On July 18 through 20, people will gather at Sam Sorbara Hall, University of Toronto, for the Toronto Tarot Symposium. This gathering will provide a forum for people to explore and enrich their understanding of tarot, whether expert, novice, or just plain curious.

Nine presenters, from Canada, the U.S., and Great Britain will offer presentations on such varied topics as tarot as a therapeutic tool, creating a deck, combining tarot with labyrinth, exploring past lives, do's and don'ts of a tarot consultation, tarot and numerology, and knowing your holy guardian angel.

James Wells, a respected Toronto tarot consultant and the symposium's Program Director, says, "I'm excited about an event which takes tarot out of the realm of tacky fortune-telling and demonstrates its versatility as a means of self-empowerment, depth, and creativity." Amy Lee-Rosenberg, another Toronto tarot practitioner and the Symposium Manager adds, "This is a first for Toronto. It'll be great to have so many interesting people under one roof."

In recent years, tarot has gained not only popularity, but also respect. One can now read literature on the subject by psychologists, anthropologists, theologians, and doctoral students. The colourful pasteboards contain symbols which not only depict outward events, but also point to something deeper and greater within the human psyche.


WHEN: Saturday, July 19 & Sunday, July 20, 2003. We begin at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday (registration). We end around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday (the conclusion of the closing ritual). There will be a welcome cocktail party at 7 p.m. on Friday, the 18th.

WHERE: Sam Sorbara Hall, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario. Very central. Before and/or after the symposium, you can take in the joys of our vibrant city - theatre, shopping, sight-seeing, walking along the harbor-front, lounging on Toronto Island, parks and ravines, fabulous bars and restaurants, or whatever you choose.
