with Mary K. Greer
If you’re anywhere near Brighton in the UK in June, don’t miss the opportunity to spend a day or two with internationally renowned Tarot and Lenormand expert, Mary K. Greer. Choose from a full day exploring the Lenormand oracle divination system, a half day fine-tuning your approach to reading the 16 court cards in the Tarot deck or take advantage of the workshop package which gives you both workshops at a discounted rate.
Saturday 17 June: 9.30am to 4.30pm
Reading Lenormand (for Fun and Profit??)
The Lenormand Cards are a 220 year old divination system that provides specific, concrete answers to mundane, life questions. They are emblematic rather than symbolic and are therefore read according to a vocabulary, syntax and grammar (without which you have just another pretty oracle deck).
Mary will be sharing the traditional method of reading Lenormand that is precise, accurate and fun. In addition to learning, or refreshing your knowledge of, the original meanings and layouts, you will do lots of practice readings focusing on yes/no methods, finding lost objects, the Square of 9 and the 36-card Grand Tableau. Learn to read a Grand Tableau in fifteen minutes! Make this fabulous deck your reliable go-to tool for addressing your everyday concerns and those of clients.

Sunday 18 June: 9.30am to 1pm
The Wisdom of the Tarot Court
Have you ever been stumped by the Court Cards in a Tarot spread? Then this experiential workshop is for you! The 16 cards of the Tarot court are incredibly powerful in a reading. As the voices in your head, they offer advice and direction. They also define physical and personality characteristics of people you encounter.
Learn to quickly identify their purpose in any reading and use these cards to great advantage. Agatha Christie’s detective, Miss Marple, said she solved crimes by recognizing that people were like characters she knew well from her own village. Come to know the Court Cards as the wise inhabitants of your own inner realm.
