Great workshop for anyone interested in learning more about the fundamentals and history of tarot - Amanda is the best teacher and is hilarious! I can’t wait to take future workshops!
I absolutely adore this necklace! the intricate detail, the colour, the gemstones- I could go on and on. it’s absolutely beautiful. I was initially worried the quality might not be the best (this is always a worry with buying jewelry online) however I can assure this is a sturdy piece made to last.
This is such a gorgeous pipe. it has a nice weight, it’s the perfect size, and it’s packaged with the upmost care. I initially bought this a gift for a friend, but it’s so gorgeous it hurts to part with it! 😭💖
This was the second journeying workshop I have been to of Garrett’s and RR’s and it was absolutely amazing. Garrett is always so welcoming, open, and willing to hold space for us to heal and I am forever grateful for him. Rite of Ritual has welcomed me numerous times with smiles and warm energy, which makes it one of the best spaces ever for meditation and journeying. I’ll be back for any and all workshops to come! :)
can’t say enough great words about Amanda, she is just an incredible being inside and out🖤 this tarot reading was something I was excited for and knew it would be fun. I didn’t realize how much it would be something I NEEDED. Needed to hear, see and feel. It was a great and intense experience and Amanda was there with so much empathy and powerful positive energy and words.
I highly recommend
This was an amazing experience. From the incredible intro and meditation to the past lives work meditation . This workshop was beautiful in atmosphere and energy. The group setting was something I questioned in terms of how much would I be able to experience my own journey back, but I feel it enhanced the experienced with the collective energy, thought and intention.
Visiting past lives was, in every sense of the word, very healing for me.
Garrett did an amazing job at walking everyone through, and creating safe space.
Will definitely be attending more as they come
Thanks for such a wicked time and giving more tools that can be utilized in everyday spirit workings 🖤
I had a really great time attending the past life workshop event at Rite of Ritual. Their back room for workshops space is so full of amazing ambiance and they have it all set up with candles and snacks. The event was 2 hours and after the event was over we got to shop the store after hours and got a little discount even. The workshop was well led and we got lots of take home materials, and the price was super affordable. So much better then spending a boring night at home watching Netflix.
Elyse is super nice and very friendly! You feel like you are talking to a friend even if you are meeting her for the first time. She does amazing readings and gives great guidance. I got reassurance for many things I was unsure of. Would recommend!
I went to Amanda's Tarot 101 class and booked myself in for a reading the next day during the break. After seeing her proficiency in Tarot and magic as a teacher, and from getting to know her in a group setting, it felt very important/urgent to see what her cards had to say about me specifically. Things have been happening to me this year that can only be described as "signs from the Universe". Not only was the reading itself insightful, but also just being able to pick her brain about stuff like auras, being a new witch and navigating this new spiritual path felt validating and empowering. I learned so much about myself in a half an hour! Despite touching on some challenging things that have been going on, I left my reading feeling great and looking forward to what the future has in store, including our next meeting!
When I signed up for this class, I was interested in learning more about Tarot. Looking back on it, this class was the best gift I've ever given myself. Amanda is the best teacher I've ever come across, she is so approachable and FUNNY, and made it easy to understand something that can quickly become really intimidating and complicated. I really enjoyed learning how to ground myself before shuffling - I always second guessed that I was doing it right. I have been pulling a card a day for several months now, but after the class I feel much more comfortable handling and interpreting my cards, and moving on to (simple) spreads. When I journal my cards, I always reference the book that she included. The tea and snacks were a lovely touch, thank you to Kati for such warm hospitality into your beautiful space and for giving us new witchlings an opportunity to learn more with like minded people. I hope I will be able to attend every class that is held in the future - the distance that Amanda travels is so appreciated!! If you are interested in learning more about Tarot, this class is definitely the way to do it. You won't be disappointed!
I have had the pleasure of attending one of Garrett’s previous workshops and several of his events and each one has been an incredible experience.
While the work you’re doing is very personal, I found doing the work in a group was actually a really enjoyable experience and having a diverse group of people meant lots of interesting questions that I hadn’t even considered.
As always, Garrett did an incredible job welcoming us all and making us feel comfortable and supported during the workshop. His knowledge and experience make him an incredible guide. These types of things can be scary and a little intimidating but Garrett’s openness and vulnerability made me feel so at ease going through these experiences I don’t think we could have had a better guide.
Will definitely be back for another workshop!
I purchased a Tarot deck recently and I saw that Rite of Ritual was hosting this workshop, it was too good of an opportunity to pass up.
Amanda was a great teacher who was very engaging and honest with us. She also did a wonderful job making us feel welcome and like the whole group of us were in it together.
She did an amazing job exploring the history of Tarot, as well as the different meanings of the cards in a way that was so helpful and incredible for anyone just getting started with Tarot.
The workbook from this workshop is incredible too. It’s a great tool that’s informative and easy to follow. As I continue my journey to become a proficient Tarot reader it has been so useful to me.
I left this class feeling inspired to continue learning Tarot and I absolutely can’t wait to attend another one.
