. However, the training is intensive and in-depth and therefore requires commitment and dedication. In addition to attendance in class, case studies, written assignments, and other homework exercises are included. Assessment will take the form of written assignments and a formal examination at the end of the year’s training.

The aim of this course is to train you to an extremely high level. By the end of this course you will have an extremely detailed and broad knowledge of the Tarot together with solid personal and professional Tarot reading skills. You will be fully capable of entering the world of the Professional Tarot Reader with confidence and expertise.

Becoming a Tarot reader of the highest order is more than just learning the cards, it is a journey of personal development.
