This week, I celebrate my Solar Return and there’s a lot I want to share with you:

Synchronicity: A Spark of Spiritual Communication

Throughout history people have told fortunes with all manner of things: scattered bones, the remnants of tea leaves in a cup, tossed coins, watching birds across the sky, anything.  It has only been since the eighteenth century that Tarot has been used to divine intellectual and spiritual pathways.  Yet all of these methods stem from the same innate curiosity to know what is going to happen in advance.  The practitioners of these rituals possess an understanding that all things have a relationship to one other.  As Rachel Pollack states in Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom, “everything is connected, everything has meaning and nothing occurs at random.”

Hone Your Intuition With Heroic Tarot Workshops! (Updated)

Aces

Returning to San Francisco after being gone for five months has been like putting on my favorite pair of jeans.  So comfortable and fashionable too!  Many thanks to all the lovely folks who have received Heroic Tarot readings thus far at Swankety Swank and at Alternative Press Expo! In addition to my individual October appointments, I am now offering classes at Workshop on Thursday October 20, Sunday October 30, and Saturday November 5!  Here’s what’s in your future:

Ditch that daily horoscope addiction and leave the ouija in the closet with your VHS copy of Witchboard.  The true path to keeping tabs on your future moves is Heroic Tarot!  In this new class on DIY divination, you will hone your intuition with award-winning Heroic Tarot reader STORM! For both complete beginners and experienced practitioners, this class offers an overview of important Tarot concepts. You will examine the Major and Minor Arcana, the Court cards, and the the elemental suits. Then the class will interact with one another as revolving partners for perception training exercises. Learn how you can use the Tarot as a tool for connection and communication with Divine energy!  Oh, and did we mention that the X-Men were involved?  STORM’s notorious X-Men Tarot deck will be exhibited in class.  I mean…X-Men AND the occult?  Like having Stan Lee draw your future while Jimmy Page composes the soundtrack.  Um, yes please.

Building A Better Doll: Doll Shaman 101

Talosa
Starting in November I will be teaching a doll workshop at Swankety Swank!  Now you can learn how to modify Barbie dolls like the ones I sell on etsy!  You can choose to take one class or all four!  Here’s the syllabus!

Building a Better Doll: Doll Shaman 101

Ready to modify your Barbie? In this class I will teach you how to transform your doll into your own One Of A Kind creation! You will learn how to properly repaint your doll’s face, modify her arms and curl her hair with each of the classes. We are focusing on completing one doll for this workshop but you will need to bring at least three Barbie dolls. Your Barbie dolls need to have long straight hair and plastic arms that are not jointed at the elbows.

A New Face: Removing the factory paint and repainting your Barbie’s face!  Sunday, November 15 3-5pm

Body Sculpting: Learn how to shape your Barbie doll’s arms and hands!  Sunday, November 22 3-5pm

Curls, Curls, Curls: It’s time for a permanent wave!  Sunday, November 29 3-5pm

Getting Dressed: Hand sewing an outfit for your doll!  Sunday, December 6 3-5pm

I’m super excited about this class!  Here are some dolls from my modified doll collection!
