TALKING SYMBOLS SPECIAL WORKSHOP
Powerful ways to revitalize your connection with your cards
with Liz Dean from the United Kingdom

We may know a lot about symbols – the meaning of the High Priestess’s pillars, the Fool’s dog, the World’s dancer. Yet, does the weight of our accumulated knowledge (or fear that we don’t know enough) disrupt our natural, intuitive response to the cards before us? When we respond to our cards in the present moment, without the weight of our knowledge or fear, we become empowered: and our readings become truly insightful and alive.

The impetus for this workshop comes from her experience co-creating and writing HBO’s Game of Thrones Tarot: a process that taught her just how the ‘knowledge reflex’ can keep us in the past, in our archives, rather than in the present moment. And from this,she devised ‘I.I.F.’ – ‘instant intuitive focus’ – a technique you can apply to any spread to be in the ‘now’, freeing up your creativity and powering up your intuition. Group exercises and readings help you identify the symbols that are talking to you, activate these symbols, work with them as living energies, and open the doorways to your higher self, and to other levels and forms of consciousness.

Throughout the workshop, she will also go behind the scenes of the Game of Thrones Tarot. Along with a group interpretation of a selection of cards, you will also get to see why some Game of Thrones ideas were discarded (as knowledge got in the way) while other alignments between card, character and plot worked perfectly.

This workshop is for experienced readers: those starting out on your tarot journey, and for those hoping to create their own decks, now or in the future.

You’ll discover how to:

  • Sense the personal symbols that speak to you
  • Activate the symbols you are drawn to in a reading
  • Trust your intuitive responses more deeply
  • Take greater risks in card interpretation
