I'm so thrilled to announce that I'll be spending some summer time in Lily Dale, the largest spiritualist community in the US. For the occasion, I'll teaching an intuitive tarot workshop on July 29th and will be giving readings on July 30th at the Spirit Art Gallery, on the generous invitation of artist and medium Dr. Susan Barnes.
I was introduce to Lily Dale by my friend, Shannon Taggart, who photographed the spiritualist community for more than a decade. She will be curating a serie of lectures and events in The Dale around these dates, which I highly recommend to attend if you are in the area.
Intuitive Tarot Reading Workshop

As an experienced tarot reader, Laetitia is a firm believer in the empowering nature of the Tarot as a a visual tool to help us bring clarity to the complexity of life, providing information and insights to decisions were facing, or shining a light on options that we might not have considered.
In this class, Laetitia will present a variety of simple techniques that will help you to read card without the help of your beloved tarot books by developing your intuitive abilities. After a historic overview of the tarot and its basic organization, attendees will learn to unpack their own symbolic values, and how to connect deeply with the visual archetypes of each cards. Together, we'll learn how to weave a story out of the cards' different meanings, and will explore different ways to create spreads that resonate with your query.
This class is a beginner to intermediary level, everybody is welcome! Students are not required to bring their own tarot decks. We'll work mainly with the Rider Waite Smith deck, but also with more abstract decks such as the Khan & Selesnick "Carnival of the End of the World" and the Wild Unknown.
