Practitioner Highlight: Carolyn Agis

Hello from resident Tarot reader and teacher at MINKA! 

When asked to share some info about myself and the work that I do, I didn't quite know where to start. And then I thought of one of my favorite children's book, "Alice in Wonderland," where Alice is wisely advised to "start at the beginning and when you get to the end...stop."

The beginning is that I have a special gift: I love connecting with other others and hearing their story. It really became evident as a teenager bagging groceries at Whole Foods and spending way too much time with customers by their cars as they spilled their life story. My brother compares me to a device with every sort of plugin and port that you can imagine. No matter how you connect, I somehow have a way to connect with you.

This potential to connect is what is known as the suit of cups in the Tarot. It is the foundation for the work that I do as a Tarot reader and flower essence therapist. I am the King of Cups in the Tarot and this is a card that enjoys being grounded in the deep waters and helping others navigate their own course of action. The flower essences were a natural progression from the Tarot, as it allows a querent (the individual receiving the Tarot reading) to assimilate the Tarot's medicine through flower medicine. In other words, it is a means to expand the alchemy that is also known as your healing.

The Tarot and the flower essences are both systems to better know yourself and be a conscious creator of your reality. I integrate these as well as the tangible tools of yoga, crystals, mantras, and meditation to help you assimilate the information you need to become who you truly are.
