About this experience
We at She's Lost Control are delighted to introduce our first official SLC School offering!
We are starting with our classic and one of our most well-loved modalities, Tarot. Tarot is an ancient art-form that has been practiced over hundreds of years and here at SLC we celebrate this while offering a modern and person-centered twist to this classic modality.
Over this 5-week course, you'll be taught and guided by our renowned faculty, all with years of experience in reading and teaching others. This beginners course is open to everyone with a desire to get to know Tarot from a personal and empowering perspective, whether you're brand new or you'd like to lay strong foundations down for your Tarot practice.
Each week you'll receive a workbook for that week's focus, complete with journaling prompts, exercises and space for reflection. All the sessions will be recorded and yours to keep and you'll also receive a guided meditation for each session that will assist with the at-home practices set after class. You'll also receive access to an exclusive Facebook group to connect to your fellow explorers, as well as our faculty and you'll be given a certificate of completion after week 5.
Week 1 - Elements and the Suits
Wednesday 29th September
It is said that humans aren't just part of nature, we are nature itself. Week 1 will introduce the suits of the Minor Arcana as well as the elemental significance of each one. Explore these themes and elements both in the cards, in nature, as well as inside of you. You'll journey through Ace to Ten, learning how to build a relationship with the numbers and sequencing. This session will contain practical aspects too so that you have the chance to practice what you learn. This session will be taught by Bel Senlle and Kasia Gwilliam.
Week 2 - Court Cards
Wednesday 6th October
Yas Queen! Rounding off our exploration of the Minor Arcana, week 2 will introduce the cards of the court, however they appear in your deck. Kings, Queens, Knights, Pages - who are these figures and why do they matter? This week we'll be getting deep into relationships with the court cards, learning how to get to know their qualities and personalities as well as exploring the themes of masculine and feminine, youth and maturity. We'll also be playing with embodiment with fun and practical exercises. This session will be taught by Kasia Gwilliam and Lucy Porter.
Week 3 - Major Arcana 1

Week 5 - Pulling it all Together

Things always fall into place. Our final week will cover how to pull all of the lessons, learnings and insights together so you can solidify the relationships you've made to the cards so far. We'll be recapping and reflecting on the lessons of the elements and court cards in the Minor Arcana, as well as the powerful messages of the Major Arcana. You'll be practicing spreads, learning how cards from different sections can speak to each other and how to weave these into impactful, personal and accurate readings for yourself.
