Through instructor dialogue, onscreen visuals, engaging and illustrative stories, live demonstrations and question-and-answer sessions, Paul will lead you through the basics of the Tarot. Discover the Tarot as an intuitive tool to access your inner wisdom and guidance, and nurture your growth.* Learn the core concepts and guidelines for starting your personal journey through the vibrant and illuminating world of the Tarot. More than simply exploring card meanings, Paul creates a “soul classroom,” by drawing parallels between the Tarot archetypes and practical wisdom teachings of the world’s great mystical traditions.
