PRACTICAL MAGIC: CLASS SERIES
Craving a community that combines spirituality with creativity? Ready to harness the power of your intuition and imagination? Want to learn to read tarot for yourself as a tool for self care and growth?
PRACTICAL MAGIC welcomes you.
Practical Magic is a monthly tarot series led by Sophia Somerville, ideal for anyone who wants to deepen their relationship to this transformative art form & self-care ritual. Once a month we meet to share insight, explore archetype, foster thoughtful discussion and cultivate a personal tarot practice alongside likeminded peers.
Practical Magic is a space to connect to your inner witch*, play around with the cards & develop your relationship to intuition. This group is a space where curiosity, experimentation, humour and diverse perspectives are celebrated.
Think of it as the intuitive study group your inner witch has always craved. Each event centres on a different theme.
The theme for May 2020 is:
⚡️TAROT FOR TWENTYSOMETHINGS⚡️
This month’s class is a 4 parter dedicated to my fellow twenty-somethings out there. Tarot for Twenty-Somethings is designed to help you claim this decade of your life for yourself using the tools of tarot, meditation and writing as your secret weapons.
I’m in the final year of my twenties. Nearing the finish line of this most chaotic decade feels like a milestone I’m not supposed to reflect on, let alone celebrate. I feel almost sheepish, daring even, to dedicate time and space to honour it’s legacy. Why do we downplay the value of our 20’s? Why the impulse to rush ahead to ‘thirty, flirty & thriving’?
In ‘The Defining Decade’ psychologist Meg Jay writes, “Our 20s are the defining decade of adulthood…Personality can change more during our 20’s than at any other decade in life…The brain caps off its last major growth spurt. When it comes to adult development, 30 is not the new 20. Even if you do nothing, not making choices is a choice all the same. Don't be defined by what you didn't know or didn't do.” All of life is a journey of self-discovery & actualisation, but the rocky road of our twenties are designed to help us become more ourselves. This will continue, but the foundational and often messy, embarrassing, cringe-worthy ground work is offered to us in our twenties. Let's make the most of this weird time and band together.
The point of this series is to honour the fact that *it’s not meant to be perfect, it’s supposed to be messy!* The way I see it, the point is to have experiences, and to then reflect upon them. To develop a dance with life through trial and error, movement and pause, light and shadow. To sit with the unknown and befriend change.
This class series is particularly suited to those in their Saturn return or at the tail-end of their twenties, but is ideal for anyone in this decade - early, mid or late.
This series is really about sitting with the themes and lessons that are arising for you wherever you find yourself, and connecting with others who are doing the work alongside you.
