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
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
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
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.
