Gaian Tarot for Tarot Beginners

Are you ready to learn how to read the Gaian Tarot cards with confidence and joy?

Gaian Tarot AltarIntroducing . . . “Gaian Tarot for Tarot Beginners,” a six week course with Joanna Powell Colbert

If you’ve found your way to this page, you are probably one of those people who have found that the Gaian Tarot is “your” deck . . . you’re drawn like a magnet to the landscape, people and animals on the cards, and to the worldview of the deck creator (that’s me!).

You’ve probably even done some readings with the Gaian Tarot and have found that it speaks to your heart. But you might also have found yourself puzzled or bewildered or confused at times, because you can’t figure out the message in the cards.

I’m here to help! I’ve been teaching tarot since the early 1990′s, and as you probably know, I spent nine years creating the Gaian deck. I designed this e-course with you in mind. It combines the best of what I’ve learned from many tarot teachers over the years with my own unique spin on the cards.

I want you to move from a place of being uncertain of yourself to having the confidence to read for yourself or for others. I’ll guide you to that place where the cards become a trusted ally and companion, a tool to help you access your own inner wisdom.

The Gaian Tarot has a lot in common with traditional decks, but it has some significant differences too. And we’ll cover all of those!

This course is for you if:

  • The Gaian is your very first deck
  • Or you want a tarot refresher course with a special Gaian spin
  • Or you just want to join us, hone your intuitive skills and have some fun!

If you don’t have a Gaian deck yet, you can purchase the beautiful new Schiffer edition from your friendly local independent bookstore. You can also order it through Amazon. If you live outside the U.S., you can order it through the Book Depository, who offers free delivery worldwide. And if you have a smart phone, you can use the fabulous Gaian Tarot app

Here’s what people are saying . . .

“Thank you Joanna, it was a beautiful presentation.
My favorite part was in looking at the Star card, I enjoyed the feelings that it brought out in me when I was listening to you; they added to my own feeling of the cards. I love the deck, it’s been one of my favorites for a long time now, it’s easy to bond with.”  MR

“I loved your module 1 – so interesting & you make a very complex subject comprehensible when you break it down & in the way you communicate – thank you very much!” KS

“I enjoyed the first module, thanks so much for offering it! In particular, I appreciate having an active role in learning. Your presentation was well done and engaging, I enjoyed diving right in with my deck. Looking forward to the rest of the course.” KB

“I’ve completed Lesson One and totally enjoyed it (and I have taken many e-courses). It’s obvious that you spent a great deal of thought and effort in creating an e-course that would be applicable to every learning type. Your explanations are clear, the PDFs and other materials that support the lesson speak to both the left and right brain. I’ve pulled my first card and started my journal.  I am amazed at the wealth of info I accessed intuitively using your prompts. Maybe it’s true that when the student is ready the teacher appears—even via the Internet.”  CT



What’s in the Six Modules?

The following topics are covered in the lecture part of each module. There is also a practicum part of each module, in which we will practice different techniques in reading the cards.

Module 1: Getting Started
Module 2: Your Personal Tarot
Module 3: The Seeker’s Journey through the Majors
Module 4: Elements & Numbers
Module 5: People Cards
Module 6: The Art of Asking Questions

How Does the Course Work?

I’ll release a module every Friday for six weeks, beginning Friday September 30th. Each module consists of:

  • A (video) webinar, also available as an audio file
  • Handouts (downloadable PDFs)

We will hold a live weekly teleseminar call to discuss the material on six Wednesday evenings at 5 PM Pacific time, beginning October 5th. The calls will be recorded in case you can’t be there live.

We will also have a Facebook group that you can join, to discuss the material with fellow students. I’ll be available to answer questions there as well.

You’ll be able to download the videos, audios, and handouts to your computer, tablet, or phone, and keep them forever. You’ll have access to the course online for six months.
