Before you enroll, you might want to know:

  • The Tarot Boutique workshops are usually not at the introductory, brand-new beginner level. But this one is different!
    For this class, all you really need is an open mind about the Tarot. Some passing familiarity would be helpful, and having your own deck will be important. But any Rider-Waite-Smith deck will do (they are inexpensive and easy to find).
  • The focus here is on your creativity, not learning the cards.
  • Seating is very limited – only 35 spots are available.
  • If the class fills up, there will be a waiting list. You will be invited to fill any possible vacancies in the order you registered, so you might save the date, even if you don’t get in right away.
    You will have a couple of hours to respond, before the opening is passed to the next person in line.
  • Life happens, and things do come up. I understand. So if you cancel your registration up to 7 days before the program begins, I will refund your registration.

These are intimate, tailor-made workshops for people who want MORE in-depth exploration into magical subjects, SOMETIMES (but not always) including the Tarot.

I offer these classes as choice, specialty morsels that stand alone, or that can combine to add new sparkle and depth, helping your practice move beyond beginner.


Tarot Social Gatherings

I am the founder and organizer for Triangle Tarot and Friends, one of the oldest, largest, most successful Tarot social groups in the world. For 19 years, we’ve been meeting every month in the Raleigh-Durham Triangle area for practice, learning, and friendship.Personal photo of people giving each other Tarot readings at a restaurant table at our NC Tarot Meetup

Until it is safe to meet in person, we are meeting via Zoom every month, which has greatly expanded our membership and the opportunity to welcome Tarot celebrity guest presenters.

All levels of Tarot enthusiasts are cherished — from beginners to collectors to professionals. Ours is a very fun, eclectic group and newcomers are always celebrated. In addition, Triangle Tarot and Friends is  an online location for the global Tarot community to meet and share our love of the Tarot together.  To learn more, click here.


Speaking Engagements

Over the years, I have given countless presentations to groups both large and small, both public and private, and for all ages, from high school classrooms to retirement homes. My topics have included the Tarot, of course, but I also love inspiring people to expand their understanding of intuitive, spiritual, and magical practices.

For instance, I have been honored to teach twice at the prestigious Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at NC State University (affectionately known as “OLLI“). My “Introduction to the Tarot: Superstitious Silliness or Modern Wisdom?” received the highest reviews, and plans are already stirring for more such offerings in the future.

I would be delighted to talk to your group, or teach for your facility or program. Just ask!Personal Photo of Beth giving a lecture for the Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship audience

I am a master-level Tarot practitioner and instructor as well as a trained intuitive. Now celebrating my 50th year of serving with the Tarot, including more than two decades as a successful, full-time professional reader, I have also taught dozens of different Tarot topics for many years.

At last count, I’ve had the privilege of teaching over 600 students, some of whom have gone on to become professional readers also.

I am a member of American Tarot Association, the Tarosophy Association, and Tarot Association of the British Isles; founder of one of the world’s oldest, largest, most active Tarot Meetups; I’ve been featured in countless magazine columns, podcasts, interviews, and articles; and I am a former officer of the Cherry Hill Seminary board of directors.

It’s all about paying attention.
Attention is vitality.
It connects you with others.
