Participants will learn how to use the ECOtarot deck to offer climate future readings. ECOtarot readings use the archetypes of the tarot to help channel scientific research related to human-driven climate disruption. They offer an intimate public exchange about critical issues facing our culture and communities. By engaging the heart and meeting each person where they are, the readings will connect climate science with one of the necessary elements of social change: human will.
