Tarot Diva Blog – Readers Studio Survival Guide

The Tarot School’s Readers Studio 2010 is now a distant memory but my mind is still reeling from the experience.

I’ve compiled a survival guide for Readers Studio 2011.

Don’t Leave Your Blackberry at a Table Full of Tarot Readers – Returned to the bar, only to discover the lovely ladies of Tarot snapping photos of their happy place on my phone. Thanks for the memories girls. I haven’t tagged you on Facebook . . . yet . . .

Don’t Bother Sleeping – Think you’ll get some shut eye? Think again – especially when you and your roommate gab all night, mulling over the day’s events. After hours adventures wield surprising, Tarot Readers Gone Wild style entertainment . . .

Bring Snacks – Debbie Lake and I did our best to make our hotel room “suitelike.” We stocked up on fruit, chocolate, nuts, wine and snacks to save the added expense of jacked up hotel food prices.

Ground Yourself – Spending a weekend with two hundred creative, intuitive Tarot souls is invigorating. What with all that psychic energy flying, it also can be draining. Visit your room periodically for power naps and grounding practice.

Enjoy Every Second – The Readers Studio is an unbelievable opportunity to meet, mix and mingle with people who are as passionate about the art of Tarot as you are. Soak it all up cause it goes fast.

Integrate – The greatest gift of the Readers Studio is what you learn. Sharing ideas and insights with the readers in attendance opens new levels of understanding. The master classes from Robert Place, Mary Greer and Elinor Greenberg offered dozens of new ways to work with Tarot. All of this inspiration adds up to an experience, that integrated into your practice, makes your Tarot work soar to new heights.

Side note – The highlight of the weekend was the Saturday Night’s Banquet. Everyone dressed up as their favorite Tarot character. I’ve included a clip below from the video that inspired my Saturday Night Banquet costume. Nancy Antenucci staged a Tarot Troop performance in which I was to embody a shapeshifter of Water and Sky. Hey Nance, let’s try this choreography next year!!!

  1. LOL. I’m not sure I’m old enough to see the happy place of the Tarotworld infamous and famous!

    You didn’t tell us about the delightful prosperity stuff you distributed to promote your upcoming book Tarot Diva!!!!! I am so looking forward to that book. I’m sure it is as delightful as your Diva self.

  2. Hee he he!

    The money charms I created to promote Tarot Diva are divine and can be used in conjunction with a Ten of Pentacles Money Spell found within the book. Your charm contains ten coins, silver stars, Peppermint and Gun Tea Gunpowder to get all that fiscal energy going! Wrapped in a holographic, sparking yellow cloth representing manifestation and knotted with a green ribbon to seal your financial security.

    I must say, creating them was a massive act of abundance in and of itself. Lots of fun! What’s even better? They really work 🙂

    Thanks for your love and support. I must say, winning your book was one of the highlights of the weekend. Meant to be!!!

  3. Thank you for the money charm, Sasha.. and for the description of all that went into making it.. makes it all the more precious!

    “happy places”..that’s funny

  4. Oh man, I wish I’d known there was food in your room! 😀
    Seriously tho’ bringing food with you is a great tip I’ll have to remember next time. My only complaint about the whole RS weekend was how overpriced the food at the hotel restaurant was.

  5. Right??? Check in with me next year . . . I always snoop around for cheap, yummy eats. There was a grocery store about ten blocks from the hotel. Debbie and I even secured a little fridge for our room 🙂
