Pure Imagination with Oracle Cards

Are you drawn to divination but not sure which type to use? Let the oracle cards open the world of cartomancy for you.

You may be familiar with Tarot, Runes, Ogham, and I-Ching, but how do oracle cards differ from these methods? Oracle cards can help you with insights and help you to find other ways to look at an issue.

This system of divination comes in a variety of topics and artistic styles which allow for a flexibility of interpretation and personalization. Decks have been designed using a variety of topics from flowers to fairies, fictional characters to pop-culture, and Divine beings to beings of the natural world.

Join us for an evening of exploring this divination tool that connects to our imagination and inner self. Our hands-on class will include selecting a deck (or how it chooses you), using and creating spreads, interpretation, creating your own, and putting it into action.

Bring your favorite deck(s) to unlock the wisdom and messages ready to be revealed to you. Don’t have one yet? No problem, pick one up from the many available at Tree of Life.
