Holiday Open House 2018

Giving Back to Our Community

On Sunday, December 23rd Tarot Circle of the Treasure Coast Meetup and I joined forces to create another successful Holiday Open House. This was the second largest Holiday Open House in 20 years, and I am confident that next year’s will be even better.

This year I moved the event from the Palm City Professional Building to Unity of Stuart, which turned out to be the perfect place for us. We had ten readers in the classroom, four readers and healers outside in the courtyard, and two volunteers assisting me in the kitchen where we greeted folks, offered snack and collected the contributions for Treasure Coast Food Bank.

Everyone working at the event was a volunteer. We were so busy that, halfway through, when tarotist Barbara O’Brien came through to get a reading for herself I pressed her into service, making her another of our volunteers.


John took the food we collected to Treasure Coast Food Bank on December 26. We had raised over five hundred pounds of food and $200 to help those in our area who are food insecure.

I am so grateful to everyone who working with me to make this annual event happen. I look forward to working with you again in December 2019.

I am also grateful to the many people who took time out of their busy holiday schedules to generously bring donations for the food bank in exchange for sessions with our readers and healers.


It’s always great to see old friends and meet new ones at these events, and to watch tarot students blossom into readers. I’m also happy to give our greater community an opportunity to sit with some of the area’s best-known readers and healers, as well as to meet some new talent.

Special thanks to our readers and healers, Mary Ellen Collins, Blue Evans, Ambika Devi, Mark Gross, Shasana, Tyrone, Gerri, Lee, Donna Diroma, Barbara O’Brien, Sherry Adrame, Julie, Maureen S., Tyronne, and Ruby Hands. Thanks also to my helpers for the day, and to Unity of Stuart for working with me to arrange this event.
