4-12" mosaic stepping stones by Sara Larson
IMPORTANT UPDATE RE: Keeping healthy
During this extraordinary time, Gabriola Studio, 1962 South Road, will be closed, and all classes & gatherings postponed until further notice.
Not to lessen, in any way, the seriousness of this pandemic, the medical and government instruction to “stay at home” is also giving us an opportunity, in solitude, to deepen our connection with our inner consciousness or ‘higher selves’. The planet can already be seen to be responding positively to our smaller footprints, with less pollution seen from space and even dolphins swimming through the canals of Venice! ‘Think Global, Act Local’ has never been more directly pinpointed in our lifetimes.
The Tarot cards are a wonderful tool to facilitate this awareness. Please take some of this bonus time to become better acquainted with yourself (;-) and appreciate the breaths we take that connect us with everything else.
To facilitate you in this process, I am continuing to do readings by Skype or telephone. What the cards are revealing is always interesting!
By appointment only please – by email (email@example.com) or text (250-616-7415). Payment can be as per usual, or by donation, trades, or sliding scale. Whatever works!
