Diving into the Tarot Tableau: Read Cohesively in Every Context
Session 2: Adapt the Tableau

Presented by Maria Alvíz Hernando

Once that you are familiar with the spread, it’s time to adapt it to your reading needs! You will learn how to glean advice and prediction from the cards, and how to adapt the layout that you know to fit the specifics of your question. You will learn the keys of timing with this reading system and practice reading for a partner.

Session 3: Extend the Tableau

Presented by Maria Alvíz Hernando

Meet the Nine Card Tableau’s big sister: The 5×5 Tableau. Learn to tackle a large spread with ease and incorporate new techniques to go deeper in your interpretations and aim for longer periods of time in your readings. In this session, you will practice reading a 5×5 in groups and have the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned and ask questions.

For this session you will need a tarot deck (I advise bringing a mini-deck if you have one, so you can comfortably lay the 5×5 Tableau). You will be given a handout, but you can bring material to take notes if you wish.

Crystal Breath Movement

Presented by Mercedes Vasquez

Are you ready for some self-care, self-love, and self-healing?

The Crystal Breath Movement w/Caliente is a workshop that will take you through a combination of movements that will help express and release any pent-up or unexplored emotions, followed by a unique breathwork technique that will awaken and deepen your awareness and love within and culminating with a healing crystal meditation that will leave you feeling grounded and rejuvenated.

Come with an open mind and an open heart!

Please make sure to bring water, make sure to wear comfy clothes to move in, (no shoes or sneakers required), and if you have any, bring your crystals.

Oracular Intentions Sound Bath Meditation

Presented by Jenny Stafford

This deeply relaxing and centering experience blends divination with a meditative sound journey, a unique opportunity to come together to explore and manifest clear intentions for our experience at StaarCon 2023!

The session unfolds as Jenny guides you through a simple introspective Major Arcana pull and symbol meditation technique before you surrender to invisible waves of gentle sound from Himalayan and crystal singing bowls, gongs, chimes, and other healing instruments.

*Please bring a Tarot Major Arcana deck (or alternate oracle that you are already familiar with) and, if possible, a yoga mat or beach towel and a sweater + socks or blanket to ensure maximum comfort while reclined during your sound bath experience. If you are not physically comfortable resting on the floor for the sound bath, chairs will also be available.
