One night in 2005, my name came up on Google. One of my Ferol Humphrey Method graduates was talking about Tarot, and she mentioned me as her instructor. I clicked thru to the Dallas Plano Tarot Meetup, and immediately joined for some Tarot fun after my workday. We renamed the group Living Tarot Meetup in fall 2005, and I now manage it~ we also gave birth to Living Tarot Facebook, which was very active for about 5 years, from 2008-2013. Now we are alive internationally as Forest Hills Tarot Meetup, and here I am! I offer workshops and training all over the world, to brand new students of Tarot, and long-time students, teachers, and well-known trainers who work internationally as I do.
I enjoy providing personal Tarot consultations, and teaching Ferol Humphrey Method Intuitive Development as my full-time profession. I have been teaching Ferol Humphrey Method in Dallas and NY, as well as by phone, since 2002. I enjoy watching the lights come on in the eyes of newcomers as they realize what Tarot can do, and who they can be with Tarot. Also, I like watching Tarot create bridges for people who would like associations and experiences beyond the surface level. I build community, locally and globally. And, Ferol Humphrey Method Intuitive Development really works. If you want to schedule a personal Tarot session in my NYC office or by phone at[masked], email [masked]. Visit my website at www.ferolhumphrey.com. Join me in 2016 at the 4th annual Tarot & Psychology international Tarot conference held in NYC, and the 14th annual Readers Studio international Tarot conference in NYC, as well as local gatherings in Forest Hills. See you there!
I simply love De Tarot in der Herstelde Orde, a Dutch JJ deck which I bought from Mary Greer; also James Ricklef's Tarot of the Masters, Lunatic Tarot, Tarot of Secrets, Tarot of Reflections, Navigators Tarot of the Mystic SEA, a highly embellished version of Carol Herzer's Illuminated Tarot, and Robert M. Place's Alchemical Renewed. And FINALLY, I am the proud owner of Marie White's Mary-El Tarot, as well as a print of her Death card. I await the rumored Joanna Powell Colbert oracle, from which I have a beautiful print. Universal Waite is my daily reading deck.
First thing in the morning before I re-enter beta brainwaves. I make no attempt to see anything in the cards, gain insights, or reason it out. It is just the cards + my subconscious, before I have returned to man the Bridge. Why get in the way?
I bought a deck because I have always been interested in the frontiers of consciousness, and esoteric systems. I wanted more SOMETHING. I figured, what the heck, why not try Tarot~ it is an intuitive and archetypal symbol system, and new to me.
Hi, I'm Ferol Humphrey! I bought my first Rider Deck in 1994, and I was actually a little uneasy about it. I find that really amusing now! Tarot is one of the best parts of my life. I practice regularly and teach professionally. Very rewarding.
It is a pleasure to test reading theories, examine world views, and make up new creative approaches to living, on the spot, with such intelligent, humorous, adventuresome people. Really! The artwork of Tarot, oracle, and playing cards seems to bring out the best in even our newest people. Everyone gets a little bit nervous, and then we cross our edge and find a bit of a thrill. It is scary to cross our edge! It is a lot of fun to do it with others who are also willing to dare. We wind up exhilarated and full of laughter.
