My first introduction to the Tarot was when I was 15 years old.
I was instantly drawn to the magic of the cards. They seemed mysterious and at the same time, familiar. I have always been a visual person. Tarot imagery speaks to me in a language that transcends words. I feel it's resonance deeply. The stories the cards convey have the power to plumb the sub-conscious and bring it into conscious awareness.
I have a unique set of skills that I bring to the table as a reader. My primary teacher is a woman who has been reading Tarot for the last thirty years. I also have what I would call a Tarot mentor who is both a skilled Tarot reader and my Meditation teacher. It is through him that I learned how to track energetic flow in the body, and open to psychic information, which is really nothing more than a way of perceiving things outside of the usual five sense gates. I am a Reiki practitioner, which has helped me tap into a universal flow of energy when I’m reading the cards. I’ve had people comment that they can really feel it when I’m reading for them. I aspire to be helpful above all else. I see no reason to devote my time to the Tarot unless it can help people make better choices in their lives, as well as give them some clarity and comfort.
“Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again , come , come.” -Rumi
The caravan came into being in a flash of inspiration around four years ago. I built it with the express purpose of creating a beautiful, safe, space for a person to receive their message. It is like a rolling church. Vardo means caravan in Romany, which is why I chose it for my company name.
