Honing Your Intuition
with Monique Champagne 12/17/2020 5:00pm CST
Using tarot and oracle cards can bring awareness to where you are in life and what is important to you. This is not a tarot/oracle reading, but instead, Monique will guide you through tools that allow you to utilize cards on your own to connect with your intuition and find deeper authenticity. The workshop will include a guided experiential exercise to allow you to explore your own knowledge about your own life – you can use your own cards to follow along, or use the card options Monique pulls. We will explore some interpretations of universal symbols and archetypes, visualization, and meaning-making. Each participant will be encouraged to create their own connections (by honing their intuition) and will leave with something to further meditate on as it applies to their own life experiences.
Supply list: your own deck (optional), paper, and pen.
