Chris Butler discovered the Tarot back in 1980. Forty years on, he’s a multiply published Tarot author & illustrator. He created the Healing Light Tarot and Healing Light Lenormand Oracle, (Lo Scarabeo). For Schiffer/Red Feather, he has authored and illustrated The Son Tarot – Mysticism, Meditation and Divination for Gay Men and Lenormand Cartomancy. He illustrated Kay Stopforth’s Quantum Tarot 2.0, (Lo Scarabeo).  Chris also works as an artist/illustrator, has a degree in Theology and a passion for Classical Music.

Workshop ‘Sacred Tarot, Healing Tarot’  Today we explore the Tarot deck and reading table as ‘Sacred Space’; a place to resolve inner conflict, face fears, meet the Divine and unlock our fullest potential. Much of this workshop will be based on personal experience – how I muddled my way through inner transformation whilst creating the Son Tarot and the Healing Light Tarot. Included.

  • The Star card & the Mandorla – How to create safe, sacred space in your readings
  • Using the Tarot as a safe tool for resolving our inner conflicts
  • All the World’s a stage, and the Tarot is your script – how the cards reflect the world around us
  • The unique power of Pamela Colman Smith’s illustrations and why she still blazes a trail through modern Tarot culture
  • Guided meditations with the cards as visual ‘doorways’ for us to step through
  • Talking with the Tarot archetypes.
  • How the Nine of Wands ‘wounded warrior’ finds his healing
  • Seeing the best and the worst of ourselves mirrored in the cards
  • The Tarot teaches us to forgive ourselves, to love ourselves, to laugh at ourselves
  • The Tarot teaches us to forget ourselves

  Liz Dean  An author and intuitive, writer and teach what I love: tarot, divination and self-development.
