online workshops with femiwitch
My online workshops use meditation, ritual, and storytelling to explore the philosophy and subtle energy of the Tarot from a social-emotional lens. My style of reading emphasizes self-study, personal power, and holistic approaches to healing, and I would love to share it with you.
Please note that all workshops are live, online events. Classes are capped at 20 students per cohort to ensure a quality learning experience and individual attention.

What is the Tarot?
The Tarot is a deck of roughly 78 images, each containing iconography that reflects some aspect of human experience. The cards themselves are not magical - hence the existence of numerous iterations of the deck - and originated as a parlor game. Contemporary Tarot readers use this tool for cartomancy, fortune-telling, self-exploration, mediumship, storytelling, and other spiritual and mundane practices.
What is intuitive Tarot?
Intuitive Tarot is an umbrella term capturing non-dogmatic approaches to the use and interpretation of Tarot cards. As the name suggests, this style of reading heavily emphasizes the personal intuition of the reader/seeker/querent (depending on specific approach) over prescribed interpretations. My personal style of Tarot reading emphasizes social-emotional development, introspection, personal narrative, and self-empowerment. You can hear Haylin give a reading on the “Dearest Y’all, We Have Some News” episode of podcast Another Round.
What if I don’t know anything about Tarot?
A device with internet access is required. Supplemental Workshops cover specific topics and theories related to Tarot, but are not instructional classes on interpreting Tarot cards or spreads. Classes are taught at a beginner-friendly level and assume no expertise in the Tarot. True beginners may want to begin with The Fundamentals of Tarot workshop before exploring supplemental topics.
Do you offer live classes?
Yes! Many of my Tarot workshops are offered live at Catland Books in Bushwick, Brooklyn; contact email@example.com to inquire about upcoming dates. I also teach in various locations in NYC and occasionally travel to other cities. I post my event calendar regularly on Instagram and you can also inquire by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
