02-12-2022 - Seeing Dreams: Cultivating Radical Self-Love Through Tarot

In this live workshop, which includes both excerpts from Body Positive Tarot and new material exclusive to this event, Virgie Tovar and Helen Shewolfe Tseng invite students to connect to their bodies and intuition through the tarot deck. Together, we will dive deep into select cards and their mysteries, disrupting western views of universality and prescribed meaning, and demonstrating ways to bring your personal and cultural perspectives and instincts for narrative meaning-making into your tarot practice—rather than leaning on any “canonical” interpretations, or consulting the little book in the box.

This hands-on creative workshop encourages students to use the cards as vessels for (re)imagination and (re)visioning, and as portals for collectively conjuring radical, inclusive, body positive futures.

To bring:

  • a favorite snack and a yummy beverage
  • a tarot deck (if you have one!)
  • a journal and a pen
  • things to collage with (any paper, magazines, packaging scraps, etc. you have around the house, scissors, glue)
  • anything else you need to feel comfortable and magical!



This is a live workshop, with a recording available for 2 weeks sent out to all registered participants.
