Omega Tarot Conference 2012

The Tarot: Readers & Deck Creators

Imagine if you could go back 100 years to attend a seminar with A. E. Waite and Pamela Smith, creators of the Rider Deck, the world’s most famous tarot. What would it be like to have Waite and Smith teach you how to read the cards?
This conference brings together an extraordinary group of tarot readers and tarot deck creators for a wonderful weekend of readings, art, and practical skills. This year’s conference features three tarot artists plus two deck conceptualizers. Discover what inspired them to “dream the tarot onwards,” creating new images and ideas deeply rooted in the tarot’s ancient traditions.
No matter what your level as a reader or your knowledge of tarot is, learning directly from deck creators will help you develop you own natural abilities. Discover what inspires a new deck and what goes into the making of cards that really work. Guided by this passion and knowledge, we do readings—for ourselves, friends, and complete strangers.
Creating new decks has changed these teachers’ lives. Learn how the passion for tarot can change yours.
Bring your favorite decks, and ideas for your own deck, if you are creating one. Mary K. Greer and Rachel Pollack are also teaching Reading Tarot Cards With Magic & Wisdom; July 29-August 3.
