StaarCon Headliners Rachel Pollack and Sasha Graham

Meet Our Headliners

At StaarCon 2022 we will have over thirty presenters. Many are authors and artists whom you know, like Nancy Hendrickson, Gita Rash, Jenna Matlin, Jamie Sawyer, and others. Some are emerging talent that we are excited to share with you.

Our two headliners this year are Rachel Pollack and Sasha Graham.

Rachel Pollack has been a guiding light in tarot since the 1980s. She is the creator of The Shining Tribe Tarot, and the author of more than seventeen books on tarot and spirituality. She is also a poet, and a science fiction author.

Sasha Graham is the creator of Dark Wood Tarot and the author of several books on tarot, including Tarot Diva, 365 Tarot Spreads, and 365 Tarot Spells.

At StaarCon we are committed to bringing you the very highest level of wisdom and knowledge for your spiritual journey. We are thrilled that Rachel and Sasha, along with all the StaarCon 2022 presenters, will be helping us honor that commitment.

Welcome to Accelevents!

Our online StaarCon attendees will join us on the Accelevents platform. This is the conferencing platform we used for StaarCon 2021. Accelevents works best on Google Chrome.

Online attendees will be able to enjoy classes, presentations, and workshops from the comfort of their home. Online attendees will get to meet and interact with other online attendees, and with those who are attending in person.

In person attendees will use Accelevents to help them navigate the conference, choose their classes, and network with in person and online attendees.

All attendees, both in person and online, will enjoy the thirty day “Afterglow” on Accelevents.

For thirty days after the conference ends all ticket holders will be able to view all the recorded classes included with their ticket. There will also be scheduled online events in the Accelevents lounges during the Afterglow.

Our use of Accelevents makes StaarCon accessible to you from anywhere in the world, and gives added features and benefits to all StaarCon attendees.

COVID Safety at StaarCon

We at StaarCon are partnering with the DoubleTree Hotel and Executive Meeting Center to ensure that we can offer an event where you will feel safe and secure. Of course, the option to attend StaarCon online offers you a completely COVID-safe experience.

If you choose to attend in person, here are the steps we are taking for your safety.

The meals we are serving will be outdoors. Meals will be plated rather than banquet-style.

Attendance will be limited (get your ticket early!).

The hotel bar opens onto a poolside patio where we can socialize outdoors.

These difficult times have been challenging for everyone, including our conference community at large. Now more than ever it seems important that we be able to gather, learn, and celebrate, at whatever level of physical proximately seems most appropriate to each of us.
