(It’s funny how a lot of stuff piles up in your inbox and to-do list when you’re gone for a few days. I just now got the chance to write about my trip to BATS! So here goes…)
Well, I’m back from BATS! I had a great time and I was so happy to see many of my Tarot friends and colleagues. I had some great conversations and spent some quality time with friends such as Barbara Oliver, Jaymi Elford, Georgianna Boehnke, Theresa Reed, Carrie Paris, Gina Theise, Katrina Wynne, Melissa Hill, Paul Nagy, Dan Pelletier, and James Wanless. It’s so great to see them other than in Facebook.
And I attended some great sessions from speakers such as Carrie Paris, Gina Theise, Melissa Hill and Mary Greer. There was so much to learn and so much to take in, but that’s the whole point. I attend BATS and other Tarot conferences because I want to continue growing and developing my skills as a reader.
I was especially intrigued by Mary Greer’s and Melissa Hill’s sessions on the Lenormand oracle cards. I had taken only a cursory look at this deck before, but it’s something I’m definitely going to investigate further and learn how to use now that I’ve attended these sessions. Yet another divination tool to add to my toolbox!
I definitely had fun, as you can see by the pictures below. I certainly look forward to next year’s conference!
