Join three international tarot creators this solstice as Caitlín & John Matthews and Mark Ryan explore the magical landscapes of the tarot.
With new spreads and deep ways of interacting with tarot, we will conclude our divinatory adventures through the tarot landscape with a group ritual The Paths of the Wildwood. Bring at least one tarot! This course is held in a beautiful 19th century Cotswold house, once the home of the Capel family and now a Steiner College: set in its own gracious grounds, with ancient trees and a sacred spring, Hawkwood has been the home of the Matthews’ annual open mystery school gatherings since 1985.
We are joined by special guest, Mark Ryan, who returns home to UK to join for this once in a lifetime magical weekend.
