About the Instructor
Chuck Kausalik-Boe, M.A. received his Masters Degree in Human Development from Saint Mary's University in 2008, with a focus on Goddess Studies and Tarot. Chuck Boe began his Tarot studies over three decades ago, in 1981, and has been reading at the Eye for many years. He also teaches Reiki. Here's what he says about the use of the Tarot:
"I believe that the tarot is a tool for spiritual guidance. The answers that we receive from the tarot should be used to heighten our understanding of issues in our lives, not be seen as definitive messages about our future. I clearly stress to all clients that they have free will to make choices in their lives regardless of the reading."