This was an awesome experience. Garrett did an great job of everything! I didn't know quite what to expect, but it was better than I could have hoped for. Highly recommend :)
I absolutely Loved this event, it was literally a highlight of the month for me. Amanda is genuine, knowledgeable, hilarious and compassionate. I have been interested in tarot for years, and this workshop encouraged me to start using tarot on a daily basis, and also gave me the knowledge and confidence I required. It was so great to meet other like-minded people, and they even provided us with delicious food and tea. The Rite of Ritual store is amazing, the staff are friendly and helpful, and I just love coming here as the energy is warm and accepting. I attended this workshop from out of town, and I can't wait for more events in the future. Thank you very much Amanda and Rite of Ritual!!
The moment I met Amanda I felt a connection, almost as if we could even be life long friends. She was very welcoming, easy to talk to, funny, compassionate & empathetic. This experience was so much more than a tarot card reading. Her approach was very different from any reading you will ever have and it was so worth it. She leads you on an underlying journey into your past, present, future and really makes you understand so much about yourself. I laughed, cried, and walked away with this new sense of myself. I highly recommend you make a booking and I would suggest that you make two bookings back to back so as to have the full experience, I will certainly be back!
An amazing spread and conversation. We all know it's all about interpretation, and she really gets to know you through the cards. You can feel the universe pulse around you. A great conversation over where to go from wherever you are. Answers to questions that leave you with options. I greatly appreciated the guidance.
I love Garrett’s enthusiasm to bring shamanistic practice to a group setting. He invited us into an approachable introduction to diving into the deeper stories we hold for ourselves. I say, scratching the surface, because you leave with a lot of images to reflect on and considerations on what drives our behaviours, fears and tendencies. This is a great way to learn about what the beautiful path of soul journeying can offer!
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about Tarot, take this class. If you’re hesitant or unsure, don’t be. Register immediately when you have the chance!! This class with Amanda was simply amazing! The class was engaging, informative and fun. I would highly recommend it. Amanda was funny and you could tell she was extremely knowledgeable and she created a safe space for everyone to learn and ask questions. I learned so much from her and plan on taking more courses with her when I get the chance. The atmosphere at Rite of Ritual is incredible and they made me feel right at home. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
This was my first professional Tarot reading. Having dabbled for years, it was time to see a real professional reader at her craft. Amanda was amazing. She put me at ease, walked me through the process with grace and calm that instilled the same in me. A rich and worthwhile experience from beginning to end. Amanda tuned into me immediately. Its been a rough year, and Amanda has not given me a compass to weather the storm, but gave me what I call my "Tarot Homework" to help me keep on track. I will definitely be booking a regular 3-6 month check-in for the future.
I had a really great time at the tarot workshop with Amanda! I am a tarot beginner and I found the class really informative and easy to follow. I reccomend checking it out if you get the chance!
I had never had a tarot reading before, and decided it was time. I’ve been a supporter of this space when it was a different shop, and couldn’t think of going anywhere else. Amanda is an absolute gem. Her presence itself is calming and patient, caring. I didn’t know what to expect being a first timer so she explained the process before we began.
I laughed. I cried, which maybe isn’t ‘normal’ but neither am I. But never once did I feel as though I wasn’t welcome or didn’t belong in the space. I left feeling different about a lot of aspects of my life, which turns out is exactly what I needed.
If anyone reading this has been thinking about having a tarot reading, I can’t recommend Amanda enough.
I can’t wait for her to be back.
Amanda's Tarot 101 class is exceptional. She is pure magic! Her teaching style, heart, and sense of humour made me wish the course would never end! She is extremely knowledgeable and has a talent for teaching complex concepts in a way that's easy to understand. I would happily take any course she offers. On top of all that greatness, Rite of Ritual is beautiful and welcoming beyond words. We were SO well taken care of. There was a great sense of community and I'm thankful for this wonderful experience. Can't wait for more!
The Past Life Healing workshop was amazing. Garrett was knowledgeable and presented a non judgmental attitude. I would definitely recommend this workshop to someone who is interested in learning about their past lives and how to let go of some of the negative effects left lingering.
I picked this up the moment it arrived in the store, I was just drawn to the look and feel immediately (velvety goodness). I've just finished reading it and I've enjoyed it immensely. While I don't agree with everything she says, there are some really fascinating chapters that resonated with me hard. It's only 150 pages so a quick and easy read, but also something you can go back to for regular reminders. Sections are written on how to deal with your "haters" and how to truly connect to that wellspring of witch power that sits inside of you. In a world revolving social media and presenting the perfect image, this book offers another good reminder that you don't need to have an expensive or extensive amount of tools to be a "real witch" because you already are one. Honestly, it's just such an approachable book for anyone just starting this journey or perhaps getting back on this path, you won't be disappointed.
Amanda is a wonderful teacher! She genuinely cares about your relationship with the Tarot, and teaches in a way that allows you to find what clicks with you to further your practice. If ever there is another Tarot workshop I will do my all to be there!
