StaarCon 5 Featured Speakers

StaarCon welcomes more than 50 speakers presenting a variety of topics!

StaarCon has a long history of featuring presentations from some of the most prominent tarot artists and influencers in the industry. This year, at StaarCon 5, we are excited to welcome Christiana Gaudet, Cardsy B, and Siddharth Ramakrishnan, PhD. as featured speakers.

The tradition of the intensive session started with our first StaarCon in 2021. That year, Christiana Gaudet led the conference with her intensive presentation, Operational Tarot. Marion Kirk, Peter Coe, Heather Gaffney-Darnell, and Gita Rash conduct this year’s intensives.

They will join the over 50 speakers at StaarCon 5 for more than 50 hours of information and entertainment.

Of course, those attending virtually can experience the presentations as they are streamed live from the conference center.

Check the agenda often as the schedule changes daily.

Friday

Christiana Gaudet is the host of StaarCon and was the first speaker to present at StaarCon 2021. She returns this year to present “The Universe Speaks in Verse: Exploring Connections Between Divination and Poetry.” Christiana is fascinated by poetry’s strong and historic presence in divination and magic. She is excited to share how playing with words can make us better diviners and connect us to universal energy.

Cardsy B is a well-known deck designer, reader, author and wellness influencer and we are excited to have her present at StaarCon 5. Many know her from her award-winning Hex and the City podcast.

Sunday

Siddharth Ramakrishnan, PhD, is not only an accomplished author and deck designer, but also a renowned neuroscientist. He is a familiar face at NWTS and Omega, and we feel extremely fortunate to have him present at StaarCon 5. His presentation, titled “Imagine Me and You: How Your Brain Deals with the Transaction Between Diviner and Querent During a Reading,” promises to be both fascinating and thought-provoking.

Attend StaarCon 5 In Person

As privileged attendees of the live event, you will have exclusive access to three full days of enriching content at the Delta by Marriott.

For your comfort and convenience, two rooms will have live presentations streamed on the user-friendly Accelevents platform.

The third room will be reserved for viewing live virtual presentations.

For those seeking a unique and transformative experience, a fourth room at the conference center will be dedicated to experiential presentations. These presentations, involving meditation and healing, will not be live-streamed. Instead, the teachers will share their wisdom through pre-recorded videos, creating beautiful experiences for in-person and virtual attendees.

This year, we feature a new Hospitality Room where attendees can meet our sponsors, speakers, and exhibitors in a casual, relaxed atmosphere.

Look for big changes in the StaarCon Marketplace. This year, the vending area will be open to the public for the entire event. We aren’t sharing the vending area with speakers this year so the marketplace is available all day!
