WHAT I DO

  • Distance (e-mail), Individual and Party Tarot Readings, Distance Reiki sessions, Meditation tutorials, handcrafted meditation mala beads, handcrafted jewelry & accessories.
  • Tarot Readings are a customized, ephemeral folk art consisting of verbal or written discussion of randomly selected Tarot cards that typically include artistic embellishments (illustration, keyword notes, photo etc.) E-mail, video, digital handwriting/illustrated, pen and ink versions available.

WHAT I DO NOT DO

  • I do not predict the future,
  • I do not accept medical or pregnancy questions for Tarot readings.
  • The information and services on this website do NOT diagnose, cure, or treat any illness. They do NOT replace professional medical care, mental health care or qualified financial advice.

DISCLAIMER, REFUNDS, EXCHANGES

  • I will work with you to provide the best session / e-book / mala possible. In the end, however, these common sense policies must serve as final word in any transaction. Making a purchase or scheduling a session indicates your agreement with all policies and disclaimers.
  • No liability real or implied is accepted in any way. You are 100% responsible for anything that happens during a session, because of the session, or how you use the information in readings, books or tutorials. Use my services 100% at your own risk.
  • Reiki sessions, meditation tutorials and Tarot sessions and e-books are ephemeral in nature and often highly customized. As such, I am unable to offer refunds or exchanges at this time.
  • Mala and other accessories are individually handcrafted, often from natural components. Please allow for variations. All items are sold as-is with no cancellations, refunds or exchanges.

PRIVACY

  • Your privacy is top priority. I do not discuss my clients with anyone. No information is shared except with your express written permission or in cooperation with legal authority. Example readings, readings in the blog or YouTube channel are edited to protect all personal identities. Any public answer to a Tarot question is done in a privacy-edited format with the foreknowledge and consent of the sitter (person getting a reading.)
  • I collect basic contact information including but not limited to name, age, phone, email, address. Any information we discuss is used to provide the customized services that you have requested.
  • For accuracy, contact information is re-collected with each new purchase.
  • Each reading is unique, customized ephemeral art. A reading’s usefulness decreases as time passes. Readings and contact information are routinely deleted. No replacement readings are available.
  • No third-party questions please. I only read for my direct client, and do not answer questions about friends, family, romantic interests, or anyone else out of respect for the other person’s privacy.
