Often our hearts and souls know what our minds do not. Tarot is a centuries-old technology that helps our hearts and souls communicate to our minds, using mythical and archetypal images to allow us to access deep reflection towards actionable insight. Jodi Rhoden has utilized tarot as a meditative and creative practice since she was first introduced to it in a Waffle House in Georgia at the age of 14, and she now uses it to guide her practice as a writer. Please join us as we explore the rich history and practical application of this simple but powerful creative tool.
