The Tarot Practitioner Course
My name is Kim Echammaal Coull and I run a year-long comprehensive Tarot Practitioner Course in Perth Western Australia (and online) designed for those who would like to read professionally and/or for themselves but also for those who would simply like to become more aware of Who They Are and develop a deeper understanding of their experiences.
Tarot Practitioner Course is based on a combination of many years of psycho-spiritual practice. It is designed to help you to integrate your humanity and your ‘spiritual’ aspirations with love, respect, and heart-centred purpose; to realise and embrace your authentic/manifested/imminent self; and encourage awareness, peace and freedom mentally, spiritually, and psychologically.
The course takes you on an embracing and investigative journey deep into yourself. You are encouraged to experience the cards for yourself in a safe and nurturing environment in an atmosphere of self-embrace, self-love, and self-revelation. Over the year-long course you are offered tools of self-healing to enable a change in the way you see yourself and others, release you from self-criticism and self-negating beliefs, empower you by neutralising conditioning, and give you a psychologically coherent vehicle for self-attainment/realisation (on whatever level is meaningful to you). By journeying with the Tarot on your own terms, not only do you learn what the cards mean but also how to apply their meanings therapeutically, psychologically, and spiritually in a personal and professional client-centered approach. In this regard, much focus is placed in getting you ‘out there’ reading if that you your desire.
The Psycho-Spiritual Heart of the Course
At the heart of this Course, is the journey into self/Self, what I sometimes call (in the Sufi tradition), The Beloved, or into the Truth of Who You Are (there are so many ways to describe in Ineffable Self). It is hoped that as a result of this inner journey, not only will you feel more awakened to Who You Truly Are, but you will master a beautiful, artful, creative, and nourishing modality through which you may share your wisdom, care, and healing knowledge with others.
Honouring Your Sensitivities
If you wish to honour and nourish your sensitivities (not always appreciated by you or the world at large) and make these a fruitful part of who you are and what you do; if you wish to help others and share your wisdom and healing energy, or simply be less hampered by unconscious conditioning and self-defeating thought patterns, then this course will give you the tools and an avenue for you to express this skill of sensitivity and compassion, intuition and psychic counselling. Whatever psychic or psycho-emotional skills you bring can be used in tandem with the cards.
My Own Journey
My own journey – over 40 years – has taken me into the heart of many psychological modalities (but especially Depth & Archetypal Psychology, Quantum Psychology, and Narrative Therapy) and spiritual teachings (Buddhism, Sufism,Sikhism, Christianity…) and these paths have coalesced into my perspectives on Tarot (I am also a certified Astrologer and Sound Healer/Soul Musicality Practitioner). My psycho-spiritual work (in all areas) has evolved, from a blend of these sacred paths/arts, into a reverence, and embrace of The Beloved and has lead me to read and teach Tarot through the lens of unconditional love, acceptance, and the realisation of Who You Truly Are beyond concept, thought, and observer.
Here in beautiful Perth, Australia, I have taught this version of ‘Beloved Tarot’ for 20 years (and I can’t thank my past students enough for all they have taught me).
I am a writer, artist, and poet with a background in tertiary education, archetypal psychology, narrative therapy, creative writing and the psycho-spiritual use of the Tarot, both as a Course Facilitator and Practitioner. I have extensive and practical knowledge of reading and teaching the cards from a psychological, archetypal, and therapeutic point of view. I am not a ‘fortune teller’ but use the archetypal, psychological energies in the Tarot to understand your past, how it feeds into your present and, therefore, your possible future.
Tarot Symbolism and Outcomes
Conscious expression of your story (conditioned scripts, wounds, and fears) leads to a more conscious and integrated life, a life less fraught, more free, hopefully more peaceful and ‘user-friendly’. I work with the symbolism of Tarot in the cards to evoke your emotional body, tap into cellular memory, and facilitate, through self knowledge and self love, a healing, enriching, and conscious embrace of the ‘soul’. This includes opening doors to long forgotten ‘psychological parts’ and bringing them ‘home’ so to speak into a cohesive whole. Through this experiential journey, Tarot (and its symbols and archetypal references) becomes organic, another language. Pictures/symbols have the potential to unlock non-verbal responses that can open us to a deeper understanding of the self/Self and shift frozen positions into a life-giving and sustaining confluence of meaning, practice, and peace (all of life is metaphoric – especially from a Quantum view point – and reading symbols comes naturally to us). Learning this symbolic and artful language leads to the acquisition of an incredibly useful skill-set (personally, globally, and professionally) that can initiate and evoke insightful, interactive, and beautiful communications with others, helping clients to understand their lives (on whatever level) and guide them to their own healing
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would more information or simply want to discuss your options etc.
I have also developed a series of meditations and Affirmation Cards that are designed to enhance your personal journey to self-love and self-realisation. These meditations and cards are born out of many years of practice and teaching, many years of watching the struggle in so many for self-love. These tools are offered as a visceral and useful addition to your practice as intimate and embracing messages from the Beloved Within to help you remember how much you are loved – that You Are Love, to help you remember that you are always held in the Divine Embrace, whether you experience these messages purely on a psychological level or embedded and integrated into your spiritual path.
