Tarot and Other Classes


2019 updated June 2019

Star-lore and Spinning:
Spellcrafting with a Drop Spindle

Sunday, July 14, 2019 - one day
10 am to approx. 5pm.

Private Denver-area location;

       space is limited

Many of our sky-myths involve the practice of spinning, as one goddess or another spins our world into existence.  We’ll start the day with a sweeping PowerPoint look at the night sky’s main spinning-theme constellations and a discussion of their myths, drawing on my book Planets for Pagans. Then in the afternoon, we’ll learn the basics of hand-spinning with a drop spindle.  You’ll learn how to use journeying and/or spell-craft to infuse your spun fibers with intention and power, and create enough spun yarn for magical uses, carrying your intentions into the world in material form. 

Knowledge of shamanic journeying is useful, but not required.
Tuition: $95, includes a drop spindle and all other materials.

Teacher Renna Shesso: My own initial studies in Tarot date back to 1968 - I still have those notes. I’ve been reading Tarot deeply for myself since 1988, and professionally since 2002, mainly at Denver’s renowned Mercury Cafe.  I began teaching Tarot practices in the late 1990s.  Both of my big books, Math for Mystics and Planets for Pagans, draw on the Tarot, and I’ve been a presenter on Tarot topics, by proposal and invitation, at

  1. Bullet  Sacred Space Conference (Washington, D.C./Baltimore area) in 2014

  2. Bullet  Denver Tarot Convention (June 2015)

  3. Bullet  BATS - the Bay Area Tarot Symposium (San Jose, CA, August 2015)

  4. Bullet  Northwest Tarot Symposium (Portland, OR, March 2019)

Since 2011, I’ve also been honored to share presentations multiple times at the Denver Tarot Meetup, and continue to do so.

In the area of on-going studies, in August 2017, I took a five-day Tarot intensive with Mary K. Greer and Rachel Pollack at Omega Institute in up-state New York, and in February 2018, I attended the North Star Tarot Conference, put on by the Twin Cities Tarot Collective in Minnesota - it was terrific! - in addition to the many great workshops I attended at conferences where I was presenting.

    More personally, and at the heart of my practice, Tarot is one of my most treasured, deepest and joyfully pragmatic ways of seeking insight and better understanding of every facet of life.  I love Tarot!
