Episode 10: Creating an Inclusive Tarot Practice

Episode Summary

In this episode, Amanda and Sarah talk about some ways they are consciously building inclusive Tarot practices. This episode was borne out of many conversations we've had about politics, social justice, and magic.

Episode Notes

Strange Magic is created by art witches Sarah Faith Gottesdiener and Amanda Yates Garcia and is produced by music, sound, and art witch Carolyn Pennypacker Riggs. In this episode we discuss some ways we are consciously building inclusive Tarot practices. We talk about some things we each do personally to create an inclusive space in our private Tarot practices.

In this episode, we go into personal detail about our thoughts and behaviors around creating an inclusive practice as white people. We discuss language we feel needs addressing in the "spiritual new age community". We also share some practitioners who do this work full-time; some of them mentioned are listed, with links, below:
