WORKSHOPS

“Lisa is a great leader, teacher, and an inspiration. Her insight is amazing.” Ann Brendon 

VISIONARY ART EXPERIENCE

“Lisa opened the dream of the tarot for me while lighting the path for my own creativity to interplay within the deep well of the tarot’s symbolism. Working with Lisa is a beautiful experience.” Pam Bailey

Experience an individual Visionary Art Experience in my beautiful Santa Fe studio. Beginning with a Tarot reading I will determine your unique life cards. You will then be guided in a meditation to meet your tarot archetypes. From a deeply relaxed and open place you will intuitively create a piece of art from your visions. A variety of art supplies are provided such as collage material including tarot imagery and acrylic paint to work on a hardboard panel.  Artists and those who are new to art making are both welcome. I offer instruction and feedback. You will return home with a piece of art that reflects your soul and will work as a guide to lead you through this life journey.

Studio session by appointment including a tarot reading and art supplies – approximately 3 hours.


LEARNING TAROT

“Learning tarot has always felt intimidating to me until I met Lisa de St. Croix. After receiving a powerful reading from her (that helped me navigate through a difficult situation in my life at the time) I knew I had to become her student. Her teaching approach is simple, well organized and fun. I received a solid foundation to continue learning on my own and often refer to the notes from my lessons. I feel blessed to have met Lisa! Peleg Top

 1. ARCHETYPES

Major 2 VJ eThere are many ways to explore which cards relate to you in the tarot. You might automatically identify with certain cards because you share characteristics with them. The major arcana specifically identifies twenty two archetypes that include the mother, father, teacher, lover etc. In this workshop we will work with three aspects that are present within you, finding the cards that represent those qualities and give voice to the archetypes.  January/ New Year

In this workshop we will be looking at an important relationship in our lives, whether it is with a beloved, some-one we struggle with or even ourselves.

February/Valentines
