A Life of Love

By day, I teach in Colorful Colorado, and I’m looking forward to turning 40 this fall! I grew up in an unconventional Catholic church that, on Palm Sundays, met up with the other local Christian churches in a park, prayed together, and then processed back to our own services. That sort of open-minded example in my childhood encouraged me to explore how various faith traditions could support our highest selves.

I began dabbling Tarot when I was 16 years old. By the time I was 18, I was casually reading for friends and elbows deep in my search for spiritual truth. I’ve studied multiple pagan traditions, worked with crystal and angel symbology, and practiced yoga and kung fu. I eventually landed on Buddhism as my framework for life.

So where does Tarot fit in? For me, Tarot is the story of humanity summed up in universal archetypes and experiences. These hold truth no matter the spiritual or religious path. Tarot is a tool through which we can remind ourselves of what we already know, and a professional Tarot reader is a friend along the way.

I’m especially fond of using the cards as a tool for visualizations, rituals, and meditation. As archetypes of human experience, whether they seem negative or positive, all cards have a message for us to use in our continual improvement. They remind us of what we already know and spark our connection to our highest self. My readings are intuitive and informed by traditional card meanings.

I began reading Tarot for others as a way to meet my life purpose as a lightworker and aspiring bodhisattva. My personal mantra is Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu; May all beings be happy and free, and may my life be a giving to this happiness and freedom for all.
