The Reading Room: Tarot Practice (Live Online)
July 8th, 6:00-8:00pm Pacific
Location: Your House via Zoom!
Greetings Tarot Lovers!
Get cozy in your own home and practice reading the Tarot with us! The Portland Tarot Guild is educational and social; it is my sincere desire that we connect with the cards and each other through social events to create community, connection, and friendship. Until we can do this live (previously "Tarot in the Park"), we're zooming! Hence, have a snack and your cards ready for this free event. This is a fun and casual Tarot meetup to practice in a relaxed atmosphere. We'll gather for kinship, learning, and sharing of knowledge.
We'll start with a grounding meditation followed by introductions. We'll then draw a card and learn how to look at the card for meaning through dream language to have a common ground to read with -- without the guidance of books.
Each meeting we do something a little bit different and explore various layouts.
Have your cards ready. All levels welcome - Beginners warmly welcomed and encouraged!
Where: Please register at Cascadia House to attend via Zoom. The Zoom Meeting Link will be given to you the day of the event.
Sliding Scale: $10, $15, $20. The sliding scale is offered to create a broader range of affordability. Please support the instructor with a level that feels comfortable to you.
Notebook and Pen, Tarot Cards, Snack/Drink (optional - we're faking a picnic!), Open Heart and Open Mind
I look forward to seeing you!

Tarot as a Spiritual Practice (Live Online)
July 22nd, 6 pm to 8 pm Pacific
Location: Your House via Zoom!
Hello Tarot Enthusiasts!
Purpose: To discover ways to experience the Tarot as a Spiritual Practice with Meditation, Visualization, Intentional Writing, and Mysticism work.
Spiritual tools take us deeper into ourselves, and the Tarot offers a tool to meet these spiritual gems with a Beginner's Mind. Each time we pull a card, we have an opportunity to grow. We'll be working with the Tarot through:
Meditation: There are many ways to meditate from chanting, empty mind, to candle gazing. We'll be exploring various ways, and then experience meditation through the Tarot.
Visualization: A form of meditation, visualization with a Tarot card can open up deep places within us, give us beautiful motivating ideas, and take us farther along our spiritual path.
Intentional Writing: Taking our intentional thoughts and bringing them through our bodies, our arms, and hands and onto the page (not the computer!) has huge impact on stuck thoughts, spiritual ruts, and can create big "AHA" moments. Intentional Writing with Tarot is a spiritual experience that takes us beyond our limited and brief thoughts to our open hearts.
Mysticism: It is said that the purpose of mysticism is to create a direct connection with the Divine, the Universe, God/Goddess, or All-That-Is. One way to experience this is through contemplation with the Tarot, and we'll do this in a very hands-on way.
You will also be doing readings for yourself to ascertain how you can connect more deeply to the Divine.
Sliding Scale: $15, $20, $25. The sliding scale is offered to create a broader range of affordability. Please support the instructor with a level that feels comfortable to you.

New Advanced 9-Week Tarot Course
Begins June 22nd Live Online
Advanced Tarot: Open the Doorway to Your Creative Source
With Sally Dubats
Learn how the Tarot empowers you to open the doorway into your creative source where thoughts and feelings snowball to solutions that make a true impact on your life.
Evolve your Tarot practice with the all-new Advanced Tarot course. This 9-week course will bring deeper feeling, connection, and depth to your relationship with your cards and readings as you profoundly shift into the Spiritual and Personal Growth realm of the Tarot.
During this course you will evolve from the standard "Seeking Advice" to evoking change from your own creative source within. This works whether for your own creative source, or for those of your friends, family or clients: Rather than "giving or seeking advice" that creates dependence on the cards, you will be empowered by tapping into your creative internal source.
Learn how the Tarot can empower you to open a doorway into your creative source where thoughts and feelings snowball to solutions that make a true impact on your life.
Expand your skillset for yourself, for clients, and those you care about. Explore:
- The massive shift from "Seeking Advice" to empowering through Evoking Change
- Motivational readings
- Tarot as a Spiritual Path
- Personal Growth with Tarot
- Behavior Change Science
- Form a meaningful relationship with Numerology

Sally commands the room with grace and ancient wisdom. Her class is interactive, inquisitive and equally open-hearted and open-minded. She gives you practical tools that you can learn the deep information with and still reference on your journey well after the class has ended. I've actually thought about taking it again just to see what new insights might arrive! She builds a sweet little community in her classes. Her thoughtful presentation of the tarot's wisdom is impressive and fun! ~ Tracy T.
This is a fantastic class - Sally is a wonderful teacher! - Maria
I have tried other Tarot classes and came away trying to remember cards. This class was SO different. I came away really seeing the cards and understanding them from a metaphysical standpoint - from many dimensions! If you want to learn the Tarot, take Sally's class! Tori H.
Sally is able to read a room full of people and direct their energy towards a common goal that somehow serves every individual in some kind of way. She can feel the common pulse and use it to promote introspection, connection and healing. ~ Ivana
Sally is an excellent creator and facilitator of Sacred Space. Her knowledge and resources are unlimited. Sally's capability to transform a person's experience is a gift. I have had the privilege to work with her in a group atmosphere where she shares her many ways of delivering a life changing shift. She delivers with grace, sincerity, and humor. She is the most integrated being, with the biggest heart, I have had the pleasure of meeting. ~ Melissa D.
You'll definitely want to take the journey she unfolds for you! ~ J.D.
