wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your talk yesterday. You are a great
lecturer--lively, well-prepared, and oh-so knowledgeable....Thanks for your good
you for another great year of Tarot. They just keep getting better."--Karen
you for all of your teachings. I could not have done it without you. I think I
am on the road to something wonderful."--Diane S.
just finished the course given by Carolyn Guss on Tarot Archetypes and the
Fool's Journey. It was great. Carolyn presents so much interesting content that
draws upon a liberal arts education, including history, mythology, psychology,
philosophy, and religion. I certainly recommend having her back to expand on
what she presented. Most of us thought of the Tarot as some kind of
fortune-telling or occult device, but it really is highly symbolic and carries
many life meanings."--Pat H.
just completed the three-week course on Tarot Archetypes and the Fool's Journey.
It was a most fascinating class....I learned so much about art, religion,
psychology, and many various cultures....Carolyn is a true scholar who
passionately involves her students and communicates her topic clearly....The
class was very dynamic and interactive, with students sharing their knowledge in
various fields."--Lisa M.

me. I’m looking forward to the new workshops and study groups.”—Susan C.
“Just wanted to thank you for that most
stimulating weekend of Tarot! I learned so much and felt so inspired to keep
studying and reading my cards without looking ‘at the book.’ You are a great
teacher and gracious hostess. I feel very fortunate to have come into your
Tarot Circle of light and inspiration. Thanks again!”—Winnie R.
“I just want to thank you for the Tarot
lesson you gave me a few weeks ago. Before the session I was relying entirely on
commentaries for the symbolism and significance of the cards, but afterward I
find I am finally able to see the
cards. You were really helpful! I think the wonderful room and your use of tiny
figures combined with your clear, spare, scholarly narrative have helped me to
make the connection between visual/symbolic and abstract narrative. I can now
see and connect with the cards in a way that is helping me work through the many
challenges in front of me.”—Kathy F.

expected. For that, I thank you.”—Christine B.
