Although my intention was to blog regularly from RS2010, the weekend was so jam-packed with activities that my good intentions came to nothing. I do hope to make it up to you over the next few weeks by sharing some of my experiences.
If you to read more, do check out The Tarot Lady’s blog. It was her first year attending, so it is interesting to hear her experienced along with those of RS veterans. Plus, she has pictures!
This year, the master teachers were: Dr. Elinor Greenberg, Robert Place, and Mary K. Greer. The master classes form the core of the conference and each are three-hour long intensives. In addition to the three master workshops, there is a Thursday evening optional class taught by Wald and Ruth Ann Amberstone–the founders of The Tarot School and the hosts of the Readers Studio. But that’s not all. There are also breakfast roundtables on Saturday and Sunday morning (this year led by Paul Quinn and Donnaleigh de la Rosa, respectively). Dan Pelletier of The Tarot Garden entertained us during the Friday Lunch and Learn session. And on Friday and Saturday evenings there are 5 or 6 additional optional classes that run from 9 – 11 pm. Oh, and let’s not forget the socializing and the shopping. Both of those activities abound!
So, if you attend everything, you are on the go from 8 am until at least 11 pm. And you know what? Most people do it. Sleep takes a backseat to the desire to learn and commune with like-minded people.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll share a little about what I learned during each workshop and class, including my exciting breakthrough regarding scrying.
I’ll close this entry with a few pictures and a bit of news. I didn’t take as many photos as I should have and so most of these were taken by either Ellen-Mary Kerough O’Brien or Donnaleigh de la Rose. At the end of each Readers Studio, they announce the master teachers for next year. The teachers for RS2011 will be: Corrine Kenner, Caitlin Matthews, and yours truly. Yep. Me!

Having fun shopping and at a workshop.
