Last weekend I attended this years UK Tarot Conference in London and wanted to share some of the experience with you. This fab event bringing together teachers, authors and students from around the world, takes place every October and is organised by my lovely friend Kim Arnold. Pop here to find out more about Kim and the Conference including next year's dates and read about past conferences.
The Yeti ( my affectionate nick name for my husband) dropped me at the conference suite on the Friday morning just in time for registration. We had 2 rooms set up this year, one for merchandise, readings and nibbles and the other for the presentations. This was a really welcome upgrade on the space we had last year and it added a nice laid back vibe to an already very friendly and pretty chilled out event.
After a few hellos, nosing in goodie bags and getting bums settled in seats, the weekend was kicked off with a little meditation led by Wicca Meir Spring. As it was the 15th year of the conference, the 'theme' was Temperance ( we'll get to the trollops later ;) ) For this meditation we were asked to stand and eyes closed, feel the balance of energy in our bodies as a pendulum, eventually settling on our centres.
Kim Arnold herself followed with a talk on using Tarot as an emotional support tool. I was particularly looking forward to this workshop, having been a part of Kim's Tarot Food Group on Facebook for a while where members support each other on our personal weight loss journeys physically and emotionally, with Tarot. I knew this class would give me some more valuable tools.
