HOW TO PREPARE

  • Before coming to class, please think of ONE problem, decision, or realistic goal you’d like to explore
  • Also, please read this article by Ralph.
  • If you’re a beginner, please consider using Ralph’s Cheat Sheet  to write the meanings on each card in your deck. If you go this route, please use an Ultrafine Sharpie and give the cards time to dry before putting them back in the deck. This will make your readings much faster. Please note: Ralph doesn’t use reverse cards in his readings, so there’s only one meaning per card. Another option is to purchase the Apprentice Tarot Deck — which has the meanings already written on each card.


CLASS STRUCTURE

  • Each participant will lead the class for 20-minutes.
  • When it’s your turn to lead, you’ll start by sharing a problem, difficult decision, or specific goal you’d like to explore with the class.
  • While you’re discussing your situation, your classmates will shuffle their decks and pull three cards. Each classmate will be given TWO MINUTES to share insights about your situation. You’ll continue receiving this feedback until your 20 minutes runs out.
  • As leader, you decide how your 20 minutes are used.  Some participants may choose to be brief about their situation so they can receive as many readings as possible.  While others may need more time to discuss the complexities of their situation — and consequently receive fewer readings.  It’s up to you 🙂
  • An alarm will be set to 18 minutes.  Once it goes off, you’ll have two minutes to wrap things up before leadership is passed to the next member.
  • Half way through the class will be a 10-minute break.
